View from Eggishorn to famous Great Aletschgletscher (Alletsch Glacier).
Background: Concordia Place (Konkordiaplatz) with Alp summits of Jungfrau, Mönch, Trugberg and Eiger.
Great Aletsch Glacier is the largest glacier in the Alps. It has a length of about 23 km and a volume of about 15.4 km3, it covers around 81.7 km2.
Great Aletsch Glacier is located in the eastern Bernese Alps in the Swiss canton of Valais.
At the Konkordiaplatz, the glacier has an ice cover of more than 900 m, but as it moves to the south, the greater part of the ice melts, gradually decreasing the cover to around 150 m.
The area of the Aletsch Glacier and some surrounding valleys is on the UNESCO World Heritage list.

Bonjour Miro,

Tout me plait sur votre composition; le cadrage, la netteté, les couleurs marbrées du ciel nuageux, la lumière au sommet des pics. Quel joli glacier! merci pour le partage.

Hi Miro

Photography is all about opinions with no-one being right and no-one being wrong. And, for what it's worth, this is my opinion.
A great scene with great depth and you have captured wonderfully. But, bearing in mind what I said above I would have done it slightly different. The rock on the left intrudes, so I would have cropped that out. Because a camera expects a scene to be 18% grey, it exposes to that, so the image is a little dark. Still an excellent result, and this is my opinion as an amateur only.

I hope you don,t mind but, for my own entertainment, I've done a workshop.

Spellbinding image with good detail and sharpness.
