We get almost a three part picture, in foreground a little bit dark through the forests.
Middle the mountains with snow tops, to the sky light grey clouds and a splendid blue sky.
Good depth and perspective.
Sharpness and clarity are excellent taken.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

La tonalité des teintes donne beaucoup de caractère à la belle image de ce paysage de montagne aux sommets enneigés.

The distance between the field and the mountains is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the mountains. The good luminosity is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.

Ciao Ike, you go at home with so nice pic in your last italian trip...nice also this one French version ;)
wonderful place and wonderful sky well captured....
jcpix (3796) 2013-02-16 17:01
Fantastic scene Ike, I love this viewpoint! You've taken and created a splendid composition from the valley floor all the way up to the mountain peaks. The compressed layering of each element really makes for a subtle but neat visual, and the cloud formation adds even more interest to the photo. Good clarity, the exposure has made for some nice, strong colors. I'm quite drawn to the depth of each layer as well as the overall atmosphere of a bright and warm summers day. Well executed!
Have a great week ahead.

Ciao dear Ike
These Alps are breath-taking, aren't they? Excellent Rule of Thirds framing really lets them dominate the frame. Superb textures and lovely crisp colours. Thanks for sharing, have a beautiful Sunday.

Hi Ike, Fantastic panorama of European highest peak. nice blue sky and beautiful cloud over the mountains.
have a nice Sunday
mirosu (5557) 2013-02-17 0:34
You have done well to produce such a lovely shot in pretty good light conditions. You have successfully used the green hills foreground interest and placed the white mountains to the BG. I also like the white clouds with blue sky above. All in all an excellent mountains landscape photo.
danos (74518) 2013-02-17 0:58
Good morning Ike,
nice the mountain-scape view with the snows to re covered the top of the mountain-range.I like the good presentation as the beauty of the place.
Have a good Sunday,Danos
Robert1969 (6330) 2013-02-17 2:58
The picture has nice layers and that emphasize
the depth. The good composition and the cut
makes the picture nice wide.
One little advice: the fence has no function,
try to avoid this.
josepmarin (55209) 2013-02-17 5:07
you offers us a grand landscape in this good framing. We can admire its superb beauty, by means of a deep and luminous image, with a beautiful colors.
The white clouds which cover the gorgeous Mont-Blanc mountain range, are a nice aesthetical complement in your composition.
krzychu30 (9399) 2013-02-17 5:35
your photo conveys well beauty and uniqueness,but also vastness and austerity of the Alps.I enjoy especially the way you were able to juxtapose lush,green landscape with austere character of Mountains.Well done in outstanding quality and nicely captured colors.Another captivating addition are for me these cloud formations wrapping so lovely the mountains.
Have a nice sunday
ourania (13085) 2013-02-17 5:42
the scenery is impressive, the deep colours very beautiful and the atmosphere elating. I like very much the balance and neatness created by your well considered composition and framing. There's great depth, enhanced by the clouds. What fascinates me the most is the shade of the clouds along the snow capped peaks. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,
UlfE (13740) 2013-02-17 6:05
Very nice photo of Mont Blanc taken from this side. I think you have one of the best views of this majestic mountain from the upper parts of Geneva. Your composition is really great with agricultural landscape in the foreground, the wood covered mountainsides in the middle and the snowcovered mountains in the background. TFS and have a nice Sunday!

Bonjour Monsieur Harel
Nature requested you as photographer and put on its nicest getup for an official portrait taken masterfully without any overexposure in those subtle white details of clouds and mountain.
I can feel the first magnitude of this splendid scenery.
Eric_vd (283) 2013-02-17 9:15
Wonderful Vista with magical clouds, well done!!
It's making me jealous :)
jlbrthnn (79787) 2013-02-17 12:14
Landscape trees, dark green, highlights the mountain and the sky. This is a clever composition, and a good quality photo. Bravo.
Have a nice evening
raszid62 (18482) 2013-02-17 23:53
Great mountain panorama of the High Alps. White clouds and snow on the mountain tops contrasts with the green valley. Image I really like.
הצהריים טובים. פנורמת הרים גדולה של האלפים הגבוהים. עננים לבנים ושלג בפסגות ההרים בסתירה לעמק הירוק. תמונה שאני מאוד אוהב. .
adramad (27872) 2013-02-18 4:16
Wonderful and spectacular scenery, with a sensational POV provides nice contrast between the green of the lush vegetation of the mountains we see in the foreground with the background of the magnificent mountains, where snow dominates everything, the clouds on their tops is perfect bonus to the composition.
Very good, both the brightness and sharpness.
Happy start to the week.
P/ D. Ike Now, I have to comment on the photos, the rate at which you upload, with more space between each other.
maloutim (8750) 2013-02-18 13:23
Excellent capture of the "Massif du Mont-Blanc".
Lovely contrast between the wooded hills in the middle ground , the snow-capped mountains and the beautiful cloudy sky.
Thanks for sharing.
Didi (49158) 2013-02-20 8:40
I know that the views in the French side are better.
very good point of view
Kielia (20657) 2013-02-21 8:52
it is not only this overwhelming view, it is also this beautiful light on the scenery that makes this impression very attractive. I can really understand why you spent your holidays here and now you are sharing these wonderful images for the benefit of this fantastic site!
kato (7086) 2013-03-15 4:38
You're capturing well this place by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the green mountain layers in foreground and beautiful Mt-Blanc like a lady with snow. It's impressive in the village in foot, too. And, the blue sky with thick cloud's belt draws out a good impact in this image. It is the good photograph in which the atmosphere of the early summer in this place is shown.
jmdias (46240) 2013-05-25 2:47
first time I visited this region I thought 4810 meters was a very high peak, but when I arrived by car in a place 5300 meters altitude in Bolivia I discovered how small it is. haha.
nice view of the green valley with the peaks covered with clouds and ice.
