Re: What a beauty!

it was taken from Nebelhorn, just before starting Hindelanger Klettersteig ferrata - and of course with a close-up lens

Re: Yowza!

the original picture is a slide. After scanning I raised the contrast a bit and cut some parts of the picture so it is more than the original 200mm close-up.

It's like something...

coming out of a dream! Those who have never witnessed the wonders of the mountains would never believe this can be real. Thanks for sharing it, Mathias

Truly Amazing...

I agree that it definitely has a dreamlike quality...I plan to visit this area next spring and wonder what month the mountain opens for hiking...this photo reminds me alot of a dawn shot I took from inside the Grand Canyon looking east a few years ago...not nearly as awesome as this one tho (http://www.summitpost.org/image/202889/A-Hazy-Dawn.html)
