what happened with houses?
Believe it or not, no one in Walenstadt was injured. There was damage to the forest and some houses. This occured in 2003.
WOW what a shot !
Strangely enough, such a powder avalanche should have blown away everything all around. But maybe it involved from one part the collapse of the (right portion) summit cornice - more hard and compact - together with powder snow stratas on the other part, laid on the middle ledge, thus giving a mixed type between winter and spring avalanches. But the shot is first class !
I'll ask my friend (who lives there).
Wow what great timing for a shot.
timing and picture! Amazing! Scary!
Avalanche shots are always impressive, but this one is one of the best I've seen.
Why this didn't make photo of the week I don't know. I almost feel the roar.
.... great shot! I already saw a lot of avalanche fotos, also from the Himalayas and the Andes, but this one is special, because the proximity of the human settlement to the big cloud makes it really looking scary and mighty.
This one would really deserve to be foto of the week.
at the right time! My compliments.
I've been there in the neighbourhood quite some times and I know the difference between the altitude on which the avalanche begins and the altitude on which it ends: it must be over 1500 metres!
Great, great shot! Many Compliments.
Great shot !
It happened really. Ohh you did a great job.
Thanks for sharing your pic.
