Fantastic view of these iconic alps. I love the flowers and the colour. Good contrasts and light management, with an excellent low POV.

just like you wrote-a truly majestic scenery and real delight for our eyes.It must be a pleasure to spend some time in such wooden cottages like this one and enjoy the nature in its purest form.And you were able to convey in your composition all the best features the place has to offer.Beautiful place and superb presentation of it!
Have a nice sunday

A splendid Alpine view with lovely light and colours. Thanks for sharing. Have a good Sunday.
jhm (122474) 2013-02-03 2:40
Again a very lovely place in the mountains.
The small house and the mountains with snow tops care for a wonderful composition.
Perspective and depth are pleasant for look at.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice Sunday,

Hello Ike ,
A splendid alpine view , with the wooden chalet in the FG , and the impressive needles in the BG .
maria-v1981 (10403) 2013-02-03 4:40
i found very intresting Ike this alpine votanical garden because is very unusual. In combination with the mountains background it's a place with a lot of intrest. Beautiful and strong contrasts, lovely colours and light.
Have a nice evening,
pierrefonds (48369) 2013-02-03 4:48
The distance between the garden 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.
Silvio1953 (98217) 2013-02-03 5:18
Ciao Ike, fascinating mountain landscape, lovely composition with wooden house in F_G, excellent clarity, splendid light and wonderful colors, very well done, my friend, have a good Sunday, ciao Silvio
jcpix (3325) 2013-02-03 6:17
Wow, what rugged landscape...this is fascinating to look at Ike, so much to process here. As you've put it, "majestic scenery" is a very fitting description. I'm loving the composition, the foreground leads into the frame on a bit of a diagonal line and then the peaks shoot up vertically with another set going diagonal again in the opposite direction. The lighting gives so much clarity and detail and the cabin adds a nice bit of color along with the scattered ground cover. Quite an impressive scene. Bravo!

Kielia (20467) 2013-02-03 7:34
what a wonderful view!
This fascinating sky above the garden and the fantastic light make this composition very attractive. I also like the perspective. My compliments!
Romano46 (4956) 2013-02-03 7:36
occi ci porti alla visione di una delle montagne della mia terra e lo fai con una buona composizione nella quale colore e soggetto concorrono a dare un'immagine gradevole.
Bene il contrasto e la luminosità.
Ciao e buona domenica

Beautiful location. I thinking about visit this area this year. Thanks for sharing.
marina7 (5860) 2013-02-03 8:24
a very beautiful picture, full of light and colors and very cleverly composed. Love the cold atmosphere despite lots of sun. Lovely image!
Sonata11 (28375) 2013-02-03 8:25
Wow!!! what a view. Magnificent composition of this spectacular place. Colors, sharpness, clarity, light are fantastic. Wonderfully executed of this perfect quality image. I really love it. TFS and have a great Sunday,
fabbs99 (5499) 2013-02-03 9:43
Great shot with nice details.Well done.
adramad (27556) 2013-02-03 10:11
Superb POV with these rugged peaks dotted with snow, everything is pure rock, these lovely plants we see between them, the wooden house is a nice touch of high alpine mountains.
Beautiful sky with those clouds that touch the peaks that look like teeth.
Very good brightness and detail in the image, a great place to consider.
Have a good night.
cornejo (18116) 2013-02-03 10:22
Hello Ike, nice and interesting picture of this lovely view of the beautiful mountain, with the garden in the foreground and a lovely sky in the background. Very good picture with very good quality, well composed and framed. Excellent and lovely job very well done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this interesting work.
Good evening and happy start to the week.
Best regards and best wishes,

