Photographer's Note

A few hours’ walk on from Oeschinensee and about a kilometre higher in altitude, I took this on a short break sitting on the bare scree slope and looking back along the route we had just trodden. Although bare in appearance, every so often between the stones there were beautiful, brightly coloured flowers which appeared to grow from nowhere. On the left you can see part of the Blόemlisalp Gletscher creeping its way towards the valley, and a small glacial lake which doesn’t seem to have a name. On the left are some interesting ridges which form the pathway for walkers. Further down and long since out of sight is the lake of Oeschinensee which I’ve featured in earlier postings.

I was shooting directly into the sun here, but I was quite pleased with the effects of light and shadow across this breathtaking landscape, and of the clear visibility into the distance.
