Simone says:
‘The Altenalp Türm (2,033 metres) is a peak, located in the canton of Appenzell Innerrhoden. I visited it on a warm and beautiful day, with some of the peak still covered in snow. The green parts of the mountain were full of flowers and grass, so I searched for a beautiful group of alpine flowers in the foreground to set against the dramatic rocky peaks. This flower, narcissus anemone, was assessed as endangered in 1996 and placed on the Red List of Endangered Plant Species.’
