Barrhorn by TobiasRichter Barrhorn by TobiasRichter
The first rays of the rising sun are touching the peaks of the Swiss Alps. This shot shows the rising sun just below the mountain top of the 3610-meter high Üsseren Barrhorn (left). It also offers a view stretching from the mountain peaks of the Bernese Oberland and the Aletsch area all the way to the Rhone Valley and the very first peaks of the Mischabel Mountain Range.

This picture is just simply gorgeous. It's nice and clear, and everything just seems placed ever - so - perfectly! The sun adds a gorgeous lighting to the rocks, and you can see the rays of sunlight reaching over the mountaintops.

Another thing I really like about this picture is how you can see on and on into the distance. I love the clouds in the background because they are so much lower down than you. It helps show how high up you really are. Being up so high can make you feel unstoppable and great, which is a good feeling that this picture happens to give someone viewing it!

I can't find anything negative to say about this picture, honestly. I really love it.

Amazing job, and keep up the good work! ^^

A timeless composition whose unusual features could bring the observer to think that this is a landscape from some fantasy world.
