Black and White Snowy Mountain Landscape
It is magical how the angle of light can change seconds to seconds. One moment it is a cloudless sky and the snow sparkles in the sun. Next it is overcast and long shadows form silhouette on the land below. Shadows and light. Mysterious and what appears as fluffy may soon be a danger to the unwary.
The land beckons. Snow capped mountains. Endless yearning. Nature enthralled.
Wish I am there!
Panorama Mountain Landscape in Winter
I was really planning to write a series of hiking articles but got so distracted by the snow effect on the blog. It is on hold for the moment and I will just focus on posting pictures for the week.
When the snow storm move in the valley, it is hard to take good pictures. Don’t you just hate it when you are going somewhere and the sun finally shines. There is only about 10 minutes before the bus leaves. So, snap, snap!
I never really see the details until now. Just notice the cable cars among the forest leading upwards to the chalet high up on the mountain top. The view from there must be spectacular. I want to be up there!
Hope the sun is shining, wherever you are!
Winter Gateway in Zermatt, Switzerland
Let it snow…let it snow…..
I am really wishing to be somewhere high in the mountains with snow flurries – solitude and peace.
Anyways, the above picture is a mountain landscape in Zermatt, Switzerland.
A gate, railings, post with danger signs are there for a reason. In the excitement of taking pictures, sometimes people forget about the danger. So, beware of the warning signs and wear warm clothings if going high up in the mountains. Most of all – have fun!
Till next time, wishing everyone a wonderful winter season!
I love winter even though I live in the tropics. Snow-capped mountains reflection on crystal clear lakes – so soothing for the soul.
While I love taking panoramic landscape pictures, it is often during close-ups that fine details are shown. This picture was taken at Niederhorn - Beatenberg, Switzerland. The wide angle shot highlight the cliff boulder against a backdrop of mountain while fog smothers the valley.
Upon close-up, amidst the foggy backdrop are wooden huts laden with snow on the rooftops – I like the ethereal effect.
By the way, the fog is a natural phenomena in Beatenberg.
