I did say to a fellow TE'er that I had some spectacular mountain scenes to post and here is the first of a few.
I cut our day snowboarding short this day and went up the Aguille Du Midi cable car at a height of 3840m specifically to capture this scene which we had been enjoying all day.
Switzerland's border starts somewhere where the valley snakes off into the distance.
By the way, Chamonix is under that blanket of cloud and remained like that all day.

Cela me rappelle une photo que j'ai prise recemment, relative à une mer de nuages... Très belle profondeur de champ et belle netteté. On note une courbure de l'horizon. Très bonne restitution des blancs et une exposition de choix. D'ailleurs quels sont les paramètres d'exposition?

Hi Matthew - What a stunning view; the light is catching the peaks so beautifully and the cloud lies so thickly in the valleys it looks almost solid. Nive diagonal composition with great clarity and contrast. Best regards Rosemary

i have been there last summer coming from italy by cableway. in this shot the low cloud is very nice and the view is breathtaking, the edges of the mountains emerging from the clouds are great.

Qu'elles sont belles les textures de ces crêtes à l'arrière plan sous cet éclairage latéral.
