This mountain landscape photograph in colour, titled “Winter Bliss”, was captured along a winter hiking trail in the Swiss Alps near Ollon. Ollon is a small town in the district of Aigle in the canton of Vaud in Switzerland.

A few nights with fresh snow preceded this sunny winter’s day in the Swiss Alps. The snow on the meadow is nicely pristine, and the trees still have a dusting of snow as a result. The old hardwood barn on the right side is typical for the Swiss Alps. In the back, you see a mountain called Grand Muveran. The Grand Muveran is a mountain of the Bernese Alps, and its highest point is at 3,051 metres (10,000 ft) above sea level. It is accompanied by the smaller peak of the Petit Muveran, just to the right of it.
