Photographer's Note

This is a view from a small peak called Arolette, looking north to the distant snowy Bernese Alps and the nearby peak of Croix de Fer (Iron Cross) on the right. And yes, that's an iron cross on the top of the peak. Luckily there was a person on the summit providing a useful scale. Arolette is just near the border with France, in an area called Les Balmes, and we came to this spot from the French side.

Much of the Bernese Alps can be seen here, from the glaciated Balmhorn on the left to Aletschhorn peeking out from behind the Croix de Fer on the far right. The viewing conditions were superb on this day - exactly the sort of day I was dreaming about as I was planning my trip to the Alps. Dreams do come true!

This is a stitch of 3 photos to produce a panorama. I played around with contrast, saturation, noise reduction etc. in Photoshop to improve the image.
