The high alpine meadows are full of flowers at this time of year and the Schynige Platte has a wonderful high level alpine garden with great views over the surrounding peaks, including the Eiger.
Difficult lighting as quite hazy and the light coloured rocks of the background mountains make it difficult to balance exposure with the foreground. Used Photoshop to adjust contrast and the midrange brightness values. Also slightly decreased brightness in the 'blue' channel to bring out the green fields a bit more.

Idée très bonne. Les fleurs font un écran joli pour les montagnes et les prés spectaculaires qui sont derrière vus.

I love the angle of this shot. It looks like a painting! Well done,

A very beautiful sight and a good composition. Good DOF too. I like the contrast of the dark bottom part and the high exposed mountains. Well done.

Great composition. I also like the colors of the flowers and meadows. I know what you mean about the haze, as I've had some pics messed up by that as well. But never mind that as you still ended up with a great shot!

Beautiful composition and soft colors. Excellent photo. It makes me want to be there, running through the meadow. Greetings from USA, Herbert