Bon cadrage du chalet, une magnifique des montagnes sous un ciel superbe que filtre une très belle lumière, un endroit agréable a une belle hauteur
jemaflor (69011) 2013-02-03 13:12
Lovely mountains landscape, a shot well composed with this woodenhouse, a nice sunny day, well done.
SnapRJW (18784) 2013-02-03 21:55
Hello Ike - What a pleasure it must have been to enjoy this Alpine garden in such wonderful surroundings. A beautiful shot with the garden making an unusual and interesting Fg to the sharp peaks. Lovely colours and detail. Warm regards rosemary
mkamionka (24559) 2013-02-04 0:15
beautiful view. I like the characteristic needle shape of the mountains. They are well decorated with the clouds on top of them. The foreground seems to be nicely arranged. You picked a great POV also including the charming wooden house. Lovely place, well presented,
bona (10148) 2013-02-04 6:34
super view of the alpes. What kind of plants have in this botanical garden? Since it is a cold place I think not many species of plants can grown there.
emilbo (20862) 2013-02-04 6:35
Ce doit être une merveilleuse aventure que de monter la-haut. Ce paysage de montagnes est de toute beauté. Le chalet de bois est très intéressant, on a dû enlever des roches pour le construire. Une présentation de qualité et d'excellents détails. Les plantes sont rares pour un jardin botanique.
Toutes mes amitiés et bon début de semaine,
Nicou (97775) 2013-02-04 6:48
quel beau chalet de bois superbe cabane et image avec ces montagnes en fond et ce jardin botanique avec les fleurs des alpes merveilleuse photo et ensemble.
bravo et amitié
josepmarin (55063) 2013-02-04 10:24
a majestic alpine landscape of mountains, a paradise for climbers with its needles, its sharp rocks of granite and its high summits.
You have caught this wonderful spectacle of mountains covered with snow and the wooden hut skillfully, and reached a high quality image, a good light and a beautiful colors.
It's a beautiful work.
fabianoleite (9016) 2013-02-04 13:36
Beautiful mountains in the background, well contrasted with the house in the front, which creates a great sense of distance. Good work, beautiful. Congratulations!
elenimavrandoni (5789) 2013-02-04 13:44
Ike, this is a majestic scenery to my view as well!
Spectacular mountains in Aosta a must winter destination!A paradise for hikers and trekkers!
have a great evening,
macjake (39235) 2013-02-04 23:58
an Alpine Botanical Garden!
now thats something new!!
I was wondering what all those name tags were doing on the ground! :)
seems like a wonderful place to go for a hike too.
I can almost feel the crisp clean air.
lovely landscape, breath taking.
jlbrthnn (79773) 2013-02-05 4:34
A beautiful part of France, and a well chosen point of view to the sharp ridges of the mountain. The quality is excellent. Bravo.
Have a nice day
clic (11033) 2013-02-05 7:00
Scarce mountain plants, but how instructive to visitors and I presume no mountain goat can ruin those, given the steep needles of Aiguilles du Diable.
How an hostile environment can be so appealing, especially when captured with such finery!
Royaldevon (17791) 2013-02-05 7:39
Well, where have you been hiding this!
It must be one of the most beautiful shots that you have posted from Italy.
The f/g grabs attention with the highly textured rocks and the pretty alpine flowers; the m/g has the excellent details of the wooden chalet and, when things don't seem as if they can get better, the rugged, cloud-topped mountains, emerge like giants, towering protectively and giving an awe inspiring b/g.
My warm regards,
danos (74056) 2013-02-05 8:15
nice the view of this wooden construction in this altitude.I like the brilliant light,the vivid colours as the clear atmosphere over there.
Janusz1974 (2275) 2013-02-05 9:53
Very nice presentation of the Alpine botanical garden.
Lovely mountains landscape.Perfect composition.
eldancer1 (17088) 2013-02-05 13:55
Looks like a natural botanical garden, just affix labels to growing plants. Those mountains peaks are amazing, and this was taken in June still with snow covering them. Good lighting and dof with sharp deails. Well done, tfs.
zoomer (3584) 2013-02-06 17:48
Hi,a truly splendid scene with the garden in the foreground being a labor of love.Excellent colors and clarity.Best wishes,Wolf.
Hansaphotos (5435) 2013-02-08 1:13
What a beautiful mountainscape you`ve captured here. Incredible that a botanical garden is located at this altitude. The cabin and the flowers creates a nice foreground in this nice nature scene. The signs with the name of the flowers appears almost as yellow post labels. Very nice work:) TFS. Have a nice weekend.
Best regards, Erling
Miguel82 (7854) 2013-02-08 13:55
A superb picture Ike, many interesting elements, an old trunk, purple spot of flowers, wooden house, rocks, ice and Alpine mountains in the background
Sharp shot, fine colors
mirosu (5533) 2013-02-08 17:43
You have made a good attempt here, choosing to go in tight on the wooden house. The composition works well, and the focus with deep DOF draws the attention not only to the house but also to the mountains behind. The house itself is very well-exposed. Asymmetrical arrangement creates excellent balance and harmony. Excellent!!!

