A path winds invitingly through wildflowers to a viewpoint above the beautiful Lauterbrunnen valley amid the snow-capped mountains of the Bernese Oberland in Switzerland. Mist hangs in the valley to be burned off by the warmth of the sun.
A visit to the area in 1911 was later to prove the inspiration for the enchanted valley of Rivendell in JRR Tolkien's writings.
Painted from artist's own reference.
The painting is professionally framed and ready to hang (see below).
