Mountainous areas in particular really inspire me because there’s always something unexpected around the corner. This is one of the key reasons why I moved to the Swiss Alps almost 5 years ago now. This winter mountain landscape was an unexpected view I ran into at the end of the day after a long hike in the mountains near Saas Fee in Switzerland. The image features the Almagellerhorn at sunset with the Pizzo d’Andolla in the background. The scene is lit in patches with the last light that managed to squeeze over a neighboring mountain.
I shot this scene with varying compositions. I liked this more “aggressive” composition best. No filters were used for this capture. I processed the image with Adobe’s Lightroom 5. Hope you like it!
