Alpine Scene

The Gondola ascending up to the Mountain hotel through the clouds. Did nothing all day but found a good word game on my phone which appealed to me.
Three good things;
1. Getting sick of too much rich food, breathlessness, pains all over the place - existing on painkillers. Good thing is we are leaving in a day.
2 John keeps saying to very loud Asians who come up for a while and talk SO loudly, Could you speak up please - they can't hear you in London"! Unfortunately very few know English!
3. We could have been angels in these cloudy heights but I didn't feel like one - not even a grumpy angel!
What a fantastic view!

@brennieb That's probably what I've got. I'll feel better when I can get more oxygen into my lungs, Brennie!

Ooh what a view despite it being disrupted by the mist and clouds. Maggie I hope you will soon feel better after you have descended from the stunning heights !!

That's a very atmospheric shot. Hope you feel better soon.

A fabulous shot but I hope will feel better at low altitude - maybe your noisy tourists will stay up there!!

Amazing up there, isn't it. I was on Mount Corvach once and the scenery was fantastic. It was in Summer then. I wonder how people could live up there in Winter.

What a view!

@beryl Its the lack of oxygen that brings on a lot of side effects, Beryl. Now down at Lucerne and I can once more take a deep breath!

@judithdeacon Today there were 3 ladies all talking loudly into their phones- everyone could hear! And they weren't Asian!

@k1w1 I'm sure its just he lack of oxygen - so when we descend from the clouds, it will be a relief!
posted January 12th, 2018  
Wow amazing shot. Altitude can be a bugger can't it. Hope you get some relief as you descend.

Hope you are feeling better soon,the scenery is breathtaking, just a shame you are not enjoying it. Nowadays I can’t eat many meals out on a trot 2 days are about my limit and I would be on starters for maincourses! Hyiatus hernia too!!

@craftymeg Starters are now my limit! Imagine being served 5 courses! I really suffered in spite of only eating 1/2 of all!

Wow...stellar capture and pov

Great capture. And I had to chuckle at your depiction of the noisy visitors. Having spent significant time in eastern Asia I can appreciate your frustration. Plus it's nice to know that for once the Americans aren't being singled out as the loud ones. ;)

Looks like a scene from a thriller movie.

@stray_shooter You are so right, Ron! However there was one American lady in a group who seemed to want everybody to listen to her!
posted January 13th, 2018  
Very dramatic...

almost makes me dizzy! excellent POV ~ fav