yes I agree it is a majestic view and very skilfully delivered. The composition is superb with very strong foreground and pretty background. Perfect DOF and sharpness.
Thanks for sharing
thebest (3370) 2013-02-09 18:27
A really lovely Alpine image - The Botanical garden is not something I would have associated with cabins mountains & snow.
Very interesting would certainly make a nice postcard.
The clarity & wonderful light of your photo is superb.
mesutilgim (68014) 2013-02-10 0:50
Absolutely one of your "best"s here at TE !
A dreamy capture from italian Alps with perfect pov and perfect layout.
TFS and have a nice weekend
Fis2 (73124) 2013-02-10 2:27
Wonderful view, beautiful mountains.
Excellent frame and composition.
Have a nice sunday
Didi (48934) 2013-02-10 7:33
Interesting nice composition but I note that you lost a little bit image definition by using the sharp filter or by using a numerical zoom
serp2000 (29242) 2013-02-10 23:23
Wow! Great view,Ike!
I can imagine a oxigen hungry on this place. Very interesting report from the Botanic Garden. TFS!
raszid62 (18212) 2013-02-11 1:53
I like rock plants - they are such a small, small, yet strong. This beautiful small garden surrounded by high mountains and towering, snow-capped peaks. I really like this little wooden cottage. Wonderful colors and sensational image quality.
הצהריים טובים. אני אוהב צמחי סלעים - הם כה קטנים, קטנים, אבל חזקים. גינה קטנה זה יפה מוקף בהרים גבוהים ופסגות מתנשאות, מושלגות. אני באמת אוהב את בקתת העץ הקטן הזה. צבעים נפלאים ואיכות תמונה הסנסציונית. .
emka (58194) 2013-02-11 23:41
Interesting rock garden. How all these plants can grow on stones. impressive view of all these mountain peaks. Gorgeous place.
sandpiper (6007) 2013-02-14 2:29
Fantastic composition of this stunning alpine scenery. The inclussion of the cabin is great. Good presentation
COSTANTINO (42746) 2013-02-14 10:28
a shot that has everything,
dynamic contrast of the blue sky,the snowy
sides of the snowy mountains,beautiful
mountain landscape,perspective and
depth are almost perfect,this place
is not only beautiful,it is amazing
adores (28236) 2013-02-14 16:20
A really unusual Botanical Garden - I'm sure it must be really interesting also! Good composition, with part of the wooden house and the mountains in background. The sky was really beautiful on that day!
bayno (16213) 2013-02-15 3:37
Great pic Ike,
so wonderful place, you frame so good the scene, very good colors, dept with clear details every were...
ourania (12427) 2013-02-24 3:30
the composition has a very attractive sense of depth and dynamism, the many diagonals cascading around the picturesque cabin are so effective. The very strong, rich and lovely colours enhance the dynamic impression with their vibrancy. The light and the contrasts have a tremendous impact as well. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,
claudeD (24173) 2013-03-07 11:48
Wonderful view from the Alps. I like your pov and the very fine colors.Very good sharpness for this very interesting shot.very good fotojob.tfs.

jmdias (45820) 2013-03-22 16:10
interesting this botanical garden with wild species. I can see the placards with the names of the small native flowers in the ground. interesting details. TFS.
kato (6789) 2013-04-01 19:39
You're capturing well this landscape by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the mountain range with the steep cliff and snow, and foot with a cottage. It's interesting the surrounding around the cottage are rocks, too. And, in spite of high ground, that the plant has made the flower bloom gives the forcibleness of a life.
Robert1969 (6238) 2013-04-17 7:51
These are the places that I like: rough, beautiful
and no other people arround me. I can almost feel
the silence and can almost smell the fresh air.
Point of view and light management are very good.
