The Alpine Zone

By hrsimages
We toiled up on snow shoes for hours to reach an overlook just above the tree line where the views opened up across a rolling snow covered alp giving way to distant glacier covered peaks. A popular summer walk leads on across meadows to a pair of beautiful high alpine lakes. Tempting though that seemed, it is definitely something for longer and warmer days and we reluctantly began our descent, reaching the town as the light was just starting to fade and the nightly freeze setting in. We didn't come across a single person all day.

Very hard work indeed, snowshoeing up slopes like those, but your effort was rewarded with a great picture. I like the composition very much, particularly the way that the large conifer on the right directs attention to the crags of dark rock.

A beautiful scene. I wish I was fit enough to explore such places.
