Photographer's Note

One very nice July evening we had a genuine dinner at the terrace of Hotel "Bären" in Wilderswil, on the outskirts of Interlaken - well-known center of the Jungfrau Region - in the part of the Bernese canton known as Berner Oberland.

Making a short visit to our room - before going on an evening stroll with the car - I leaned out the window to have a look at the Jungfrau massif, one of the most beautiful group of mountains in Europe. At this moment I saw the whole ridge "painted" in red by the last rays of the setting sun - I believe the locals call this "Alpenglüh" [glowing alps] - grabbed my camera and threw away a couple of shots, knowing the briefness of the moment.

When we drove away five minutes later the colors are gone and darkness is falling.

The massif consists of these three spectacular peaks - from left to right - Eiger [the Hunter] 3970m (partly blocked), Mönch [the Monk] 4109m and Jungfrau [the Virgin] 4158m.
