Close Up and the Big Picture

25 Sep

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.
