Photographer's Note

"First" by the way in this instance is not the adjective describing pre-eminence (the ordinal form of the number one), but identifies a summit location above Grindelwald on the slopes of the Schwarzhorn in the Bernese Oberland in Switzerland!

I came across these two posing for the rest of their family on the edge of a cliff overlooking the spectacular upper Lüschental, with the Eiger beyond, partly shrouded in cloud. They - and us - were on the Eiger Ultra Trail, though given their footwear I doubt they were intending to attempt the whole 101 kilometer route! Neither were we of course. We had taken the cable car up to First from Grindelwald and were enjoying a leisurely stroll to the Bachsee, a small mountain tarn only some 50 minutes walk away.
