Artist's Description

Part of my World from Above Collection captured from a commercial flight from Lyon to Munich on 7th May 2015. We had breath-taking views of the Alps from France, through Switzerland, Austria, Liechtenstein and Germany.

This shot is looking south with lake Thun on the left and the famous ski resort of Interlaken visible at the end of the lake, in the valley on the left separating Lake Thun from Lake Brienz. The town of Spiez can be seen on the left bank. The famous – or infamous – North Face of the Eiger 3,970 metres (13,020 ft) is clearly visible in the Bernese Alps beyond the lake.

From the Eiger follow the ridge crest to the right which extends across the Mönch at 4,107 m (13,474 ft) to the Jungfrau at 4,158 m (13,642 ft). The Jungfrau-Aletsch protected area is the first UNESCO World Natural Heritage site in the Alps and is the largest glaciated area in western Eurasia, comprising the Aletsch Glacier.

Dedicated to the Flight Attendant who took time to give me a heads up that the view over the Alps would be fantastic even though it was a bit hazy in Lyon. And she was right! And my seat and window were perfect.

Nikon D7100, Nikkor 18-200mm. RAW. Post-pro adjustment of contrasts, tones, etc. in Adobe CC with NikColorEfex and NikDefine.
