No idea where you live, but the picture was taken from Buochs, NW heading about 080deg, at about 07:15 in the morning.

You work for Pilatus Aircraft Ltd. and your mobile # is 076 XXX XXXX.

Do I win a prize?

Actually looking closer, Beckenried is too far to the left, and Stanserhorn is the mountain at the far right so this must be the mountain behind Buochs in the foreground ... but I take it this is a view of where you live, rather than from where you live ???

Buochs, the lower slopes of the Buochserhorn and Beckenried are all very acceptable answers.

@Assassin - yes it was about 07:15!
