This is a photo from Ischgl, a ski resort in the in the Paznaun Valley in Tyrol., Austria . It a rather small village with a population of about 1500 people. It is situated at height of 1377 meters. Above the village there is the Silvretta Arena Ischgl-Samnaun that is connected with the ski resort of Samnaun across the border in Switzerland. It is one of the largest skiing areas in the Alps. What you see here is the small river Trisanna that flows through the village of Ischgl.

You have used the perspective lines of the river very well as lead-in to the scene. If handled correctly backlight can produce some wonderful images with excellent contrast. You have achieved that very well with no signs of over-exposure. The part-frozen river is sparkling beautifully. Good work

The is a picture with a great clarity and brightness. One can almost smell and enjoy the cold, clear air.
The glitter if the sunshine in the melting water is lovely.

une curieuse idée de nous replonger dans les neiges de l'hiver mais je dois avouer que cela va apporter de la fraicheur à ceux qui en ont besoin.
Moi, je trouve la vue sublîme, les blancs bien balancés et surtotu j'aime ce calme silencieux.

Beautiful landscape shot...it looks very fresh to my eyes under the 40c degrees in Greece!
Excellent handle of light and very good perspective from the point you composed it!
Have a nice day,

A beautiful winter landscape from the Alps with a great light and a nice variety of blueish hues in the hazy background. The river, covered by ice and snow is well placed in the foreground, also to lead the eye nicely into the composition. Thanks for sharing!

A very beautiful image of mountains, with beautiful blue ... Like La Defense in Paris !!!
But the atmosphere is more relaxed and more calm, it would now need this cool in Paris.

You chose a very good angle for the showing of the Trisanna River.
Excellent perspective through the long river those us leads to the fantastic mountains in Background.
I feel the cold when I see the snow and ice, but splendid for this image.
Very well done, TFS.

belle photo de ce paysage de montagnes, de glaciers, avec cette superbe rivière qui coulent sous la glace et que l' on aperçoit par endroit ou la glace est fondue.
Bel effet et superbe luminosité, ce paysage est superbe.

A very beautiful landscape of moutians with a great depth of field, a nice FG. The compsition is very well balanced with the river in the middle. Good use of light gives nice contrast.
have a good evening,

Like so many others I prefer to look at winter images in the summer, hahaha!
Well, I think I can live with this kind of winter, when the sun is regaining some warmth and small signs of upcoming spring shows up...
A well composed presentation with the diagonal river, difficult snow in backlight is well exposed!

You've been in corners of my country that I didn't even know existed, Ulf! What a wonderful winter shot and mood. Not too cold, just right to enjoy a nice day on the slopes ...
