PlusOneCollection III - Moiry Glacier Sunset

I selected this colorful image for #PlusOneCollectionIII, first published in my blog: http://haferlandphotography.com/moiry-glacier-sunset/ . For me, this photo represents pure alpine color which is so much different from what the mid-day sun brings up.

I did not do much posting this year but I'm sure I can catch up soon. Lots of high alpine images are waiting to be published.

Thanks for those of you who liked this image as I first posted it, and if you didn't see it yet: I hope you like it!

Blue Lava Lakes

For those who visited Iceland it's obvious: The location of this image is the Blue Lagoon / Bláa Lónið. While most tourists head for the Lagoon for a swim, preferably on rainy days, I visited this spot for long exposure photography.

The light blue color of the water is a product of the high concentration of silicic acid. The fact that the bottom of the lake is white colored by the natural chemical debris adds an even lighter appearance.

Of course it was rainy that day, and of course the wind was more than light. These conditions limited creativity a bit. I decided to shoot low angles in order to rise the tripod not too much. As the windy rain went reliably into one direction with only little variation, I was stuck to shoot this single direction to avoid rain drops on my filters. However, I was surprised of the still resulting overall sharpnessof... more »

Water Hills Skeiðarásandur, Iceland

Published in my blog: http://haferlandphotography.com/water-hills-skeidarasandur-iceland

Glaciers melt, and the melting water has to go somewhere. It has to make its way from the glacier's ends to the sea, and as this is a journey without much difference in elevation, the water flow covers broad areas of soft lava rock fields. This results in wide estuaries or alluvial plains which are sometimes hard to pass. Several people wrecked their jeeps by trying to do so.

I was fascinated by the row of equally shaped wave tops of this melting water flow. It contained much mud and gave the waves a unique surface structure. Interesting thing was that these wave tops moved slowly forward during this long exposure, resulting in a different shape than it appeared to the viewer's eye. The water color was not too appealing (neither thela... more »

Climbing Dent du Géant

Published in my blog: http://haferlandphotography.com/climbing-dent-du-geant

I love my Swiss mountains, but sometimes it's nice to go somewhere else. The Chamonix region offers a lot, and I know french climbers who do not go anywhere else.

After climbing the Rochefort Ridge a time ago, +Daniel Arndt and me decided to climb Dent du Géant. This peak is a giant 4'000 meters needle, as you can see by the shadows down left. Climbing there is sometimes near to vertical, and the way down is really vertical: Abseiling only, sometimes overhanging.

The guy on shown here managed to reach the start of the climb a bit earlier than us, resulting in a 45 minutes waiting for us to enter the climb. 

However, it was a great experience to climb this mountain, and the view was magnificent. In the background you can see Aiguille duMidi... more »

Little Emerald Gorge (Iceland)

Published in my blog: http://haferlandphotography.com/little-emerald-gorge-iceland

Today I start to post the first image of my recent short-trip to Iceland. There are so many great images posted here on G+, I'd like to mention my friend +Dominique Dubied as a superb example as well as +Tim Vollmer and +Joe Azure.

As a high alpine photographer I'm used to shoot with a limited choice of gear, under time pressure and generally rough conditions inherent with high altitude regions. In Iceland, many great spots seemed very accessible to me, some are even reachable within a 50 meters range from the parking ground of your car. This fact inspired me to seek for little gems which are less travelled, "harder" to access and sometimes quite hidden. So I'm not sure if I will present images of the Top 10 spots of this beautifuli... more »

"Good Climbing Weather"

Published in my blog: http://haferlandphotography.com/good-climbing-weather

Mountain photographers know that "good climbing weather" often is the opposite of "good photography weather". No clouds, just blue sky. Well, there are several possibilities to make the best use of such a "good climbing weather" image. While post-processing, it was instantly obvious that color wouldn't do here - but there are lots of different tones available, which add well to the silhouette style of this capture. I like this image because of the depth, it's near-far-relationship.  

This shot was made 10 minutes before reaching the summit of Rimpfischhorn, 4'199m. The backgroud features the highest mountain massif of Switzerland, the Monte Rosa group (left side). At the right edge, the Matterhorn is included. Thec... more »

Clouds Over Maloja

Published in my blog: http://haferlandphotography.com/clouds-over-maloja/

Selected as one of the 8 TOP Google+ Photographs for July 3 by +Jarek Klimek - http://www.photoextract.com/plus-extract/2013/7/3

It's been a while since my last post, more than 4 weeks already. Time to catch up. As most of you noticed, the spring weather in central europe was a bit difficult. The result for me was much less outdoor-activities high up in the mountains. So I've selected an image I made a while ago.

