I am so looking forward to the arrival of snow in the Swiss Alps! Winter mountain photography is one of my favourite types of photography. A Swiss alpine region I like a lot for winter mountain photography is the Diablerets mountain region. The Diablerets massif lies between the cantons of Valais and Vaud, in the western French-speaking part of Switzerland. The mountains in this region are incredible. They have so much character. It is hard to stop shooting, especially in Winter! It’s one of those places that makes my heart beat faster, and it just puts a smile on my face that usually won’t fade for days! Sort of my personal paradise … only half an hour from my home 🙂

The photograph in this post is one that I shot in February. When I captured it, I already knew I would process it in black & white and have now finally found the time to do it. The mountain in the photograph is the Schluchhorn, which has an altitude of 2,579 metres (8,461 ft). I hope you like it!
Cheers, Johan 🙂
