I was in Zermatt, Switzerland, for a few days last week. Amongst others, I was there for a photo walk with the Swiss Photography Club G+, as well as a climb up to the summit of the Breithorn (4,164 m / 13,661 ft) … pffff. The most dominant peak in the Zermatt region is the Matterhorn. Its summit is 4,478 metres (14,690 ft) high, making it one of the highest peaks in the Alps. It also one of the most photographed mountains of the Alps, so it is hard to come home with something original.
During one of my hikes last week, the cloud formations around the Matterhorn looked interesting enough to try something different: a long exposure. As it was quite sunny, I combined 3 Lee ND filters (10 + 3 + 2) to get to 15 stops of exposure reduction and with that an exposure time of 2 minutes. I processed the image in Lightroom 4.1 and Silver Efex Pro 2. I like the result of this experiment. Hope you do to!
