une très belle vue sur les montagnes et le lac d'altitude.
Bonne idée de cadrage avec les vaches et le promeneur en avant plan

Belle photo de ce lac de montagne, avec quelques plaques de neige qui nous donne de la fraicheur, une cascade qui se verse dans le lac et en prime les vaches. On a plus l'habitude de les voir sur du vert.

Hello Kari ,
Typical swiss cows and walkers ; in the Fg of the beautiful Oeschinensee / But it seems that its level was very low at this time .

hello Kari, We have sheep in Tatra mopuntains, I saw horses looking wild in Dolomites, here the cows looking like on Milka chocolate. Magnificent view, with small cascade. What a place for hiking. it could be even without gondola. marvelous colour of the lake.

Hi dear Kari
What a pretty view for these lucky Milka cows. The depth is so good here, I can account for even the furthest crag on that mountain. You did really well in the harsh sunlight and really captured the character and immaculate beauty of this country.
Have a good week and thanks for your kind words on MH17, we are all in shock and many of us know a family who was lost in the crash

Those cows looks very healthy and I guess they deserved to enjoy the beach as well. Awesome landscape, nicely captured with sharp details. Well done, tfs.

The reddish brown coats of the cows contrast well against the cyan coloured lake in the bg. Good sharpness and saturation. The majestic mountains in the bg with snow on the upper peaks make a superb backdrop. The waterfalls add interest. Tfs!

so these cows are just wild, walking around the lake like this?
I've gotta say, I've never really seen cows in a setting like this before.
beautiful backdrop, but the cows steal the show :)

amazing the presence of these cows in this fabulous small lake. I liked the colors of the waters and the contrast of them with the color of the cows. many details to enjoy. excellent image.
