Sunny Snowridge Descent

There were not too many days of ultra-clear air this winter season yet, especially on the weekends. If the air doesn’t contain too much dust, haze or moisture, silhouettes are nicely encircled by a fringe of light when you shoot against the sun. This day was great to achieve this effect at approx. 3’600m / 11 800 ft near Gornergrat, Valais, Switzerland.

Hope you like my image!

  1. Your creative eye never misses a fantastic photo opportunity my friend! This is stunning and the slight halo of light that is cast in the sky is outstanding Wilfried Haferland !! 🙂

  2. Simple and wonderful. Many people attending the mountains may see a scene like this but not so many are able to obtain a picture like this…ops…that&39;s the reason because you&39;re a great photographer! Wilfried Haferland

  3. I have to get me some of that shiny toothpaste. :)) I also love the 2 runaway snow balls.

  4. Gornergrat, immer wieder eine Landschaft für grossartige Aufnahmen. Für&39;s Skifahren habe ich meist die Morgenstunden bevorzugt. Zur Vollsaison einfach zu viele Leute. Schöner Einfang Wilfried Haferland!

  5. Mykal Hall – Mate, you don&39;t know how much I appreciate your opinion! The 2 snowballs would have nearly caused not to post this image, but then I thought… hey, why not?! Btw, if I visit your wonderful country, I&39;ll bring some toothpaste ;-))) Thanks mate!

  6. Günter Schurr – Ja, weg von der Masse… 😉 Deshalb sind wir ja auch auf Skitour auf&39;s Stockhorn gegangen. Piste dann erst ab weiter unten genutzt. Danke Dir!!

  7. In my eyes the snowballs are leading lines so they add to the image mate.

  9. Mykal Hall – You&39;re absolutely right! From the beginning of your image-posting I&39;ve noticed that you always put some sort of visual line in your compositions… Thanks a lot and have a great weekend mate!!

  10. Amazing scene with this halo of light ! I also like the good balance between the white of the snow and the blue of the sky. Great composition my friend   🙂

  11. Super shot ( I don&39;t know how I could have missed it before ?)
    Great that you managed to shoot the 2 little snowballs that rolled down the slope, very subtle!

  12. Joan Munford – Thanks a lot, dear Joan! It&39;s so easy to miss posts as there are so many wonderful images here on G every single day… I&39;d wish to have much more time to enjoy at least half of them… 😉
