A few weeks ago I posted a colour version of the sunrise at Lake Sanetsch in Switzerland. This is the same sunrise with a slightly different composition and processed in black & white. This black & white mountain image is a 30 second exposure at f/16. Used a Lee ND1.8 (6-stop) filter and a Singh-Ray ND Grad (3 stop). Processed in LR3 and Silver Efex Pro. I used a long exposure to blur the waves and reflections a bit.
I have a series of images from that day and I am not sure yet if I prefer this long exposure version in B&W or a normal version (with reflection) in B&W. Make sure to check back in to see the latter pop up in a week or so 🙂
Lake Sanetsch can be found near Gsteig, Switzerland, just on the border between the cantons of Bern and Valais. The lake is located at an altitude of 2,034 meter (6,673 feet) and can be reached either by cable car or by car. This photograph was taken at around 8:05 am. In the background you are seeing the sunrise lighting up the Sanetschhorn (2,924m/9,593ft).
