Posted By: simonkit, 04-28-2008, 12:00 PM

Just got back from an awesome week in Switzerland, stunning place - here's one of the first shots I've processed .....

Taken descending from 10,000 feet on the Glacier 3000 cable car near Gsdaat

All C&C welcome

Thanks everyone...

Fantastic place, Switzerland - stunning scenery & most unusual for someone from the UK, public transport that's efficient & clean !!

Didn't do any skiing, just touristy stuff, plan a revisit next year for some hiking though

Nice image Simon. You caught the feel of being up that high in the fog.
