Earlier this year I organized a Google+ photo walk to Leysin, which is a small town in the midst of the Swiss Alps of Valais. Unfortunately it was quite hazy that day and it was hard to get really nice shots. Luckily, it cleared up a bit at the end of the day and I was able to get away with this photograph of the snow-covered Grand Muveran and Petit Muveran mountains. Both are about 3.000 meters (10.000 ft) high.
I really loved how the last light was hitting the rugged face of these two mountains. That’s why I decided to focus on that and keep the composition fairly simple: just the rugged mountain face and the soft last mountain light. The used a 2:1 crop to try to frame the key parts of the image a bit. Hope you like it!
