Getting up to the peak of Mount Rigi is not difficult - suitable for people of all ages. Just take a rack railway up to the top station of Rigi Kulm (1800M) from Vitznau or Arth-Goldau on the shore of Lake Luzern. From the station it is only a 15 minute walk to the peak. Magnificent views from up there. The elderly couple in the photo is only a few steps to the summit which is about the same level as the resting hiker. Rigi is also referred to as The Queen of Swiss Mountains.

Hi Latiff, this is good. At first I thought you were going to tell us the resting hiker was the Queen. Very nice perspective in this shot of yours, over the hiker, but looking at the two older people. The other mountain with clouds in the background make an excellent backdrop. Great colour and clarity throughout.

I Like your POV as a kind of spectator looking through the woman. Sharpness could be increased a little but the light is superb.

A compelling composition — the sun worshipper approached by the elderly couple, snuggled in warm clothes. The note, succinct but informative, is useful.
