beautiful natural scenery, so wild, pure and suggestive. I love the depth and the textured layers that lead to the imposing rock and to the distant slopes immersed in the clouds. The light and the colours are magnificent. The light's play with textures and shadows has been captured with superb subtlety. I love all the natural colours, the contrast provided by the blue hues is marvellous. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,

Hello Ike ,
Seeing the thumbnail (without looking at the country) , I was sure that this was the famous Matterhorn . But no . The same silhouette for this outstanding rocky peak in a snowy and cloudy scenery .

wow! What a view. An amazingly beautiful. Fantastic management of perfect light, splendid colors, fantastic exposure. Your point of view is fabulous. Composition and presentation is magnificent. This mountains are increadible, the fog, snow. Overall I really love it. Thanks for sharing.
All the best,
Highmountains (2674) 2012-10-10 11:33
What a shot ! The slope and the black craggy peak like rock has been very well captured. The mist, the mix of rocks and snow - it must have been a very fulfilling trek.
The photograph is sharp, clear and has depth of colours. The reflections from the white snow has been very well controlled.
The patches of clear blue sky from between the low clouds are a beauty. Waao !
Thanks for sharing !
jemaflor (97197) 2012-10-10 11:54
Very impressive and beautiful peak, well taken, good result with the contrast and the snowy landscape.
m (0) 2012-10-10 11:55
it's so cold and windy out there I can almost feel winter approaching looking at your image:)
I like the clear and soft light and very good sharpness that accentuate the coldness of the picture.
Cricri (119427) 2012-10-10 12:06
C'est un sublime paysage de montagnes rocheuses, j'aime l'effet des nuages comme de la fumée blanche, très belle présentation avec de très jolies couleurs
mkamionka (36711) 2012-10-10 12:43
I am speechless. This is a breath taking view. I have never seen this place before. The mountain is so unique and the whole landscape really impressive. I like the presence of the clouds which come in between the mountains. Asymmetry was a great idea.
Amazing colors and atmosphere.
siudzi (34141) 2012-10-10 13:31
Wow! What a superb place you have found for taking this great image. Composed perfectly with a good attention on details and elements. Well done, TFS.
adramad (45554) 2012-10-10 14:16
A stunning image with this rugged peak that rises above the rest with its rugged beauty, a fabulous composition with these snowfields alternating with green areas in the high mountains, the clouds are moving over the peaks add great charm.
Very good sharpness and perfect light.
Very well done. I love the view.
Have a nice day.
pierrefonds (66372) 2012-10-10 16:38
The distance between the road 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 bringing out the colors. Have a nice day.
delpeoples (58030) 2012-10-10 22:14
Coming from a country where our biggest mountain is about 1500 metres high, this photo leaves me in awe. The majesty of this peak is mind boggling, as its rugged beauty. I like the simplicity of the shot, it's beautifully composed, sharp and saturated. A good place to stop for a photo break. Mrs Ike must be a very patient person :)
Un caro saluto
Hellas (6945) 2012-10-10 23:03
Γεια σου Ike!
Πολύ ωραίο το τοπίο που φωτογράφησες όπως και η σύνθεση που επέλεξες να δημιουργήσεις.
Τοπία σαν κι αυτό είναι η χαρά του ορειβάτη!
Didi (60588) 2012-10-11 3:06
Nice view on the rocks with good luminosity
I note a little bit a green colour dominant but it's very simple to correct it
jhm (152860) 2012-10-11 3:44
Almost a winter picture middle of the summer.
Very nice soft contrast between the light grey clouds and the rocks of the mountains.
Perfect perspective and depth picture.
Excellent panoramic view about these area.
Nice composition, good captured. TFS.
Have a nice day,
Graal (102858) 2012-10-11 4:04

Have a nice day.
jlbrthnn (76037) 2012-10-11 7:02
The austere and severe mountain is well described in this composition. A beautiful picture of this vast landscape, clear and deep. Bravo.

