Taken on a walk in Mt. Rigi. A fine walk offering grand views of the "Lake of the Four Forest Cantons", distant mountains, meadows, beautiful Swiss cottages, farm houses etc. At some point along the well maintained path you might have a taste of fresh milk and cheese at an unattended stall ... just drop your Swiss Franc in the jar. It's really a pleasant walk ... sometimes into drifting clouds, and above clouds ... depending on the weather I guess.

La Suisse est la pays que j'ai visité qui me laisse les plus beaux souvenirs et cette photo très typique, me replonge facilement dans ces moments d'extase que j'ai connus en foulant le sol helvète.
Superbe couleurs et bon rendu de la brume qui enveloppe les sommets.

Once again a very beautiful photo!I like the two cows in foreground and those clouds covering the top of the mountains in background. Good colours and dof!

this is a true pastoral image the so close to the illustartions that we sometimes see in those booklets that's given by ex, Jehovas wittneses or other sekts desrcibing the Paradise, this is said as a complement it's really Heavenly pitoresqe, a cliché the only thing missing is Baron Von Trapp

nice composition with splendid colors and an excellent dof. Switzerland is certainly a country that lends itself well to photography! And I just love the Rigi. I lived near there many, many years ago while my Dad (civil engineer) built an apartment complex up there. He *really* loved going to work in this beautiful area and you've captured it wonderfully!
Thanks for the memories!

Very colorful and funny alpine scene! I like colors and softness of the background. Nice moment, it brings a thought about chocolate to me!

what a wonderful scenary. You have managed the light in a way that makes me think I'm there...I really like that feature, great job on the compo and post-processing!

This is a very nice shot. I loved the texture of sunshine which is kinda romantic and pleasant and the dramatic clouds far away in the sky. Cows and Switzerland.....you have captured the right mood.

Good pov to show the grazing grounds, beautiful and natural environment cover with greenery plants, but more interesting are herds, so fat just eating grasses and no need go for ploughing, thanks for sharing the relaxing view.

It looks like the cattle are enjoying a better life than us here with perfect air, cool temperature, good food(good to them)and picturesque landscape---provided that they don't get slaughtered.
I like the converging sloping terrain dotted with these lucky cattles. Wonderful work

Nice pastoral scene here. I like the use of the wider end of the lens, as it makes the pasture seem never-ending. Switzerland must be a beautiful place to visit. Nice job.
