View south-east from top of Stockhorn. Front right -> Mount Niesen, 2'362 m (terrace on top and buildings visible). Back left -> the famous Jungfrau and the Mönch.

Additional information for original size: The deep valley on the left side is the Suldbachtal. Between this valley and the Mönch (left) you can see the dark and 'tiny' peaks of the Lobhörner (2'566 m); in front and beneath the majestic Jungfrau (4'158 m) is the Schwalmere (2'777 m). On Jungfraujoch (called 'Top of Europe'), in a distance of 38 kilometers, is the Sphynx (observatory and alpine research station). Somewhat to the right of Mt. Niesen and behind it is the 'sunny little white peak' of the Schilthorn (2'970 m) and its revolving restaurant 'Piz Gloria'.

Well, it's one more of my fotos taken with a 30 years old, fully manual Nikon lens, which still fits my digital camera. It's a heavy piece of quality equipment, nothing but pure steel and glass. (In the last two years I already wrecked two of those automatic, modern butfragile plastic Nikon lenses, but the antique one is still in use, without complaints . . . just a bit more difficult to handle).
