Photographer's Note

Black Forest is not only about dark forest with large trees, wooden houses, small lakes and streams.

Black forest offering also beautiful views. Especially the view from southern hills to Swiss Alps. Do not believe that you can view the Alps mountains which are more then 100 km away every day.

You must be lucky to be on the right spot during the day (possible early morning or later afternoon) with excellent visibility.

The days when the foehn wind (warm, down-slope wind that occurs in the downwind side of a mountain range that has dropped most of its moisture on windward slopes) occurs are offering perfectly clean atmosphere with great visibility.

This occurred in central & northern Switzerland and southern Germany several times during my stay in April.

I've posted in this gallery similar photo in 2012, but that was taken in September. Both photos taken from almost identical place (Grafenhausen-Hoechenschwand).
