I am afraid I have more black & white mountain photography to share with you. Hope you’re not getting bored 🙂
I shot the photograph to the right last February when I was on one of my winter photo “hunting” trips. When I expect the right weather, I tend to just drive around in the Swiss alps for the best part of the day with loads of gear in the trunk and hunt for scenes with fast-changing weather. Sometimes this works, and sometimes it doesn’t.
Just Breathe, clearing fog above the Swiss Alps in B&WThe Swiss Alps near Gsteig in B&W, with clearing fog above Spitzhorn mountain and an alpine forest in winter.
This photograph features the Spitzhorn. The Spitzhorn has an altitude of 2,579 m (8,461 ft) and is part of the Bernese Alps. The mountain is located near Gsteig in the Berner Oberland region of the canton of Bern in Switzerland. I captured this landscape scene from a higher altitude on the opposite side of the valley. I loved how the light hit the mountain and surrounding forest as well as the fog that was just clearing around the peak of the mountain. The Swiss Alps can be breathtaking. Therefore “Just Breathe” seemed like a fitting title.
I previously published a colour version of this photograph. I felt that black & white would fit better, however. So, I decided to re-process it in black & white using Nik’s Silver Efex Pro 2. It did take a bit of time as I wasn’t sure which direction I should take it. Hope you like the result I arrived at in the end!
