Moving from west to east, from Vaud Alps to Grison Alps in Swiss Canton Graubuenden. Grison is English name for this mountain region. Graubenden is famous for fabulous alpine valleys descending from high mountains, rivers in every conceivable direction and three languages,German, Romansh and Italian in a single canton. St. Moritz, Davos, Arosa, Klosters, Lenzerheide, just few names of famous places located in Graubuenden.
An excellent place for summer and winter holidays.

A very beautiful snowy winter scene. Staying in the Indian plains I do not see snow at all, so this photo is all the more attractive and enjoyable to me. I like the way you have hidden the strong sun behind this tree, yet used it to bring out the details in the snow. Great control over exposure to take this photo with that amount of snow. Excellent photo thanks for sharing.

Piles of real snow and the title is aptly illustrated in this shot, another excellent snowy landscape being there surrounded by deep cold but it's cheery
atmosphere bathed by sunny warm light. Full of brilliant tones, colours and blues sky nicely framed from low pov emphasising more on the foreground.
The star burst effect is superb addition. Well done, Congrats

I see also not the big winter in Switzerland, but you shows a very nice winter sight with the dark trees in background as contrast.
Excellent nice quality and lovely presentation of the blue sky.
Very well done, TFS.

one more nice snowy environment with the with the foor of the house to just be seen under the fallen snow.I like the beauty of the place with the tree to be placed perfect in the frame, with the beams of the sun to be one of the eye catching of the image.

Rien de plus beau qu'une neige qui vient juste de tomber et un ciel bleu pour l'accompagner. Un très beau contre jour, bien réussi avec le soleil qui tente de percer l'arbre.

You're capturing well this this alpine valley by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the beautiful winter spectacle with the deep snowfall, winter trees and mountain slope. It's also effective for the shade on snow. And, it harmonizes well with blue sky.
Miguel82 (27674) 2014-01-21 6:19
You captured perfectly the sun in that fir tree creating a star, excellent light, a thick layer of snow, beautiful scenery, thanks, see you
willperrett (10609) 2014-01-21 6:21
Difficult lighting conditions, with a contre-jour shot in a bright snowy landscape. So you've done well to control the exposure (I suspect you've over-ridden the camera's own meter settings). Probably the polarizer helped. Lovely pristine scene, and excellent composition.
ikeharel (70795) 2014-01-21 7:13
position with the sun behind the tree is a good idea for the scene, Miro.
The fresh snow get a superb light, yet, the backlight handled well.
Amazing white shine and contrast to blue sky and green trees.
subhendu_bagchi (26089) 2014-01-21 7:24
it is a real beauty. You showed everything possible in this white paradice. The light is tough to managed but done successfully. Great to see the snow covered land and cottages. The sun-blast is superb through the tree at right side top. Excellent work. Tfs.

Hi Miro, I like this good picture of this pretty winter beautifully captured in this beautiful image with good sharpness, light and color. Very good and interesting job well done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.
Good night and happy week.
Warm greetings from southern Spain.
aleXundar (1256) 2014-01-21 10:20
Wonderful snow-scape in a sunny afternoon. The low pov worked great with a very good sun-burst. Very elegant composition and excellent colors. I like the light treatment too.
Kamilutka (8105) 2014-01-21 10:27
very classic winter photo with all its charm and immaculate composition. The road has been placed in the photo at the very right angle and the small wooden house adds some interest to the landscape without disturbing it. But the best part of the image is the light, especially the sun captured so nicely in between the branches.
Thanks for sharing
ourania (45088) 2014-01-21 12:49
there's a very delightful clarity and smoothness in this view, a fine harmony of lines, lighting variations and colours. I like very much the softness of the shadows and the moderate brightness of the sunlit areas and details. It's great how homogeneity and harmony is playfully interrupted by the rough mass of snow in the foreground and by the sun winking through the foliage. I love the fresh and cheerful atmosphere. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,

a spectacular view to this snowy
landscape with a very very thick
snow carpet I love this strong
sunlight liek a star passing
through the branchew of the tree
so sweet so delicate composition
I loved this place and the greatest
beauty is also the tree placed
into the framing
saxo042 (37876) 2014-01-21 14:13
A fantastic winter landscape! This is what winter should be, sunshine and a few degrees below freezing point. This is a very sharp and detailed picture and it is also perfectly composed. The sun shining through the tree makes it look like a big Christmas tree. A very beautiful and pleasant view!
jmdias (64026) 2014-01-21 15:39
nice use of the light here. the snow in the ground looks like a small cloud. nice details of this landscape, here we are facing a heat wave. TFS.
jcpix (13916) 2014-01-21 18:19
This is a wonderful, stripped down version of winter. The deep snow pretty much tells the entire story, it's some of natures fines and most beautiful handy work....well, before it melts and becomes dirty. :) This is really a pristine depiction of the season, and the way you've played with the spot of sunlight bursting through the pines is simply the cherry on top to further the magic of this lovely scene. That small portion of chalet just over the ridge lets us know there's life to be had here. Plain and simple, nothing more required...this is the way it should be! Have a great day ahead my friend.
All the best,
fabbs99 (17165) 2014-01-21 21:11
Lovely composition from the Alps.Grand view from this view point.Truly very sharp and crisp.Very well captured with good lighting.Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.
adramad (45386) 2014-01-22 7:07
A wonderful composition, this fully winter landscape, fantastic POV, this accumulation of snow we see in the foreground ideal decomposition of sunlight in a star, we see through fir.
Very nice colorful tones very effective in this beautiful day.
Good management of light and good sharpness for full details.
Have a nice day.
All the best.
mcmtanyel (22216) 2014-01-22 7:16
The sun shining through the pine tree is like the angel on top of a Christmas tree. Beautiful view of the deep snow which the skiers must love.
Cricri (118917) 2014-01-22 10:11
Très joli ce coté de la Suisse, un jour de beau temps, qui fait briller la neige, bien composer avec les arbres blancs et l'éclat de lumière derrière le sapin, très jolie présentation
Nicou (141248) 2014-01-23 5:32
toutes ces paillettes qui brillent quelle iamge et la rouge quelle belle couche de neige et la végétation recouverte la belle luminosité splendide vue.
Bravo et amitié
pierrefonds (65904) 2014-01-26 17:13
I like the effect of the light on the snow with the blue sky. The point of view is showing the details and the colours of the winter scenery. Well done, have a nice day.
eldancer1 (36343) 2014-01-26 21:14
Beautiful capture of this winter scene and it look so cold! Good lighting and sharp details even the snow which I find hard to do. Well done, tfs.

Nice winter view.
Excellent composition, light and shadows.
I like it.
Have a nice day
williamcoombs1 (363) 2014-02-01 10:43
This evokes superbly a precise time of day in the winter! That low winter sun and the snow, plowed or left to sit on the hillside, and the lines of trees - this is beautifully composed.
claudeD (38436) 2014-02-03 10:17

This is another one I'm really fond of!
All those winter details are so appealing to me and you photographed them in such a lovely and beautiful way!
Sharpness, management of light, colors, horizontal format, chosen pov and composition are all excellent!
The starry-like sunlight is a true highlight on the right top corner of this image!
TFS - congrats,
