Mystic mountain

Black & white capture of fog rising above La Tsarve mountain covered with snow

Mystic mountain
March 26, 2013 Johan Peijnenburg
In Photography
Mountain landscape in black & white with La Tsavre mountain in winter, surrounded by clouds and fog. La Tsarve mountain is located in La Fouly in Switzerland. (Johan Peijnenburg)
56mm – f/10 – 1/400 – ISO100 – D800E with 24-70mm f/2.8

I love mountains, fog and snow, so I am always happy when I can combine these three elements in an image. I captured this mountain landscape in black & white during a snowshoe hike last January. It was a bit of a dull day with lot’s of fog and clouds … and it was way too cold. Most of the trail was in the shade, so there weren’t a lot of wide-angle opportunities. The fog around the mountains on the side of the trail was rather nice and interesting though, so I decided to focus on shooting them to see if I could get something intimate and dramatic. The only thing I badly needed was a 4th element to play along: the light. And it did!

No filters were used for this image. I already knew that I was going to process this one in B&W when I shot it. I used Adobe’s Lightroom 4.3 and Nik’s Silver Efex Pro 2 to get to this result. Hope you like this mountain landscape in black & white!

The mountain in the image is called La Tsarve (or Mont Ferret). It is about 3000 meters high (9800ft) and it is located in La Fouly in the Swiss Val Ferret valley. This valley is located in the Swiss canton of Valais, on the southern side the Mont Blanc Massif.

    • Author

      Thanks Paul! That’s a nice compliment 🙂 How are things in Austria? End of season almost? 

      • Paul Turkowski 7 years ago

        Thanks Johan. Season still goes on – new snow arrived so I`m sure to be on skitour until 1st of May :)

        • Author

          I can imagine. Still snow here as well. Waiting until the snow line is at the right height to catch those half frozen alpine lakes 🙂 

  11. beautiful done Johan. Love the light and your comp. Something to sit and just look!

    Might find a mountain goat somewhere :))

    • Author

      Thank you! Actually there is a capricorn in this image! Shot various other images that day at long focal lengths with loads of capricorns and chamois :D

  12. Tom Tran 7 years ago

    Great scene, Johan. The trees in the foreground really give this a grand scale. 

    • Author

      many thanks Tom! Glad you like it. How are things on your side of the globe? 

      • Tom Tran 7 years ago

        It’s still semi-frozen over here, Johan. The Winter dude is extra stubborn this year, but I’m actually OK with it despite some moaning and groaning. :)

  13. Carolyn Fahm 7 years ago

    Oh, my goodness. A mountain shot at it’s most classic. It leaves me awestruck.

    • Author

      Very glad it does Carolyn 😀 But be careful. That’s not a state you wan’t to be in for too long 😉 Thank you for the compliment and for stopping by! 

  14. Jerry Johnson 7 years ago

      • Andreas Levi 7 years ago

        The guys from GB are really fast, Johan :)) Now I have all things here and hope to can test it (with better weather) at the weekend 🙂 Thanks again for your help :))

        • Author

          I know. Used them as well in the past. It is either them or B&H for me. By the way: don’t wait until the weather is to good. You need fast moving clouds 🙂

          • Andreas Levi 7 years ago

            Well, this is the problem Johan: we have sun at the moment here and no clouds nothing – boring 😉 :)) 

          • Author
            Johan Peijnenburg 7 years ago

            lucky you. I could use some sun here as well 🙂 I will send some clouds over to you 😉

          • Andreas Levi 7 years ago

            🙂 okay – then it is here not so cold: at the moment -6° and the night will be really frosty :)

  46. these are pretty much the last pieces of winter I am willing to accept :-)) excellent Johan 

  47. David Shield 7 years ago

    Great layered scene effect, and top quality processing Johan 

  48. Hi Johan! Your photograph presents the glory and majesty of the mountains in their best. The sharp edges soften by clouds make them very interesting, just absolutely impressive photo. I really enjoy this view but it had to be much excited to see it in real life. B&W conversion is absolutely brilliant, I love it. And on the end I have to express my respect for your efforts to get there to show us this beautiful landscape. Thanks Johan!

    • Author

      It’s what I love to do Grzegorz, so it’s my pleasure 😀 Thank you very much for the kind words!! Glad you like it 🙂 Did you get a D800 already, or are you waiting for a D4x? 😉 

      • Yes Johan, I have already D800 🙂 But still I don’t have to much chance to use it, the weather in Scotland is really bad recently for photography. You are right, this is just fantastic camera, I love it, but still need to buy 14-24mm 😉 Well, even with my 12-24mm it works perfectly, the sharpness is incredible. Do you play with time-lapses and movies as well?

        • Author

          congrats. You will love it! Nope. Haven’t done timelapse or video with it yet. Timelapse I hope to do coming summer 🙂 You? 

