The north face of the Schluchhorn mountain, extending towards the Sanetschhorn. Both are part of the Diablerets massif. (Johan Peijnenburg)
38mm – f/11 – 1/125 – ISO100 – D3x with 24-70 f/2.8

The image above was shot last December at the end of a cold winter-day. It features the Schluchhorn (2,579 m – 8,461 ft). Its very characteristic north face extends all the way from the left to the right side of the image, where it meets with the Sanetschhorn (2,924 m – 9,593 ft). Both mountains are part of the Diablerets massif in Switzerland. In this image the Schluchhorn is barely catching a bit of last light.

I decided to process the image in black and white using Silver Efex Pro 2, to create a bit of a dark and moody effect. I will post the color version at a later stage as well …
