Mountain photographers know that “good climbing weather” often is the opposite of “good photography weather”. No clouds, just blue sky. Well, there are several possibilities to make the best use of such a “good climbing weather” image. While post-processing, it was instantly obvious that color wouldn’t do here – but there are lots of different tones available, which add well to the silhouette style of this capture. I like this image because of the depth, it’s near-far-relationship.
This shot was made 10 minutes before reaching the summit of Rimpfischhorn, 4’199m. The backgroud features the highest mountain massif of Switzerland, the Monte Rosa group (left side). At the right edge, the Matterhorn is included. The climbing guy is Mr., acting once more as the human subject in one of my images. This image might be special as well to my friend who created many images of Rimpfischhorn already last summer.
I also updated my list of curators (thanks for your constant efforts), so I really hope that i don’t bother any ex-curators again ;-).
Thanks for reading, I hope you like my image!
