Landscape Photo Competition 2017 No 6 : Entry Number 50

Judges Comment

This is a lovely monochrome, the dark rock contrasting so well with the snow, the clouds isolating the mountain top, great shot and what a place to be!

First of all I want to say thank you so much for that honor! My name is Juliane Thamm and I live in the very south of Germany which is perfect to live my mountain love. The shot was taken during an early winter tour and there were very very cold and icy conditions. Just beneath the top of our summit the clouds opend up and we had this great view to mountain "Hochstaufen". It has just 1.771 hm but it looks as if it is one of the biggest ones. I used a Nikon D7000 with a lens 16-80mm f2.8. The post processing was just the converting into black and with and a little adjustment of contrasts.
