Photographer's Note

Here's another panorama stitched from two photos. I took this on a walk from the village of Wimmis to the summit of Niesen, a distinctive pyramid-shaped mountain rising 2362m high above the Thunersee lake. It's a good 5 hour or so climb to the top and takes in a variety of views, including over the lake. The summit is somewhat spoilt by an unsightly restaurant with hordes of tourists, but I recall at least that the cake was delicious and the cogwheel train down saved some legwork! Unfortunately my camera battery went flat before reaching the top, but I managed a few shots on the way. This was taken about halfway up, looking roughly south-west (I think) along the Simme Valley, whose river runs into the Thunersee. It shows clearly the glacial valley which is somewhat gentler in form than some of the more dramatic steep-sided Alpine valleys. For a shot of a local inhabitant, taken further up the ascent, see my workshop posting
