Notice how the otherwise sharp background is blurred by the fighters' hot exhausts.

Wow jawdropping shot of Axalp

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue February 22, 2011:
Incredible pic! The planes look like they are flying so slow towards the mountain.....

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat July 31, 2010:
Sleek looking aircraft in tight formation , the slight difference in wing positions showing the delicate balance to achieve this manouver

A visitor from - posted Sun November 1, 2009:
Fantastic shot with the mountain range as the background and the people so close in the foreground-wish I could take such a shot!!

A visitor from United States posted Thu July 2, 2009:
The hills are alive with the sound of.....the Swiss Air Force!!

A visitor from Netherlands posted Wed June 24, 2009:
What a great photo!
To the people who think this isn't real and ask why some people aren't watching it:
Mr. de Groot used a extreme Zoom lens for this photo. (I don't know any mm. numbers)But he was on a hill/mountain further away (I think) Used all his zoom and took the picture. That's why it seems that the mountain and the formation is VERY close to eachother. But actually it's pretty far apart.
That's why the Jets aren't very well seen by the spectators on the hill.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Thu June 18, 2009:
Actually it is Swiss Air force... but stunning photo, the background is amazing...

Actually, I don't understand, why don't people watch the formation? On the picture only 1 person watches this rare thing ... :D

A visitor from Morocco posted Thu April 9, 2009:
Usa air force is amazingly represented in this foto!!great job from the fotographer who gives us a view from this mountain ,and the planes look very straight and spectaculary near to viewers

A visitor from France posted Wed February 18, 2009:
Nice shoot

A visitor from United States posted Sat September 20, 2008:
Unique, WOW!

A visitor from United States posted Sun March 9, 2008:
It almost looks fake because nobody is looking at them. if it is real, good job.

A visitor from Austria posted Sat March 8, 2008:
Great shot!! Congratulations!

A visitor from Bosnia And Herzegovina posted Tue October 16, 2007:
Great composition ! Congratulations, 5-stars from me...

A visitor from France posted Fri July 6, 2007:
Watch out for these swiss jet fighters: they seem to be headed straight into the mountain!

A visitor from India posted Fri June 22, 2007:

A visitor from Australia posted Fri June 22, 2007:
Brilliant Image. The aircraft seem to just "hang" there as if posing for their picture. Magnificent capture of the moment!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Fri June 22, 2007:
Very good picture,like the whole scenery part.

A visitor from New Zealand posted Wed June 20, 2007:
Great blend of spectacular scenery, and an excellent formation display team.
