A weekend well spent, skiing in the bernese alps at Mürren. On a beautiful and sunny January day, the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau, three of the most famous peaks in the Swiss alps glow in the sun across the Lauterbrunnen valley. The Schilthorn from where we are looking down is a superb skiing mountain with a restaurant at the top that swivels around its own axis in a one hour tour.

Salut Daniel ,
Une vue fantastique des trois célèbres sommets de l'Oberland , avec un superbe éclairage latéral qui crée de beaux contrastes . Et une piste toute vide qui invite à s'élancer .

Attractive and inviting picture! I love skiing, but it's always difficult for a brazilian to go to a place like that!
Special regards to the exposure, colors, chosen pov and composition!
Enjoy your week,

I'm not a skier myself, and I'm originally from Salt Lake City...crazy, huh? I can sure appreciate the fun however from a sportive activity, and even more so from a place I've actually been fortunate to visit as well. Mürren is beautiful, and you've provided an excellent view of the mountain range. In fact, you've even helped placed us right on the slope with this perspective of being on the ski run itself. Looks like it was a perfect day, and what better way to spend it than doing something you enjoy....and you got both, skiing and some photos! :) Thanks for sharing this kind of view, impressive! Enjoy the new week.

Hello Daniel - What a perfect day to be out on the mountains, the light gives your shot excellent clarity and the details are very finely captured. I've never been skiing but this shot gives me a good idea of why people flock to the snowy landscapes..... now if I were younger.... hmmm! Very attractively managed shot. Take care Rosemary

hello Daniel, I think that not only I am envious you had such a wonderful weekend. Woow, I would love to be there and see this gorgeous view. I do not ski unfortunately :(. Such fantastic conditions, snow, sun, and where are the people?? I just stare in amazement.

Tu nous emmènes aux sports d'hiver avec cette belle piste à dévaler tranquillement pour admirer la montagne sauvage. Le bout de la piste est semblable à une scène encerclée par les montagnes qui forment un décor grandiose. La lumière incidente accentue le relief sur la partie droite de l'image. Ca donne envie !

I always admire people who can ski, as I cannot - falling down a mountain whilst wearing skis doesn't count, does it ;) Anyway, what a wonderful weekend and a beautiful photo taken from a POV that makes me feel dizzy. Nice work and good play of light and shade.

I've stood in almost exactly the same spot, but this was at the height of Summer, when the peaks were still snow-bound but the rest of the scene was grass and rock. You have been lucky with the weather, and the bright sun has allowed you to create a lovely and iconic scene.

I am not great on heights, especially mountains so skiing never really appealed to me much, but I must admit, youl could change my mind easily with this post! What a beautiful place. The sun has created such an interesting array of shadows across the mountains, and the light looks warm and inviting, a great contrast to the cold feel of the snow. I can now imagine zipping down that slope in front of your camera.
What a beautiful blue sky too, it has the tones of a shot taken near space!
Thanks as always

quelle vue sur ces trois fameux sommets sueprbe quelle pureté totale des alpes et le ciel plus que limpide, sueprbe vue très bien vu le télésli en bas à gauche spelndide cpatage.

What magnificent peaks, beautiful and clean image so crisp and sharp in brill light & colours. The tiny figs and the chalets are vital elements and this benefits from that feature by emphasizing the beautiful form of these monsters and the blue sky adding so much to the overall impression as if the 'stones' seem to be looking over you! You've really captured the majesty really well, Congrats.

Ciao Daniel, fascinating mountain landscape, excellent clarity, splendid light and wonderful colors, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio

Indeed! I wouldn't mind spending a whole day or more on this beautiful snow-covered mountain, I wish we get more snow in Las Vegas. Good lighting and sharp details. Well done, tfs.

oh wow/...what a place.amazing.just love the pov and the mountains.
macjake (49328) 2014-02-02 4:08
I guess people don't go to Switzerland for the Ocean views :)
People come to this country for views like this.
and since you live here, i bet you can see this almost anytime you have the time!
lovely scene, which i bet is even more impressive in person. The mountains seem so close to the skier.
Sorry to hear about your son.

en effet les week end à la neige ressourcent bien, de l'air pur, un beau paysage, du soleil, de la glisse et tout tout...

A wonderful view of the snowy Bernese Alps. The low sunlight picks out every detail of the mountains. From here we can see how steep the north face of the Eiger is.
