The weather up in the mountains of Switzerland is very unpredictable. As a result, you never know what you are going to get. This mountain landscape was captured at the end of a day with rather moody weather. Luckily it cleared up a bit. As a result, the peak of the Wendenhorn, and the clouds above it eventually got some beautiful light. As you can see, the peak of the Wendenhorn is rather rugged. That, in combination with the play of shadows and light, called for a darker black and white presentation.
The Wendenhorn is a mountain of the Urner Alps located in the Swiss canton of Uri, close to the Susten Pass. The Wendenhorn is 3,023 metres (9,918 ft) high.
