I published many black and white (long exposure) images lately, so I figured it was time again to post in color 🙂
This photograph features a small Alpine lake called “Lej Pitschen”. It’s located at the top of the well-known Bernina pass in Engadin (canton Graubünden in Switzerland). In the background you see the mountain Piz Cambrena, which has an altitude of 3606 meter (11.830ft).
I captured this image at the end of May (last weekend). The lake was still partly frozen. As I was shooting fairly close to sunset, I ran around like a maniac to try to capture this lake and the surrounding mountains with differing compositions, perspectives and focal lengths. About 10 minutes after I shot this one, the light was no longer hitting the scene. Timing is everything in landscape photography!
For this image I used my 14-24 f/2.8 wide angle lens. No filters were used. The image was process in Adobe Lightroom 4.1.
