Rosenlauistock and Kingspitz Switzerland

Even from the car park of the rosenlaui gorge, you can take amazing telephoto images of the jagged peaks above the forests.

This is a panoramic image from above the Rosenlaui gorge, near Meiringen, Switzerland. The mists and rain gave a strong atmospheric, almost ethereal quality to this scene, with the jagged spires curling like a hand or claw; held up to protect some diabolical gift, while a crow-like alpine chough flew past.

My contribution to Location Scout starts to spread across the world map as I'm increasingly spending more time as a professional landscape photographer. Follow me and my latest work and travels here:

Great parking opportunities. Be sure to come here during melting season. You're ahead of tourists and makes for a stunning walk into the gorge as well.
