Grazing beneath the Alps

While trekking through the Swiss Alps, above the town of Engelberg, I stumbled upon this pasture of friendly cows. The mountains here rang with a beautiful song. This unique sound is created by the large bells that adorn each of these cows. The rustic pastoral setting and the stunning beauty of the Alps was perfectly revealed by the midday sun, filtered through the clouds of an approaching storm. These elements made for an absolutely heavenly experience.
