The Jura Mountains form a long line that fills the entire northerly horizon when viewed from the ciy of Solothurn. The Weissenstein is the highest peak. The Jura Mountains offer a nearby, easily-accessible welcome change from life on the Swiss plain and are therefore a favourite destination for walkers and picnickers. The plain is often covered in low-lying mist, and these nearby mountains offer the chance to get up into the sunshine. From this section of the Jura, the view of the long line of the Bernese Oberland Alps to the south is most impressive.

The above painting is from the Jura Mountains just north-east of Solothurn. We are above the mist that forms a blanket over the Swiss plain and are looking westwards into the setting sun that has just formed a very typical but short-lived yellow-orange glow in the sky. On the right the Jura mountains - above all the Weissenstein - rise out of the cloud-topped mists.