raszid62 (18515) 2012-10-11 11:07
It's really beautiful winter alpine landscape. This steep rock is amazing. Clouds pass right on doing an amazing impression. Wonderful colors and sensational image quality.
הצהריים טובים. זה באמת נוף אלפיני חורף יפה. סלע תלול זה מדהים. עננים עוברים ממש על עושה רושם מדהים. צבעים נפלאים ואיכות תמונה הסנסציונית. .
fabbs99 (17167) 2012-10-11 11:54
Great shot high up in the mountains.Incredibly beautiful shot executed with a superb quality. The DOF, saturation and exposure were managed perfectly. Great work! TFS.
macjake (67748) 2012-10-11 12:59
now thats a landscape view! :)
SO when are you going to hike up that mountain...don't forget your camera :)
mother nature showing off her best assets here.
love the rugged terrain.
Wish I was here to take it myself.
CanmoreKevin (2111) 2012-10-11 19:09
Nice rugged details. well composed with the strong vertical elemnts nicely balanced by the long horizontal foreground.
ktanska (27644) 2012-10-12 3:34
There is a lot of snow for middle June! Half cloudy conditions add nice variation to light. That sharp little peak is well placed. I've visited Gd-St-Bernard from the Swiss side, and it would be interesting to go all the way some day.
chrisvek (7001) 2012-10-12 4:43
Wow.Very wonderful winter landscape with great variety of colors and so great atmosphere.Superb POV too.Nice job!
kordinator (20519) 2012-10-12 4:46
Fantastic mountain landscape.
Excellent snowy atmosphere in summer days.
Impressive colors and atmosphere.
Kind regards my friend
maria-v1981 (10932) 2012-10-12 5:51
Very appealing winter landscape with good perspective heightened by the rocks. Wonderful lighting and clarity.
Have a nice weekend,

Hi Ike !!!
I love mountains as I grew up in a mountainous region.I like the composition in this image with many elements on the two sides, front and back.
Very good exposure and sharpness.
Your trip to Italy was a great success.
By the way .... I like your Prime Minister.
UlfE (14641) 2012-10-14 0:13
A really great summer scene! Ilove the mood of it Once again excellent timing with the lighting and weather condition. The lighting on the mountain peak is perfect. TFS and have nice Sunday!
josepmarin (58357) 2012-10-14 8:48
the road of access to the Grand Saint-Bernard Pass is fantastic, its landscape is really impressive.
In this photo you give us the sight on the mountains covered by the snow, with the nice effect created by the low clouds.
It is a beautiful photo, which evokes me great memories of my two trips in that zone.
A nice work.
baddori (20133) 2012-10-14 23:22
Il San Bernardino e le Alpi più inaccessibili.
Un piccolo Himalaya.
L'impressione dell'immagine produce lo stesso fascino. Questa catena montuosa mantiene un fascino speciale.
sacavem (18620) 2012-10-16 6:32
Great shot of this fantastic landscape.A very picturesque mountain landscape.
Kielia (24077) 2012-10-16 8:16
Who can resist such a place?
What a fascinating image, especially the clouds! Very nice and natural colors, a great perspective and really very beautiful. I like your approach on this famous landscape a lot. My compliments!
clic (17077) 2012-10-16 16:05
Lot of subtlety in here convied by the low clouds competing with the fine white details on show for giving finery around the boulder so judiciously located on a tiers line.
A pleasure for my eyes.
jcpix (13930) 2012-10-17 14:55
At first glance this looks like the Matterhorn, and although not as prolific, this is still striking. The blue sky in contrast with the white snow and touch of green mountainside is quite visually appealing, and I like that the subject is off center to help give some scale to its surroundings. Nice focus and detail, well taken Ike!
jmdias (64384) 2012-10-20 2:34
perfect framing and light. I liked the effects of shadows in the compo. the peak and texture of its walls and the snow are fantastic here.
Robert1969 (7160) 2012-11-01 1:19
Beautiful surrounding (I like mountains).
The cut up and below makes the picture
wider. Composition is also v ery good
and the lower clouds makes the picture
elenimavrandoni (0) 2012-11-05 12:01
A great photographic moment!
kato (11630) 2013-05-08 18:51
You're capturing well this landscape by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's beutiful and impressive to see the alpine with snow and the steep rock surface. The thick cloud draws out an additional good atmosphere in this image.
serp2000 (44177) 2013-05-17 0:49
This is very attractive mountain composition! Impressive rock! it reminds me the photos from Swiss Alps. Excellent colors! White- grey- green- blue- brown combination is great! I have never try to make in RAW. Good quality!
NorthernLight (2383) 2013-10-10 3:19
a distinctive detail in a mountain landscape. Highlighted beautifully by the mist. Exciting and mysterious. It looks like a picture from the movie "The Lord of the Rings".
Well captured, exactly at the right moment!
Have a nice day
fritzi007 (10715) 2014-06-23 14:09
Yesterday I saw a report on the San Bernardo Pass,
really a very good photo, congratulations!

Shalom Ike! Amazing landscape. Wonderful mountain. Fantastic snow. Excellent winter scenery. Stunning view. Good take. Regards!
mcmtanyel (22568) 2016-06-22 19:27
Oh yes, snow in June! Right now, I'd like to dip my swollen feet in that snow although I know they could not last for more that half a minute. I like the cloud covered peaks in the background.
