Photo of colorful Gruyeres welcome board located on the town entry road.
The medieval town of Gruyeres is an important tourist location in the upper valley of the Saane River, and gives its name to the well-known high quality Gruyere cheese. It is located 186km southwest from Zurich and 65km south from Bern.
Gruyères is resting at an altitude about 810 m above sea level, 4.5 km south-south-east of the district capital Bulle. The historical town is placed on top of an isolated hill north of the Alps, in the foothills of mount Moleson. It is also the location where the Saane River leaves the Fribourg Alps.
It is located 186km southwest from Zurich and 65km south from Bern.

A nice colorful welcome for tourists to this place, the ad seems to cover many different angles and is a very happy picture. Well, all except that train which looks a little bit evil :)
All the best

Green nature environ sights are pure treasures to enjoy, such a wonderful place represented by this friendly and pleasing welcoming signboard with nice ref of location. You just showed us all how friendly it could be. Indeed a highly catchy vivid stuff looks appealing to photographer and hard to miss with attractive contrast to the lush green background and the warm colours in this gives it a 'closed' feel. Good catch Miro, very informative and interesting well put together, Congrats.

the welcome board is attractive and funny, your picture of it has superb sharpness and colour definition. The natural backdrop/ framing is a fine idea and adds a different kind of vibrancy to that of the board. The play of light in the foliage is very nice. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely evening,

First thing to come to mind is cheese! :) I've only passed through the region...but my recollection is, that like the rest of the country, it's gorgeous! I love the animation from this board, it's not often we see something this light hearted...but it's a good example of the simple, every day things which can make for an interesting photo. It's bright, colorful and I'm sure takes us all back to our childhoods, if only for a brief moment in passing. It made me smile when I saw it, so "thumbs up" from me. :) Have a great day ahead. Take good care.

Excelent clarity and vivid colors collected, on this roadside-sign that except for the Chocolate made in Switzerland - every other tourist attraction exist in your beautifuil country, already shown; The train, ski, cows, knights and castles and the green pastures.
Fine collected shot, cheers.
