I do like it...

... a lot. This kind of alpine landscape is always nice to look at.
Forget about Holland, move to France ! ;o)

Re: I do like it...

Thank a lot! Yeah I think you may be right! Holland is great, but for me as mountain-lover I really was born in the wrong country:P the highest peak 'We' have is an amazing 350meters high haha

Great picture ...

... of a great wall.

I really like the contrast of those colors changing from blue, over white into olive and strong green.

This mountains northface is a challenge for every mountaineer.

But not only for mountaineers: just some weeks ago a German-military Tornado-jet chrashed into the face during a training-flight. Impact was where the rocky triangle can be seen right in the middle of the image between both ice faces. The pilot died, the 2nd pilot could escape by shooting himself out of the plane before the impact. His parachute got stuck somewhere in the rocks and he got rescued.
The face was burning from Kerosine for some hours after the impact and you could see the parts of the plane spreaded around the glacier below.

Whooo!

This picture really gives a good impression of the steepness and cold conditions in the faces. The picture most be taken after a bad weather period? The snow has a perfect white colour, and the grass is very green :-)
