The summit of the Jungfrau from the village of Wengen at early evening. About half an hour later I was rewarded by a glimpse of the Alpenglow posted here some time ago. Along with the Aletsch Glacier to the south, the Jungfrau is part of the Jungfrau-Aletsch area, which was declared a World Heritage Site in 2001.

Yes, I well remember your beautiful photograph of the "Alpenglow" and commented upon it at the time. But, looking back at it, I think I actually prefer this photograph which, somehow, is much more spectacular.
The light on the snow on the mountains is stunning and contrasts well with the near slope which is in relative shade. Yet we still se smatterings of light on that slope too, picking out the details and textures in its higher parts. And the mist clinging to the mountains is beautiful.
A stunningly beautiful photograph with fabulous light and colours, perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness.

glorious shot of this "young lady". The light is just right and you have controlled it superbly. The clouds caressing the summits adds atmosphere and that little bit of Swiss magic to this fine image. A wonder!
Enjoy the week ahead - B.

I would agree with John in that I prefer this shot to the earlier one,somehow it has just a little more mountain magic about it.
Spectacular scenery is probably an understatement,nicely done.

Magnificient view of Jungfrau on warm toned evening light. Palette of shades goes from dark rocks in shadow to snowfields in sunshine. Background sky with impressive clouds looks great too.

C'est un paysage de montagne parfaitement cadré et ici une très bonne lumière chaude met en valeur ces sommets à l'arrière plan de l'image.Une réalisation nette et parfaitement exposée.

Magnificent landscape and great shot. I like this wider view slightly (but only slightly) more than the previously posted one. I love the clouds clinging to the mountains, their colour is just perfect.

Amazing snow mountain peaks so skillfully captured with the immaculate detail all round, indeed a rewarding view and we are treated to some remarkable catchy low warm light. A good combination of contrasting colours, shades and subtle shadows of visual value. This image renders a breathtaking frosty view in this wonderful composition. You have done well to get such a stunning shot, a remarkable chilly hi-altitude shot. Well done

This is a great shot with terrific light. I love the light and shade and backdrop of the blue cloudy sky.
annjackman (18453) 2014-08-20 8:49
Love everything about this. The evening sun really gives the mountain a warm glow despite being snow-capped! The low clouds shrouding part of the mountain makes it perfect for me. Great sharpness and shadow detail.
Kind Regards, Ann
