Photographer's Note

Once again back to summer ...

Here you can see a wildflower meadow in the Austrian state Vorarlberg, situated high above the small village Gargellen in a side valley of Montafon valley.

The purple flowers all are orchids of the genus "Orchis", in German "Knabenkräuter". There are several species of them here.
Montafon valley is famous for its wonderful wildflower meadows which are worth-seeing especially in June and July.
This meadow is situated in an altitude of about 1600 metres - towered above by "Ritzenspitzen", 2650 m.
