Don’t get me wrong, I love summer. Photographically speaking however, I am very happy that fall will be arriving in Switzerland soon. Photography life is so much more interesting once the summer is over. Because of the fall colors of course but even more because of snow slowly painting the mountain tops white again (I find mountains without snow a bit boring to be honest). This autumn will be a special one for me. I will be spending 3 to 4 weeks full-time in the midst of alps of the Swiss Engadin region to capture Alpine autumn in various ways. Really looking forward to dedicating most of my time to shooting fall colors, early morning fog on lakes, first snow on the mountain tops, etc. Hoping to get enough material for a good cause project I will be disclosing later this year 🙂
The image above is an image I shot at the end of autumn in 2012. The lake is Lac de Derborence in the Swiss canton of Valais. In the background you see a mountain called Les Diablerets. There used to be a glacier climbing down there not so long ago. No longer unfortunately. Still beautiful scenery up at that lake though!
I captured this image using my 14-24 f/2.8 wide angle lens on a Nikon D800E. No filters were used. The image was processed in Adobe Lightroom 5.