Lake Sils ("Lej da Segl" in Romansh language of eastern Switzerland) is a wide lake at approx. 1'800m amsl, near the mountain pass of Maloja. This lake is frozen until mid-June and gets back its ice-cover already in October. We used the remaining time for a very nice LE shooting in the evening, frozen fingers included. The typical... more »

Moiry Glacier Sunset

Published in my blog: http://haferlandphotography.com/moiry-glacier-sunset/

Selected as one of the 7 TOP Google+ Photographs for May 29, 2013 by +Jarek Klimek - http://www.photoextract.com/plus-extract/2013/5/29

Today I feel for something bold ;-). As you know, colors can be very intense at day's end. Due to the highly reflective snow up in the mountains, the light colors are a bit amplified. So not much work in post...

Contrary to the vast majority of my mountain images, I created this image of Les Bouquetins and Mt. Grand Cornier from a very cosy place, the Swiss Alpine Club's Moiry Hut. What a luxury! This hut is perfectly situated and reachable without much stress. In other words, it's a superb place for a photowalk. We announced such a photowalk already last year in the agenda of the +Swiss Photography Club G+, butd... more »

Selected as one of the 9 TOP Google+ Photographs for May 8, 2013 by http://www.photoextract.com/plus-extract/2013/5/8 - Thanks +Jarek Klimek!

This snowy ridge leads "down" from Piz Bernina after the ascend via the famous Bianco Ridge. For many alpinists it's the choice for ascent and descent as well, but if you can, enter Grison's highest peak via Bianco Ridge. However, the ridge shown here is tasty as well.

You notice the two tracks in the foreground, melting into a single one later on: It's a passing-by-area. Too often you're stuck on narrow ridges 'cause of other alpinists and have no chance to pass them - here you have ;-).

I really liked the track, following the distinct wave form of the snow. It was a real pleasure... more »

Storm Over Zinalrothorn

Published in my blog: http://haferlandphotography.com/storm-over-zinalrothorn/

The mountain Zinalrothorn is one of my favourite peaks of the Swiss Alps. It's a very spikey and elegant peak (when seen from its northern or southern side) at 4'221m / 13 848ft. I was lucky to summit this wonderful mountain together with +Daniel Arndt in summmer 2009. The whole trip took us 16 hours from the mountain hut and retour that time, we started a little late and got stuck by several "traffic jams", caused by other alpinists. All regular routes to its summit are long ridge climbs, so you should watch the weather well: In case of an approaching thunderstorm, there is absolutely no escape.

Watching the weather is mandatory for all hig and long climbs. We witnessed this beautiful but strong Foehn storm over Zinalrothorn from the summit ofW... more »

Sunny Snowridge Descent (view large)

Published in my blog: http://haferlandphotography.com/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!

Frozen Snow Waves

Published in my blog: http://haferlandphotography.com/frozen-snow-waves/

Selected as one of the 9 TOP Google+ Photographs for March 27, 2013 by +Jarek Klimek - http://www.photoextract.com/plus-extract/2013/3/27

Let's go a little abstract today: The winter ascend to a mountain near the Gotthard pass in Switzerland leads to a frozen lake at approx. 2'600m / 8585 ft, directly beneath a glacier. I really like those mountain lakes in wintertime as they offer a field of generally unspoiled snow in an otherwise rough and rocky environment.

What attracted me most about this lake was the frozen snow waves. Formed entirely by steady winds, they add perfectly to the banks of this lake. I've chosen a rather narrow view here to work out the shadows and the light on these waves and to follow the lines they offered.

Emerald Lakes Macun

Published in my blog: http://haferlandphotography.com/emerald-lakes-macun/

The 20 lakes of Macun are protected as a National Park of Switzerland. There are times when walking through this wonderful landscape is not permitted, e.g. when the summer season ends. It was a great opportunity to visit this place in summer - and get fresh snow as well. In general, few snow on alpine meadows generates visual clutter. Here, the clutter is very even, so it adds a certain structure to the landscape. 

