Re: Amazing

Thanks. I must admit that I readjusted the sharpness a little. I usually shrink my pictures to 1024 x n and this blurs them. I never know if the amount of sharpening I apply afterwards is correct. With this picture I would probably have said it was too little. Tells how differently we view the world ...

Fantastic shot

You've caught Piz Buin from its most beautiful side. I can't find the proper words to express my admiration. Bravo Gangolf and thanks for posting!

Re: Fantastic shot

You're absolutely right about the most beautiful side. I'm very happy we actually did this hike to the Furcletta Saddle if only because of the views towards these mountains. While hiking I thought differently (see TR if you haven't already done so).

Actually from this side Piz Buin looks a bit like the little brother of your favourite Monte Agner. Little though it is much higher ;-)

Re: What a photo!

Yes, aren't they? But you can't capture in a photo the emotion you feel when you have just struggled up to a saddle and see this. That's why we go to the mountains ourselves, isn't it?

Re: Outstanding

Yes it is. But I must say that I like you profile pic of Crestone Needle just as much.
