The mountains fascinate me. Majestic, powerful, foreboding, fun, beautiful – there are many ways to describe mountains. In 2013 I spent Easter weekend in the Bavarian Alps. I had previously only been there in the summer months, and it was (un)surprisingly a completely different world. The snow really changes the landscape and the mountains looked more beautiful than ever – when you could see them. It was cloudy most of the time, but the owner of the B&B said that if you drive through a certain pass to Grän, Austria, it would be less cloudy. She knew her microclimates because the mountains poked through the clouds and the sun did as well.
I took this with my zoom lens, which was fantastic for the mountains. At this point the clouds were fading away and gave a dreamy appearance. The snow makes it very bright, but I was still able to get this good snapshot. The picture came out rather blue, and I wasn’t able to adjust that in postprocessing. I shot this in jpg only, so that may be one reason I wasn’t able to correct.
