View from small town of Grafenhausen in German Black Forest to Swiss Alps.
The direct distance between my camera and Swiss Alps is more than 120km.
Grafenhausen is located in southern Black Forest at an elevation of 1,000m a.s.l. and it is well known for its Rothaus brewery, one of Germany's most successful and profitable regional breweries.
The brewery was founded in 1791 by the Abbot of St. Blasien Martin Gerbert as a measure to encourage economic growth in the Black Forest.

This is a lovely view with a cosy, green rural foreground and a fantastic background where the snow-clad peaks seem to be flowing in the air. The photo is carefully composed with a narrow line of treetops in the foreground.

The way the mountains in the background fade into the mist is really something, Miro - they almost become abstract shapes floating in the sky, or really angular clouds! The scene below is wonderful, and the tractor adds a great human element. Thanks for sharing it.

nice the endless view from the small town to the snowy tops of the backdrop Mts.I like the woody foreground as the tops with the snows to looks like to 'fly' on the air.
Have a good day,Danos

Beautiful! The snow clad alps seem to float in the air, above the forests and fields in the foreground. A marvellous view!

with the inclusion of the tractor at work in the foreground you have given the image an extra interest to complement the stunning scenery.
From the fields to the floating mountains there is fine sense of perspective.

Wonderful view showing the Alps through the clear high air while lower slopes dissappear into haze. Foreground field slopes nicely and the tractor is a good extra detail.

Spectacular view, this is truly beautiful! Well composed to show off both the foreground and background, which appears to be floating in air. This really shows the grandeur of the Swiss Alps and the lush green countryside of Germany. Great job in combining the two countries and showcasing their natural beauty. Very impressive!

Salut cher Miro
A beautiful landscape photo. The wide-angle works well, the depth of field is superb and I am stunned that what I thought were clouds are actually the peaks of the mountains. Impressive.

We done I like the transition between the green and blue tone. The trees are the lungs of this photo. I can almost breath the fresh air from this picture.
Have a nice evening,
