Taken in Switzerland on the top of Rigi-Kulm.
As the sun sets in-between the two layers of clouds on top of the Mountains it gives everything a warm glow and the peaks of Mountains are just a wonderful site to be sandwiched between the clouds, the amazing silhouettes of the trees....watching day turn to dusk is a really beautiful site to take in, I hope you enjoy seeing my photography through my eyes.
Rigi is a mountain in central Switzerland. It is also known as the "Queen of the Mountains." The highest peak is the Rigi-Kulm at 1,797.5 meters, with Rigi-Hochflue, Dossen and Rotstock and Rigi-Scheidegg being slightly less high.
The name "Rigi" comes from Riginen which is the stratification that is clearly visible on the north-side of the mountain and is one of the identifying characteristics of Mt. Rigi. During the early days of tourism in the Alps, it was said that the name came from the Latin Regina montium-"Queen of the Mountains", this however is not accurate, as the first known use of Riginen dates back to 1384. The oldest known naming of the mountain at all is from 1368: in pede montis riginam ("at the feet of mount Rigina".)
