Last week I visited the Swiss National Park in the canton of Graubünden again. I hiked about 50 kilometres in 3 days and really enjoyed the unspoiled scenery and great weather. Additionally, I saw quite a bit of wildlife. I ran into deer, ibex, chamois and alpine marmots! There are plenty of rocky mountain rivers in the park. As a result, hiking breaks were often spent near an alpine mountain river to combine resting with shooting a long exposure of a river rapid.
The one in this post is an example of such a long exposure. Instead of including the surrounding scenery, I decided to focus on the details of this alpine mountain river a bit more.
Marbled, a gorgeous river rapid in black & whiteA fine art long exposure of an alpine mountain river rapid in black & white, featuring white water and dark marbled rocks with white streaks.
I personally really like how the dark marbled rocks contrast with the blurred stream of water in this photograph. I used a 24mm f/1.4 lens combined with a 6-stop ND filter to blur the flowing water.
