When exploring the Alps, I often get nervous about an hour before sunset. Do I have a foreground subject? Is the sky interesting enough? How will the light hit the clouds? Do I have the right lens for what I have in mind? Should I maybe quickly relocate to that other spot just 10 minutes away? Usually, I just stick to where I am, work with what I have and take the time to watch the scene evolve. The nerves are always replaced with adrenaline quickly when I start to work the scene. The adrenaline is subsequently always replaced by amazement about how beautiful nature can be at the right time of day. This photograph of a sunset at Laghetto Moesola titled Mountain Moods is proof of that.
Mountain Moods, a mountain lake sunset in B&WA moody mountain lake sunset at Laghetto Moesola, a small Swiss lake situated at the summit of the San Bernardino Pass. In the background the mountains Piz Uccello and Piz de la Lumbreida.
I captured this photo at the summit of the San Bernadino Pass in the Swiss canton of Graubünden. In the background of the lake, you see the mountains Piz Uccello and Piz de la Lumbreida.
The fog came into the scene only a few minutes before photographing it. A few minutes later, the fog covered both mountains, and the sun no longer lit the clouds. Fog already covered the other spot just 10 minutes away when I captured this scene.
