Guete Morge Peterli-
Since we are discussing the Berner Oberland, we should use a proper greeting for the region, I think.
<<"Was that first image, "From-the-Hotel-Eiger", really taken from your hotel room ? ">> Yes, really. Actually, to be precise, from the balcony. . We had a room on one of the higher floors, and I almost surely used a 150 mm lens on my 6by7. In 35 mm camera equivalents, that would be approximately a 75 mm lens. We woke up to that view before breakfast, and I hurriedly set up my tripod and snapped a roll of 10 frames of 120 film. Probably Kodak EPP. As I straightened up from finishing those shots, I heard a voice- "Did you get it?" The clouds and the light were shifting. If you know the Hotel Eiger, the balconies of the rooms were quite close, and the person in the room to our left had come out to see the same view. -- <<"I know the general view, looking down to the Lauterbrunnen valley, but I would have thought there would be traces of structures in Wengen in the foreground. In any case, it is a lovely image, as good as any postcard I have seen. When I was a little boy, it was an image of this valley that first made me want to travel to Switzerland.">>
This view (attached) compelled me to return time several times until I had a rare clear day allowing visibility all the way into the valley, with almost no haze. This version is a bit over saturated, but it was my first large print to be hung on the wall. Roughly 30 by 75 cm. It catches visitors eye. ;-)
It was taken just above the point where the old tracks and the new converge as the tracks come up the hill near the station in Wengen. Probably, an 85 mm lens...about 45 mm equivalent, but possibly the same longer lens as before.
One of my favorite images of the region is the one attached from near Männlichen (Passing Tschuggen), even though it lacks a good composition, because the two small figures are my daughter and granddaughter in 2009. For composition, "Eiger and Tschuggen" is better.
<<"Your "Times Square" image reminds me of la Fête de la Désalpe in Lignières (canton of Neuchâtel) in late September.">>
I also have attached two images from the Alpabzug above Ennetbürgen.
To close then, after those images, I suppose that something in L0zärner dialect would be appropriate, but I don't know how to say ( or write) that.
Perhaps the Berner "adjeu" will do for you?
PS- please forgive the layout of this post. The Forum software apparently prefers to close up spacing after carriage returns....sometimes. I tried to open up the first paragraph for clarity, but could not get it taken apart.
