Description


-o§o-________ Nice to see you again! Here is a picture taken on the eve of All Saints' Day, which some people call Halloween, and others like myself call Samhain, after the Celtic festival that ushered in the dark months of the year.
________-o§o- The picture shows the Swiss Alpine peak of the Schilthorn, 2,970 meters above sea level, accessible only by foot or by cable car every day of the year. I was standing at a height of 2,677 meters, on another mountain called Birg, on a recently built observation platform where part of the floor is actually a thick pane of glass that you can walk on for a thrill, especially if you are afraid of heights!
________-o§o- The view from there was exceptional, with the Schilthorn and its revolving restaurant named Piz Gloria at the top on the one hand, and on the other, an extraordinary view of the three 4,000-meter peaks of the Bernese Alps: the Eiger, the Mönch and the Jungfrau. The light was also exceptional and very beautiful on that day...
________-o§o-Thank you so much for your comments on my latest Parisian photo, have a nice and artistic week, and stay safe...Please zoom in for more details!

Je rêve! Mon ami Karma qui nous revient avec une photo exceptionnelle! C'est tellement rare de te voir sur le site que la date mérite d'être marquée d'une croix blanche ( rires!). Ta photo est vraiment très belle : c'est vrai que la luminosité y est exceptionnelle et je t'envie d'avoir pu voir tout ça. Ton talent de photographe n'a fait que rendre ce lieu encore plus joli. Ça me fait rêver car les Alpes me manquent. Alors, merci pour la photo et le rêve Bravo!

in the CN Tower in Toronto has an area of glass floor. it was humorous watching people getting enough nerve to stand on it. the CN Tower is the tallest structure in Toronto, at least when I went there. I would love to return there again and also see a niece of mine that lives there.

very original art that you have shared. thanks

Nice to have you back for a visit my friend, you were missed! Its always a pleasure to view your awesome photographs that you take on your splendid trips. This one today is beautiful and it looks like you had a great time visiting this amazing scenic place in the Alps. I am in complete agreement with "Virginiese" on his comment above as it is becoming more rare as time passes by to see the awesome photographs shared by our friend Karma on this site. Enjoy the holidays! :-)

Que c'est bon de te voir revenir et apporter une lumière dans ce monde médiocre des galeries ! Quand on voit et regarde une photo comme la tienne, que l'on ne vienne pas me dire que la montagne n'est pas ce qu'il y a de plus beau au monde ! 2970 m ? Ça va, je peux encore y grimper mais je flirterais avec "l'interdit" des 3000 ! Le petit lac, sur la droite, me fait penser au lac de l'Ane, sous le grand Pic de Belledonne que l'on atteint depuis la route allant vers le Col de la Croix de Fer...tu devrais venir dans nos coins aussi !

Wow, superbe vue, la luminosité et le talent du photographe nous offre une merveille de la natures, les montagnes de hautes altitudes m’ont toujours fascinées. Merci de mettre en valeur ces beautés si proche de chez moi et de partager cette très belle prise de vue !!

Great capture of these very rugged mountains...the light is perfect. Not too sure I'd venture on to that glass floor :)

I think I would have to take the cable-car, climbing that by foot looks rough.

That is a rugged peak! The observation platform must be like the one at the Grand Canyon! I wouldn't want to try it!