Some of my best friends here on G+ know this image already from my early posting days, but this one features a slightly different processing and framing.

Hope you like it!

Piz Buin Snow

Published in my blog http://haferlandphotography.com/piz-buin-snow/

Lots of people know the name “Piz Buin”. This is mainly because of the sun protection brand of the same title. In fact, it’s the name of a mountain with a Swiss side and an Austrian side. I have the impression that the Swiss side is climbed by fast climbers in very small groups while the Austrian side is entered by large groups of less experienced people on a single rope (I wrote about country-specific differences before; this seems to be one of it: https://plus.google.com/108665887827650124203/posts/LQwTyuQFWqf). Piz Buin has a summit elevation of 3’312 m / 10 866 ft, being climbed in winter and summer. If you go in spring, make sure you choose the nice couloir between the “little” and the “big” Piz Buin ;-), it’s highly recommended!

Well, this image of Piz Buin andadjacent peaks wa... more »

Snowy Ridge Steps

Published in my blog http://haferlandphotography.com/snowy-ridge-steps/

Selected for 9 TOP Google+ Photos for February 6 http://photoextract.com/plus-extract/2013/2/6

Winter is blue. Well, a little white sometimes, but the absence of plants in higher regions makes for a lack of "standard colors". I love that. Especially in mid-winter season, we have a strong sun and a bit of haze in thin air. This produces a very special atmosphere of "all things blue".

Ascending in winter means to go up by ski as far as possible (or reasonable). If you can't ski down certain passages, you have to leave the skis below the summit. Just like here: The last steps followed a rather fluffy snow ridge to the summit cross. To give the whole composition a scale, I placed the first steps prominently in the frame. The winter haze in... more »

Halo above Austria

Published in my blog http://haferlandphotography.com/halo-above-austria

I like halos, and in the mountains you can see them sometimes in different appearances. This is a typical halo caused by the icy cloud type cirrostratus. The sunlight is reflected by zillions of tiny ice crystals, and as these clouds are stratus clouds (horizontal layering with a uniform base), the layer is quite homogenious. This helps to bring up the full ring of reflection. Additionally, this type of cloud signalizes an approaching warm front bringing rain in the next few hours.

I was lucky the terrain let me change my position to center the halo and the sun to the 2.5 meters high summit cross. The mountains you see below are mainly austrian, on the right side you can see the distant Säntis.

Hope you like my capture!

From time to time a little "thank you" is nice. Especially when we get used to things. No, I don't mean all the photographers who are selected by Jarek and may get used to it. We all are used to enjoy a fine selection of photographs day by day, and this is because of the effort +Jarek Klimek does. So, thank you Jarek!

LAUBERHORN SKI WORLDCUP RACES
+Swiss Photography Club G+ Photowalk

On January 19, 2013 the +Swiss Photography Club G+ organized a photowalk at the well known Ski Worldcup Lauberhornabfahrt. Weather was better than expected and we had a few great opportunities to shoot the racers.

Many of you know that I'm extremely into high alpine landscape photography, but from time to time, I like to shoot action. This photowalk was ideal to do that.

The walk was a co-organization of +Fabrizio Vignali and me. Many thanks Fabrizio! I'd like to thank +Marianne Liniger, +Agnieszka Hollinger and +Mark Hollinger for coming, and sorry to all who couldn't make it this time. See you next time guys!

I'm sure +Klaus Binder, +Paul Turkowski and +Dalibor Pačić might like this as well ;-)

Morning Light over Monte Rosa

Published in my blog: http://haferlandphotography.com/morning-light-over-monte-rosa

Selected by +Jarek Klimek for the 9 TOP Google+ Photographs for January 17: http://www.photoextract.com/plus-extract/2013/1/17

Swiss children learn in school at least two facts about single mountains in their country:

1. The mountain “Dom” is the highest mountain located entirely located in Switzerland. It is 4’545 m / 14 911 ft.

2. The mountain “Dufourspitze” is the highest mountain which stands partly on Swiss territory. It is 4’634 m / 15 203 ft.

