The land of my ancestors, I am partly Appenzellerin :-)
While on one side of these hills it becomes pre-alpine, on the other it is gently "rolling down". This was a lovely evening with people from my work, while some were playing games inside the restaurant, others were simply enjoying this view with a glass of wine standing together outside. In Switzerland it has many restaurants in the Alps where you can also sleep overnight. Usually nothing fancy but a lot of fun. It is always a pleasure going hiking with this group. The evenings are long, the hikes even longer, the head heavy from the night before ... and the feet with blisters by the time we go home.
You might remember Peter's image, this is not far away from this, you can clearly see how the landscape changes, from soft to rough. … see see ....
Ah beautiful these layers of the Swiss hills and mountains. The haze and soft cloud really contribute to the mood of the sunset, I can feel the light wind wash away the warm of the day and the air begin to feel like early fall with refreshing and crispness of autumn breeze. We are hoping to go visit and bring Tyler to meet the family next year sometime.
What a moment you captured here. I like the mood of peace it brings . We do not always have a camera handy at times like this but when we prepared this gives us a beautiful achievement and perpetuates unforgettable moments.
Das ist ja fast ein Gemälde! Die im Dunst verschwindende Landschaft und die zarten ineinandergehenden Lila- und Orangetöne am Himmel - einfach wunderschön und faszinierend! Tja, und dann noch dieser Kommentar zum Bild. Man wird unruhig ... ;-)
Grüße aus dem heute sehr sonnigen Westfalen. Ich werde wandern ...
I think you had the best choice to stand outside with a glass of wine rather than staying in the restaurant as you had this lovely view with you. Good that you had a camera too. :-) I like this kind of landscapes with layered undulating ridges where the the ridges become more and more misty the further they are. The sky has also beautiful hues and the photo as a wole has a lovely atmosphere.
I am a sucker for this kind of image. They are not easy to be done and yet this one looks absolutely gorgeous in every respect. I LOVE the soft and pastel colors and I can see this is a BIG print hanging in an office or even in my living room.
