Although I am a bit late, I still would like to wish everyone a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year!!! Let’s all shoot for the moon like the fog in this mountain landscape with snow … even if we miss, we’ll still land among the stars! I am not so much into quotes, but I kinda like this one from Les Brown. It obviously fits well with this photograph, and that is why it is titled Shoot for the Moon 😉
Wanted to share a different type of mountain landscape photograph to start the year. I shot this scene a few months ago during my regular fall trip to the Engadin region in the Swiss Canton of Graubünden. I liked how the fog seemed to be reaching for the moon, so I just had to capture this moment. Hope you like how it came out!
I captured the image with my new Nikkor 70-200mm f/4 lens on a Nikon D800E. The settings were: 135mm, ƒ/11, 1/25s and ISO100 and no filters were used.
I plan to go out and photograph more mountain landscapes with snow in the coming year. Keep an eye on our Swiss Landscape Photography portfolio for new work. Alternatively, have a look at our Recent Work page once in a while.
Click on the photograph if you would like to know more about this photograph or are interested in buying a print or licence of Shoot for the Moon.
Cheers, Johan 🙂
