As you’ve probably figured out by now, I usually don’t work on new photographs immediately. On the contrary, I like to sit on them for at least half a year to let them “mature” a bit. For some reason, that makes it easier for me to make selections and to get into the right flow to put in the necessary effort. Besides that, the good ones seem to jump right at you and tell you how they want to be dealt with in post-processing after they have had a good rest. Sounds familiar?
I shot this Swiss landscape photograph in September last year, during a 4-week landscape shooting assignment in the beautiful Engadin region in the Swiss canton of Graubünden. The photograph features an alpine mountain river up at the Albula Pass. In the back, you see a mountain called Piz Üertsch. I love how the river elegantly slaloms down from the Alps in the back.
I shot this Swiss landscape photograph on a day with rather moody weather. The light was quite lovely and created an interesting mood. I climbed up a cliff to get this specific angle and point of view. As a result, I was able to add extra depth and give the viewer the feeling of flying into the scene. Hope you like how it came out!?
I captured this photo with my 24-70mm f/2.8 Nikkor lens on a Nikon D800E, and used a Singh Ray 2-stop graduated filter to balance the exposure.
Just click on the photograph to learn a bit more about it or to buy a print or licence of this Swiss landscape photograph.
Cheers, Johan 🙂