The rocky peak shown here is “Dufourspitze”, seen in August 2008, at 4.55 am, from the “Signalkuppe” at 4’554m / 14 940 ft. I had the chance to visit “Dufourspitze” in spring 2011, ascending by ski and climbing the W – ridge. It was an overwhelmingexperience which I already ho... more »

Wintertime - Aletsch Glacier

Published in my blog http://haferlandphotography.com/glacier-at-wintertime/

I visit the Big Aletsch Glacier each and every season. It’s not only one of the most impressive ones, it’s situated in the center of the Bernese Alps so it’s hard to avoid seeing this glacier. I’ve posted many different sights of this glacier, and as we have wintertime right now, a snowy image suits well. These two groups of alpinists are heading towards the south and are going down the glacier. It seems even here because at the Konkordiaplatz three glaciers combine to one, resulting in a more than 900 meters thick ice pack.

Hope you like it!

Allalinhorn, 4'027m / 13 211 ft (view large to spot 2 people)

Let me continue my Mountain Portrait Series:
The Allalinhorn is one of the easier accessible 4000m+ peaks of Switzerland. Cablecars take people from the village Saas Fee to top station Metro Allalin (3'457m) in some 30 minutes. The normal route is not too difficult - good weather provided. The Allalinhorn offers different ascends, one of the interesting ones is the Hohlaubgrat (ridge). When you're short on time, or got a hurting leg from your last climbing accident, the Allalinhorn is always there for you. By now, I visited Allalinhorn many times. Seen from Feechopf, even the "little" Allalinhorn has a majestic appearance.

Recently, my friend +Dalibor Pačić posted an image of the "bench", located right side underneath the peak. This is how it looks at breakfast time fromFe... more »

Ridge Climbing with Crampons and 500 m / 1 640 ft air below

Ridge climbing is one of the most elegant, logical and interesting ways to summit a mountain. While on the ridge, you enjoy magnificient views to the left and to the right, the rock's most solid on the ridge, the route is (in some cases) out of question. Of course, ridge climbing means sometimes climbing on the shadow side, the windy side, the rock is crumbly and fragile or simply a mess where you don't see any logical route to climb.

In this case, shortly after sunrise, we had to evade a sleek rock wall and to enter the shadow side of the ridge, so we got into snowy and icy conditions. With your crampons attached it's fun. Amazing how different alpinist's schools and habits appear in different countries. The Swiss alpinists (like us) are used to climb snowy rock with crampons, while the french alpinists... more »

High Alpine Color - Mt. Alphubel, 4'206 m / 13 799 ft

Light is everything. Being in the right spot is everything too ;-). This shot was made while climbing Mt. Täschhorn, 4'491 m / 14 734 ft this summer with +Daniel Arndt. On the first day we went up from Saas Fee to Mittel-Allalin by cablecar. To reach the Mischabeljoch-bivvy which is nested in the saddle of the rocky ridge below, we summited / traversed Feechopf and Alphubel. The way down from Alphubel to the bivvy lead via the distinctive, light separating ridge in the center of the image. Next day we summited Täschhorn and made our way down to Saas Fee.

I love those morning colors in the high alpine regions because of their bold blue-orange contrasts. Another nice thing: Being that high, you look down on literally everything, even on a 4'206 m / 13 799 ft peak. +Johan Peijnenburg picked this theme in his postea... more »

Ridge Climbing Bietschhorn, 3'934m, Valais

There are 4'000m peaks in the alps, and there are peaks slightly below the magical 4'000m line. The wonderful Bietschhorn belongs to the latter. A mountain being not quite 4'000m leads many people (and even alpinists) to the wrong conclusion that it's not worth to climb it. Totally wrong. Okay, well, if you've climbed most of the alps 4'000m + peaks, the pressure of filling your personal summit book has gone.

Bietschhorn is a very majestic mountain located between the Bernese Alps and those of the Valais. It's a long and high climb, taking about 13 - 15 hrs r/t. To me, climbing this mountain was a dream which came true. What I liked most about this climb was the persistant ride on top of the ridge. I hope this photo conveys this feeling a little!

First Snow Mt. Rote Wand in Austria, Vorarlberg

I love snow. Fall is a very nice time even in the mountains. The first snow is already there, but you can still climb on dry rock. This time we went to Austria, Vorarlberg, which is located in the east, seen from Switzerland. We don't know all the mountains there yet by their shape, but we are recognizing more and more. Austria is beautiful too, and I guess my friends +Paul Turkowski and +Stefan Lutz can confirm this :-).

The mountain "Rote Wand" is good for wall climbing in it's south side, but much more "alpine" from the north. It is 2'704m high and has a small glacier, therefore  it gets some snow and conserves it. Hope you like the first snow!

