Wonderful series - refreshing for me to see on this hot, muggy Texas morning.

The colors are perfect.

Nice. They remind me of my trip to Austria in 1990 I had the most excellent hike through the Zillertal Alps for days !

You have some stunning images there, but I fear the could be a good bit of hiking with equipment involved to get to these places.

Heres a few from my 1990 trip to the alps in Austria. They're bad I know I took them with a K1000 and I was just learning photography.

These were taken at Berliner Hutte in the Zillertal Alps of Austria near the Italian border.

Calcad, I really like the last two images, these are great.
I feel the Marten, or whatever it is called could do with a crop on the left side, also the frog with a couple of inches off the top.

These two images are great nonetheless, but they will have more impact and look fantastic with the crops applied.

The place is the hight Valtellina in the Stelvio National Park (Italy).
They were taken at about 2800 metres (9183 feets)...I walked from 7am to 3pm but I made a lot of pauses to take pictures.
Paulyrichard, Thank for your suggestion, I will try it.