          • Grzegorz Piechowicz 7 years ago

            Not yet but it is my plans. Enjoyment with my photos is always my first priority but it may be quite good business as well. One friend of mine just sold a 5 mins time-lapse to BBC. Worth to consider. Now I am hungry for astro-photography and catching Milky Way, I did my first approach and I was just amazed what D800 can does. 

          • Author
            Johan Peijnenburg 7 years ago

            Yes, the same things are on my list for the summer. Haven’t done milky way’s yet 🙂

    @Jorunn: thank you Jorunn! 🙂
    @Sandy: long time no speak Sandy. Is all well with you? Thanks for the compliment!
    @Michael: glad you like it Michael! 🙂 

    • Sandy Schepis 7 years ago

      All is well. Sold my house so had to take a hiatus for a couple of months to declutter and pack and tear down my computer equipment and move cross country and then get “semi” settled in my new home and get everything back up and running. Whew! Hope things are well with you! :-)

      • Author

        Understandable Sandy. Hope you will fully settle soon! All’s well here as well. Waiting for the end of summer. Ready to go hiking without too much clothing 😉 

        • Sandy Schepis 7 years ago

          I hear ya, Johan! It’s even cold here in Savannah, GA which is unheard of this time of year. But no where near the cold I was used to in Colorado. Hope you get out hiking soon and share some more of your fantastic pics. 

          • Author
            Johan Peijnenburg 7 years ago

            thanks again! It is a bit extreme here as well. Not good for hiking and photography though as it is quite wet and dull as well … but it’s ok. Time to catch up on other stuff is welcome as well 🙂 

  57. Yes, indeed, Johan … I do like it! :o)

  58. Alycia Miller 7 years ago

    @Tim: many thanks Tim!

  61. Beautiful capture and pp Johan, phenomenal! 

  62. Armand Dijcks 7 years ago

    Milky Way time lapses in this landscape could be amazing Johan and Grzegorz . Also moonlight reflected on the snow covered mountains and stars rotating overhead makes for great time lapse material. Although it’s hard these days to come up with dome truly original shots. I have a couple of ideas up my sleeve though :-)

  63. Author

    @Louisa: many thanks Louisa !! 🙂
    @Armand: looking forward to the links up your sleeve 🙂 

    • Armand Dijcks 7 years ago

      This image has a certain Ansel Adams quality to it BTW…

      • Author

        that is a great compliment Armand! Thank you. I am always hunting for these types of scenes. Sometimes I get lucky 😉 

        • Armand Dijcks 7 years ago

  67. Ian Good 7 years ago

    It all came together very well Johan – stunning result!

  68. a beautifu mountain scenery and the mist and light makes it feel alive and moving.

    B/w was a fitting choice Johan :-)

    • Author

      glad you approve Michael 🙂 Not fed up with winter scenes yet?

      • nope Johan i will never get tired of any season, they all have their charm :-)

        • Author

          very true. Same here btw. Just need to make sure a get a break sometimes from doing the same thing too often. Like snowshoeing 🙂 

  69. Lovely how fog and mist is separating the two sides, as if the other side is a new territory! Light and mist, joining to make a picture-perfect! Beautifully processed Johan 🙂

    • Author

      Thank you very much for your nice words Naghmeh 😀 Much appreciated!

  70. Patrice PVK 7 years ago

    Again and again: the framing is fantastic, the postprod is wonderful… I’m not a big fan of strong vignetting though, but it fits your photo very nicely. Great shot Johan :-)

  71. Meg Rousher 7 years ago

    Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful friend Johan.
    Before last weekend, My family and I went skiing to Mount Washington, B.C. and all the time you and Athena Carey were in my thoughts, I said… Ohhh men, this is not easy!, carrying all these equipment for a picture, lol.
    At the end, I couldn’t arrive so far and I got very sick (cold-sinus).
    I really admire you, guys! so I guess, I should keep myself in the sun, at the bottom surrounded with colourful flowers :-).

    • Author

      thank you Yasmin 🙂 Funny that you think of us when up there … and now I will think of you when the flowers start to bloom here 🙂

          Sounds like great course Beverley! Was it 7 weeks non-stop??? All’s fine here as well. Fed up with winter now. Need spring as well

    Beautiful photo I really like the depth and detail. The fourth element sun really brings it to life.

        Johan , they all are breathtaking and hard to choose!! Each one is a piece of art!!

          That is nice to hear Mona 🙂 I need to revisit a few images at the end of the year. My taste is evolving and think there are a few I can do a better job on :)

          • Mona Youssef 6 years ago

            Tell me about Johan !! 🙂 That is the true artist, never satisfied with what he dose and always wanting to perfect what he dose. There is always room for improvement so go for it and enjoy the process. :-)

            Think that is the way it should be Mona. I will quit as soon as I feel I have nothing to learn or improve anymore 🙂

            ENJOY learning as long as we live :-)