Axalp 2012 Live Fire Event - Super Puma Flare Dropping

This is the moment the experienced visitor of the Axalp Live Fire Event is waiting for when it comes to the Super Puma display: The drop of flares. As you might know, flares are part of the self-defense system of military aircrafts. Being an aerial countermeasure against heat-seeking missiles, they are pretty good for a show effect ;-)

Enough highspeed-jets posted, day 4 is for helicopters. These two Swiss Air Force Aerospatiale AS332M1 Super Puma helicopters display a nice water dropping aerial firefight scenario. I got a nice row of images of this demonstration, but it only makes sense within a fast slideshow ;-).

As written yesterday, this week I'll fill my Axalp 2012 album with shots. This is No. 2: In the background you see one of the two official visitor areas on Mt. Tschingel, and the Lake Brienz. This F-5E Tiger climbs up to my head for a canopy down pass. One second later he was already gone... I love that!

Axalp 2012 Live Fire Event - F/A-18 Canopy Down Pass / Roll

Most of you know my high alpine landscape photography work. Some of you know that I'm very much into everything fast which produces lots of  g-force :-).

(Nearly) every year in October the Swiss Air Force shows its capabilities in a live fire event, something quite unique in Europe. I love the precision of the pilot's flights and navigation between the mountains. 

After attending the event in the regular visitor's areas in 2010 (2011 was cancelled), I decided to hike up the 2'800m-peak above the theater. The jets perform an outstanding maneuver in flying directly to the summit of this peak, roll and dive down the valley behind the peak. This means you have them heading to yourself highspeed and passing you only some meters above your head...

Dent Blanche Morning Rise: Be There!

Selected by +Jarek Klimek for http://www.photoextract.com/plus-extract/2012/9/27

As you might have noticed, I love colors in the mountains. Of course, they are most rich in sunrise and sunset (sure), so "be there" is the key. Luckily, this is rather easy as all big routes demand you to leave the mountain hut or bivouac in the night. So the most challenging thing is to stop climbing when the sun tips the rocky ridges. Good time for breakfast!

This image was made during the climb of Dent d'Herens with +Daniel Arndt, showing Dent Blanche (4'357m / 14 294ft), Weisshorn (4'505m / 14 780ft) as well as the huge glacier flank of Dent d'Herens in the foreground.

See what I see (View large for details)

Most climbing images are seen from a distance, so let me present what the climber sees by himself. This image might be a small visual challenge as this view is rather uncommon. 

To keep reading short, this photo was made while ascending the last steep snow passage underneath the summit of Dent d'Herens 4'171 m / 13 684 ft. We are standing in the SW-face of this beautiful mountain. To those few people who are not familiar with alpine climbing ;-), you can see ice screws and other safety gear hanging down from my harness. Right side I placed my ice axe to keep my hands free for my camera (a D800E body in this case).

In the right lower corner you can spot +Daniel Arndt on the other end of our rope. Just the fact that you see no safety gear in the snow shows that the face is not as steep as the photo suggests, but I likedt... more »

Little Big Matterhorn

Thought you've seen enough images of the iconic Matterhorn already this summer? Not yet: Let me introduce the back side of this wonderfully shaped mountain, showing the Zmutt-Ridge (left) and the Lion-Ridge.

This photo was made while climbing the W-ridge of beautiful Dent d'Herens, 4'171 m / 13 684 ft. last weekend. The Swiss view to Dent d'Herens is mainly hidden by the Matterhorn, so this mountain is unknown to many people. Absolutely wrongly, because it is one of the most multifaceted peaks in the alps. It looks different from any angle, from any orientation. If you're summited the Zermatter Breithorn (Hi friends +Deborah Vos and +Johan Peijnenburg!) you can see it left to the Matterhorn, from Zmutt valley you have a view to the magnificient, even North Face, to be seen in the center of my photo.

The River (view large)

The first snow already covered the mountains in the alps (for a short time), so let me post another snow-free glacier image until the next snow blankets even the Big Aletsch Glacier.

This photo shows my favourite model coming from our Aletschhorn climb, walking down the Mittelaletsch valley. The Mittelaletsch valley is only accessible via glaciers and mountains. I really liked the visual compression of the scene, it doesn't reveal the width of the glacier which is 2 km / 1.25 miles. It also reminded me on a floating river, amplified by the colour of the ice. So let me sing "Going down to the river"...

