Dents du Midi





You can click on the image for a full view.

From this part of Switzerland around Laussane, Lake Geneva, Montreux, Aigle...the most prominent sight is the Dents du Midi.  Anytime spent in Switzerland is time spent in the mountains.  We stayed for a while in Huemoz/Villars area of Switzerland about 30 miles from Montreux.  We purposely tried to stay away from the more tourist areas such as Montreux so we could get a better feel for the culture and have the chance to speak French.  In the larger cities in both Switzerland and France, the residents speak English and French but get away from those areas and the conversation begins in earnest!

Often times in paintings of Switzerland in the Romantic period if there are mountain settings...they will include the Dents du Midi.  A section of the first wall of the Alps that from different vantage points look like a row of teeth (Dents du Midi).  These are the first of the Alps one sees as you get closer to these magnificent mountains.  The first picture above shows the "Dents" towering over the valley in the foreground at sunset.

Thanks Adrian. I know that most all of these are HDR but I am addicted to that process. I carried a tripod all over Europe because you need a tripod when shooting HDR. Not an easy task at times!

Jillien thank you so much for the kind comment. I spent a fair amount of time in New Orleans in my "past" life. I now know why it is called the French Quarter! So much of the architecture I saw reminds me of that area.

I like the light in that first photo especially. I've never been to Switzerland but I've been to Austria.

Mia...thanks for the comment. It was one of those "right time-right place" shots. The light was perfect.

DawnTreader...I've not been to Austria but from what I understand it is quite similar in landscape. So you know how beautiful this part of the continent is!
