Another photo from my Swiss journey showing a view of snow covered roofs of Villars-sur-Ollon.
The Swiss holiday resort of Villars-sur-Ollon in the heart of the Vaud Alps is situated at 1300m a.s.l. on a sunny south-facing terrace high above the Rhone valley.
It enjoys breathtaking views of the Dents-du-Midi and the Mont Blanc massif and as far as Lake Geneva.

Charming view of the city under snow. But I am no more envious, I also have snow on my street and soon I will complain that I have to shovel. One is never happy :). Nice shot.
Warm regrads Malgo

One thing that strikes me in many of these mountain towns and resorts is how the man made objects, the buildings and all the architecture seems to blend so nicely into the landscape. I guess its that the buildings are wooden, so fit well to a part forested place, but it always makes me think how beautiful parts of the world can be when created with consideration and thought.
This is a wonderful winter scene, and is making me crave some snow, which we have seen none of in Ireland this year. I always appreciate a scene with a town spread across a mountain, and I rarely see it as a snow scene, so this is all the more beautiful to me!
Thanks as always

Marvelous view of this swiss town in winter from your well chosen high POV. The white snow on the roof all the buildings has created a inform colour scheme and design across the frame. I like the way the city has grown up on the slopes of the mountain. Excellent colours, clarity and light. Thanks for sharing.

a beautiful capture here. Love the textures of the roofs with the colourful presence in such snow-white surroundings. Great composition. Nicely presented with perfect light and good depth. Superb one. Tfs.

the place looks beautiful,but I have impression that this lovely,warm light makes it even more picturesque.
Superb perspective and magnificent combination of soft light and well saturated colors make the shot spectacular.
Have a nice day

J'aime beaucoup ce plan serré sur la ville. La neige joue un beau rôle d'égalisateur avec tout ce blanc sur les toits. . L'ensemble est d'une belle netteté et jouit d'une très belle lumière.

abmdsudi (45704) 2014-01-16 8:54
Looks like you got a fair amount of snow on the roof there, a perfect combination of coldness, some lovely bright warm light and colours to draw attentions too.
Indeed a beautiful town scene with excellent depth enough to keep the eye busy and words that match it perfectly. Well done, Congrats

Many hotels all facing south towards the sun, Miro.
Well employed all of picture space with the shining houses and buildings, white covered and majestic view on.

un paesaggio pienamente invernale, del resto, siamo in inverno e, soprattutto, siamo in Svizzera, direi che va tutto bene.
Mi piace la luce calda e diffusa, crea una bella atmosfera.
jmdias (58163) 2014-01-16 15:48
excellent view of this village with nice light. the image has many details and we can enjoy the winter mood and the architecture too. TFS.

Oh, I like this concept of using a tight frame to bring out the detail and color under this snow covered scene. It truly is a delightful mixture of natural and man made elements, compacted into one fine image where there's much to scan over and enjoy from the view. For my personal tastes, I love the multitude of shapes and straight edges, like a giant 3D puzzle almost, so many interesting little details hidden within the overall framework. The soft touch of what appears to be warm sunlight sets a soothing tone, for what would be a nice place to spend some time both indoors and out. :) Enjoy the day ahead.

nice view of city in the Alps under the snow and winter season. Good shot from fine POV. Your web page is interesting also. I like it.
Have a nice day.
kato (11630) 2014-01-17 5:16
You're capturing well this scape by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see a lot of houses of a triangular roof built on the slope of the snowy mountain. You managed well the whole by bright tone, although the outside is covered snowfall. And, it's also impressive in trees not covering to snowfall.

a very attractive and interesting view that fills the frame with characteristic architectural patterns and has a fine rhythm. You have considered carefully the cropping of your photo and your composition looks really elegant. I thing that the whites are just a little too bright but this doesn't compromise the clarity the view, the lovely warm tones and the agreeable atmosphere. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely weekend,

The roofs covered with snow are an eye catcher. The point of view is showinf the détails and the colors of the buildings. The good luminosity is making the colors to stand out. Have a nice day.

adramad (39770) 2014-01-20 7:50
Splendid POV on all these buildings, which form the central core, at least I guess ..... population of this mountain, all covered with beautiful snow, the trees between the buildings add great charm among both cement.
Very good brightness and sharpness, with beautiful colors.
Well done. I Like
Have a nice day and week.

Belle présentation de la ville sous une très belle lumière, intéressante architecture d'un mélange de chalets de bâtiments avec les toits soupoudrer de neige, belle réalisation
nikkitta (16230) 2014-01-20 13:22
I think that the atractive of your picture is given by the golden light contrasting with the white snow covering the roofs
Having here +39 degrees is a refreshing view
Well done, congrats
fabbs99 (16813) 2014-01-23 7:16

Salut cher Miro
I like the tight framing here and the warm colours contrast beautifully with the white snow on the roofs. It's amazing that they can build houses and apartments here, I would be worried about them sliding down the hill.
Warmest wishes, thanks for sharing
