Don’t get me wrong, I love summer. However, from a photography perspective, I am so 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 colours of course but even more because of snow slowly turning the mountain peaks 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 amid the Alps in the Swiss Engadin region. I will be there to capture mountain lakes in fall and autumn in general.
Looking forward to dedicating most of my time to shooting fall colours, early morning fog on lakes, first snow on the mountain tops, etc 🙂
Lac de DerborenceLes Diablerets mountain and trees with fall colours reflected in Lac de Derborence in Switzerland.
I photographed this scene 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.
Cheers, Johan 🙂
