Photo of the Day #27: Ain't no Mountain High Enough
Besides the Pyrenees, I've been to quite a few mountain ranges, and the Alps are one of the most splendid. I was at Villars-sur-Ollon at the french speaking part of Switzerland, again for a photochemistry seminar in August 2008. Fortunately the time table wasn't that grueling, so I had the opportunity to see the Alps close hand (Villars-sur-Ollon is already quite high up the Alps already).
A mountain train took us rather close to the nearest summit and we trekked a small hike around a peak and several mountain lakes. The weathered rock revealed stripes of ancient strata, which worked as an effective contrast to the deep blue sky above. It was a good day...
