Photographer's Note

View from a mountain to the bottom of Gail valley. This valley is a typical U-shaped valley, with a flat, 2 km broad bottom. U-shaped valleys are made by glaciers in the ice age, V-shaped valleys are made by rivers instead.

I took it with 300mm from the lower part of the "U".

Thanks to Livia I discovered the landscapes of Mario Giacomelli, a master of this genre. Here you see some other examples.
