Description


_______ Here's a photo I took earlier this month in the Swiss Alps, more particularly in the Jungfrau region, called the Bernese Oberland.This is the place where the highest summits of the country are visible in a single 360-degree view, from places like Männlichen, where I was standing and taking the photo, not far from this bunch of 'Milka'cows here in the foreground.
_______ The Jungfrau in the background is towering above the Männlichen high plateau that you can reach through an impressive cable car from Wengen, where international skiing competitions are held in the winter season. In only fifteen minutes, you reach the altitude of 2,200 meters and then you can face the three Swiss alpine giants : the legendary Eiger- 3,967-meters (13,015 ft), the Mönch - 4,107 meters (13,474 ft) and the Jungfrau -4,158 meters (13,642 ft).
_______ The pyramid-shaped mountain to the right, with its fully-covered summit is the Silberhorn (3,695 m or 12,123 ft)), meaning 'Silver horn or peak' in English, a mountain that inspired J.R.R. Tolkien in his trilogy 'The Lord of the Rings'. The Silberhorn in Tolkien's writings was renamed the 'Celebdil', one of the three mountains bordering and overlooking the Moria, the Middle-Earth.
_______Thank you so much for your nice comments about my previous Swiss post, have a nice week and take care, while zooming in for more details ...

Wow, what a breath-taking view! The cattle look so carefree and nonchalant about how wonderful their surroundings are. Thank you so much for sharing your photo and the interesting info.

What a beautiful place, with the spectacular mountains in the background behind the cows serenely resting in the meadow. Fantastic shot!

Merveilleuse photo mais, si je puis me permettre, il est dommage que tu aies coupé le sommet du...sommet...de gauche...c'est un détail qui n'enlève pas grand-chose à ces beautés. Je persiste à penser que tu devrais venir voir nos merveilles un de ces jours...

Une photo sublime de ces merveilleuse montagnes et des vaches en premier plan, un bel hommage à la Suisse ! Merci pour les infos, j’ignorais que Tolkien s’en était inspiré pour le Seigneur des Anneaux c’est très intéressant.... superbe réalisation !!

Une vue impressionnante d'une montagne intimidante! Ça donne l'impression qu'à cause de sa neige si abondante, une avalanche peut soudainement se déclencher puis se diriger tout droit vers le photographe.

You are a sensational photographer. The framing of this beautiful tribute to Mother Natures sculpting abilities is truly awesome. The mountain is framed perfectly against the greenery of the lower high country. Beautiful job !!!
