The view to the mountain Schijenflue by ManuelMartin1972

The weather was just great and I already guessed that the sunset would be fantastic. Thus I made my way because near our house in the mountains there is an imposing gorge. The plan was to photograph the sunset from this gorge! But unfortunately the plan remained only plan, because the way down into the gorge was blocked. And even Elvish nor the one Ring were a help he he he. I wanted to climb over the barriers, as a farmer caught me doing what I was doing! He cried „I wouldn’t do that. It’s too dangerous, you can’t go down to the gorge! There was a landslide in spring and the area is really not very safe!“. Not 5 minutes later I was already invited by him and his wife to have an espresso. Very very friendly people in Graubünden he he he 🙂 I enjoyed the time with this fine company.

My plan failed and I wondered what I should do then. So I said to myself … simply start walking, and let fate decide where it leads you. Sometimes these are the best adventures!! During my hike towards Mount Schijenflue I noticed that I never was in the riverbed of the Schanielenbach. It was time to change this he he he. So I went down to the river, set up the tripod and waited for the dawn. I hope you like the result.

Thank you for your time and interest in my photos, your visit is most appreciated 🙂

The taste of the mountains by ManuelMartin1972

During our vacation in the Alps, we take a few small hikes with a horde of children. Friends of ours were with their children also in the mountains, and that meant „Obligation for all children to hike with me“ he he he 🙂 It was clear that the children had been overjoyed to be outdoors but they were also running around completely headless. I told the children again and again „Don’t run, it can be dangerous. You have to walk, because there is the dangerous of having twisted an ankle!“. And indeed, after shouting out 2’740 times they finally listen to me he he he 😉 With one small exception! Through the running all the time around and the loud laughter of the children our dog was also animated to do the same. And unfortunately I have never mastered the language of dogs. Before I could take Giorgio on a leash … it happened, what had to happen. Result: An ankle was a bit twisted!!! Well, it was not so bad and we still could admire the beautiful scenery in front of us which I was able to shoot after lunch!

Thank you for your time and interest in my photos, your visit is most appreciated 🙂
