Photographer's Note

Hello,

I want to share with friends and curious on TE, an image of the place where I live. It is the canton of Valais, a long and narrow valley in the Alps.

I captured this picture from the top of Mont Rouge (2480 m.), the day after my return from Sicily. The week before, it had rained a lot, so the vegetation is bright green. (See in Google Maps/Earth)

The Valais region is divided into lowland and mountain, and the horizon follows the mountain ridges.

Short description:

The snow that you see on the highest mountain is the Diablerets Glacier (3100 m.).

In the plain, you can see on the right, the track of the aerodrome of Sion, the capital. Then to the left, the villages of Conthey, Vtroz and Ardon.

And in the bottom right corner, there are the laces of the road to the resort of Veysonnaz.

I hope you enjoy the panorama.
Have a nice day,
Adriano
