Taken during a walk in the Rigi Mountain. The stretch from Rigi Kulm to Rigi Scheidegg offers a panoramic view of the lakes and surrounding mountains but on this day the floating clouds have affected visibility somewhat. The path is well marked and it is on the former mountain railway track. It also includes a passage through an old railway tunnel with no light but assisted by natural light at the beginning and end. The middle of tunnel can be a bit scary since you can see nothing but only for a very short distance. An easy, pleasant, and scenic walk for the most part.

Beautiful mountain scenery. The blurry background makes me think that you are on a really high point and inside the cloud :) I like those cute houses scattered around. Nice capture!
Have a good week,

Hello Latiff ,
I like a lot this mountain landscpae , so typically swiss . Despite of the foggy weather , the picture is very pleasant , with the little huts and fir tees in the green meadows .

Your composition and POV are nice giving us an overview of this mountain scene. The fog helps set the mood for the shot. The muted lighting and colors are fine as is the sharpness and detail.

A very well composed photo with the rolling hills and rows of conifers shrouded by the morning fog. The two houses in the FG are well positioned. Look forward to seeing in KL next month.
