Earlier this year I organised a Google+ photo walk to Leysin, which is a small town in the Alps of the Swiss canton of Vaud. Unfortunately, it was quite hazy that day, and it was hard to get really nice photographs. Luckily, it cleared up a bit at the end of the day and I was able to get away with this photograph of the snow-covered peaks of the Grand Muveran and Petit Muveran mountains. Both are about 3.000 metres (10.000 ft) high and part of the Muverans massif.
The Diablerets Massif in B&W: Last mountain lightLast light on the snow-covered Grand Muveran and Petit Muveran mountains, as seen from Leysin in Switzerland.
I really loved how the last light was hitting the rugged face of these two mountains. That’s why I decided to focus on that and keep the composition reasonably simple: just the rugged mountain face and the soft last mountain light. I used a 2:1 crop to try to frame the key parts of the photograph a bit. Hope you like this image of the Swiss Alps! I captured this photograph of the Grand Muveran and Petit Muveran using a Nikon D3x with a 70-200 f/2.8 lens. No filters were used.
Cheers, Johan 🙂
