Though Switzerland is landlocked, she is connected to some of the most important European seas. From a little area in the Swiss alps, the rivers Rhone, Rhine, Ticino and Inn (Danube) spring off and flow in the Mediterranean Sea, the Northsea, the Adriatic Sea and the Black Sea.
Zwar ist die Schweiz ein Binnenland, jedoch entspringen aus einem relativ kleinen Gebiet in den schweizerischen Alpen der Rhein, die Rhone, der Ticino (Po) und der Inn (Donau), welche einige der wichtigsten Meere Europas, die Nordsee, das Mittelmeer, die Adria und das Schwarze Meer versorgen.
Yes this is what we call a pass!!! Dearest May your first page of your wonderful gallery is full of tempting vistas, in htis one I love the fluffy clouds, the W of the mountains and the road moving through the shot and falling away tempting us down towards a future full of promise and adventure.
Great information provided too which is so useful. Thanks. Most friendly greetings from nick
Nick, thanks a lot for visiting my Swiss mountain series and for describing it so nicely. I took this photo with the road to emphasize the great importance of this pass, used during thousands of years. The round cylindershaped stone on the right is a remain from the Romans. More in my earlier photos of this pass.
My best wishes for a nice weekend, May
Hamza, thanks for your comment! The scenery in the mountain-valleys and -passes is beautiful...
Curiosa coincidenza: dallo stesso punto la mia signora mi ha fotografato all'arrivo sullo Julier in bicicletta, dieci anni orsono, ciao Tommy
Grazie, Tommy per visitare il Julier un altra volta qui! In bicicletta! Wow! Che forte!
My excitement increases, my pulse is quickened for as we crest the pass, we begin our descent into one of the most beautiful valleys in the Alps. And that wonderful panorama of sunlit and dappled peaks, interlocking spurs and sculpted valley enthrals.
The rocks tell so many stories of human and Earth's history to those, who are able to listen and to see. Thank you Ian for being a person, who understands. Best wishes, May
