Somewhere between Kleine Scheidegg & Wengen. Taken after two half hour into the walk from Kleine Scheidegg.
The middle peak in the background is the Monch with a partial view of the Eiger on the left and Jungfrau on the right. This photo here belongs to my Kleine Scheidegg - Wengen - Lauterbrunnen Hiking Theme. More to be added.
PS: Please see WS where I had copied & pasted the original unprocessed image on top of the processed image. Reduced opacity by 50%. I had tried to recover as much detail as I could in the highlight & shadow areas as in the main post. By reducing the PP by half it may be more realistic since the human eye may not see all that much detail in reality. Thanks for looking.

Hello Latiff ,
Your pictures from Swizerland are wonderfull . They look like paintings . This one is a loveley composition . The "chalet" , the mountains , trees , golden grass , trunks : all the elements make a relly nice shot .

Nice shot, it gives the idea of an old postcard.
I like the warm colours and the composition, with great space left to the landscape.

I assume you've done some hdr on this one. Great result, I really like the effect. Unreal mountains. Superb composition. Great colours.

a nice shot, it's a pity you didn't get the whole house, but the view is fantastic, very sharp with nice natural tones

This is nice - amazing image depth with many "layers" extending into the distance. Nice composition and colors. TFS. Gerald

This can very well be one of your best landscape views showing the layers and texture of the slopes. Very nicely composed with the hut.

belle photo de ce chalet sis au pied de ces fabuleuses montagnes.
Cette partie avec ces sapins donne un bel effet a votre photo.
Jolies couleurs , beaux glaciers, très bonne netteté de votre prise.

What a wonderful Swiss landscape shot, Latiff. The sort of photograph that you see in the coffee table books. I think I prefer the WS as it feels more 'real' - the main post has a rather over-processed look to it. But your main post looks just like a painting, so is very effective in that regard (you could frame it and fool everyone!) Cheers . . . David

It has been my lifelong dream to visit Switzerland, and your pictures from there are awesome! This scene is heavenly!! I could live in that little hut :) Beautiful color and detail. Very nice! TFS and have a happy day!

This is the most rewarding image Iv have seen of this area! The image holds perfect lighting due the overcast skies and the lighting also allows the granite to hold its definition onto the canvas. A perfect image in every way that I can see, Perfect composition...
