I like the clarity but this being the highest peak around and all you'd expect to see a more breathtaking view. Sorry but this observation, and also the people in the shot make it not up to par with the large selection of wallpaper worthy images on IFL.

Beautiful.

Ah, that building on the top ... Isn't that a location that was used in a James Bond movie? ("On Her Majesty's Secret Service" with George Lazenby as James Bond)

Sněžka or Śnieżka (in Czech and Polish, Schneekoppe in German) is a mountain on the border between the Czech Republic and Poland, the most prominent point of the Silesian Ridge in the Krkonoše mountains. At 1,602 metres (5,256 ft), its summit is the highest point in the Czech Republic, in the Krkonoše and in the entire Sudetes range system. One side of the mountain is in Poland; the other belongs to the Czech Republic.

Ive been to this mountain, although without all the snow...but even then it was very cold and very windy....at that altitude there isn't any trees on the mountain and the building on top is a weather station / restaurant / souvenir shop for climbers. The building in the foreground is also a restaurant and rest station. Although the climb can be strenuous on the final leg its is mostly a paved path to the top, and when I was there in 2010 they were continue to make a paved path to the top. However the path is covered by snow in this photo. The mountain straddles the Polish / Czech border ....although Im not sure which side has the actual summit.

you could have easily photo-shopped out the skier to give it a more pristine look and feel but overall its a good photo. I enjoy it because its some place Ive actually been so its makes it fun for me.

Like it a lot. I'm a Polish-American and my ski trip to Europe (PL mainly) just got canceled cause of work. So I really appreciate this photo and am using it as my desktop at work. Keep it coming Jacek, I'm following you now.

If you ever get a chance to go back there, I think it would be cool if you got a shot of the "snow-ghosts" (trees, bushes covered completely by snow) against the sun to get a cool halo silhouette effect; maybe?
