The backdrop to the 41st G7 Summit held in Germany is breathtaking, with its green trees and towering mountains. It makes for great image of German Chancellor Angela Merkel talking and gesturing with a seated President Obama.

It's made all the better with Merkel's shruggie pose ¯\_(ツ)_/¯, which also just so happens to look like that one scene from "The Sound of Music."

Whatever they were talking about, Merkel seems much more relaxed talking with Obama than she did at the 2006 summit, when George W. Bush gave her an impromptu massage.