Thanks!

Glacier Crossing (View Large)

Thank you +Jarek Klimek for selecting this one for
http://www.photoextract.com/plus-extract/2012/8/22 !

The Big Aletsch Glacier is the alp's largest glacier. After our recent trip to Aletschhorn (4'195m), we had to cross the Aletsch Glacier. It's a more than 2km / 1.25 mi long walk/climb through ice peaks and ice valleys. This glacier is so huge that it offers so many photo opportunities you could spend many days on it's surface. I did a lot ;-).

We discovered this beautiful stream in the center moraine of the glacier, only accessible with the proper equipment (crampons and ice axe, as you can see). So, unfortunately, we couldn't visit this one at the recent +Swiss Photography Club G+ Aletsch Glacier Photowalk last weekend with +Athena Carey, +Anette Mossbacher, +Christa Niederer, +Deborah Vos, +JohanPe... more »

Almost exactly 2 years ago I went to Moiry for a nice climb to Pigne de la Le. We expected dry rocks, but a summer snowfall changed conditions. We had a strong foehn wind, but the tour was nice anyway. Even nicer was the sky and the light, I had the impression of a ver dark atmosphere. Of course, I considered this while post-processing this image :-).

A few days after the Zermatt Photowalk of +Swiss Photography Club G+, +Daniel Arndt and me climbed Mount Täschhorn, 4'491m. Starting before sunrise, the alpinist photographer has the pleasure to catch first light first.

This photo was made at 5.57 am while climbing the SE-ridge of Täschhorn. Hope you like it, and don't miss all the wonderful matterhorn photos made at the Zermatt photowalk by my fellowphotographer... more »

July is high season for high alpine climbing - if weather permits. As this is rarely the case on weekends this year, you have to be flexible. Starting in Grindelwald, there is a nice climb up to Schwarzhoren, which features a short via ferrata.

The light was not perfect, but this scene looked quite interesting to me. The small dots below are two other climbers ascending the ridge. Blue sky is not interesting for photography, clouds are. But is"grey&quo... more »

Alpamayo (5947 m) at sunset, Cordillera Blanca, Peru

Be sure to click this link for the full immersive panorama experience: http://files.danielarndt.com/2012-Peru-Panoramas/pano-AlpamayoHC4/pano-AlpamayoHC4.html

This is what they call the "blue hour".  It's that special post-sunset light.  I had scouted this spot -- about 15 min uphill walk from the high camp you can see in the picture -- earlier in the day with the plan of being there for sunset.  However, the sun sets quickly in Peru and fast walking at that altitude is not an option.  So I arrived a bit late for the show...

The Big Aletsch Glacier is the largest Glacier of the Alps, some 24 km long and approx 900m thick at a maximum.

There are several spots where the glacier shows very different faces, on this one, it holds a small lake. I really like this place, and it's a good start for a walk on the huge glacier itself. The +Swiss Photography Club G+ organizes a photowalk on the glacier surface on August 18, 2012. However, thiswonderful spot ... more »

As you can see, in the mountains there is always some spring and some winter - it just depends on the altitude. Last weekend I had only one day for the mountains, so I didn't go far up in the winter region. Instead, I did a nice ridge-walk to Mt. Casanna, Grisons. I've seen this wonderful little lake from the summit and decided to go there and shoot it. It reminded me a little (just a little) of the wonderful country myfriend +Dominiqu... more »

In the mountains, making the right decisions means a lot. If they are wrong, it could have been your last trip at all. But "right" is always synonym to justifiable.

In the Mont Blanc area, you can ascend the huge Glacier des Bossons towards Mont Blanc and other peaks. You can ski down the same route back to the hut. Just be aware of a giant ice shield break-off zone far above your head, sending down towers of ice randomly. We decided to take anotherroute for the a... more »

Lee Wave Clouds

#PlusPhotoExtract by +Jarek Klimek
#SilhouttesOnThursday by +Siddharth Pandit

You know, I love the white and blue of high mountains and ice, and I love to do most of my photographic work up there. But I also like infrequent occurences, especially when beautifully colored. To give you a small break from my favorite color combination, let me share this not-so-alpine capture of evening Lee Wave Clouds. Hope you like it anyway!
