Travelers Tips and Stories about Mountain
More pictures, more inspiration, more experiences...
Imagine you are above the fog. Seeing the sun set. Then you turn around and see this. A mountain summit peaking out of the fog and catching fire. Goosebumps all over your body. And a refreshing feeling of joy and thankfulness filling up your body. This is Switzerland. This I can call my home. I really appreciate that a lot lately.
I took this picture only couple minutes away from my home. I am really grateful to find views like that so close. But before starting with photography, I just took it for granted and never really cared about the view. Glad that changed.
Another photo from my trip last autumn to the Eibsee. This time it is from really early in the morning when the sun was still behind the mountains, but there was absolutely no wind so I got a perfect reflection of the Zugspitze in the Eibsee. (My polarizer might have helped a tiny bit to improve it even more :))
The most dramatic photo of this sunrise: the sunrise itself. I really like this sunlight gradient from gray on the left to bright orange on the right. It was like that for just a minute or even less. And patches of fog. And the puddle, of course!
I captured this elderly couple as they passed us by during our hike in Roháče valley in West Tatras (mountains bordering Poland and Slovakia). Each year around the end of September (our tradition dates back to 2011) we cherish the opportunity to meet for 3–4 days with our mates and we travel from one hut to the other with our heavy backpacks. Of course each night we also drink local beers and play a tournament in a game of Liar’s Dice!
I was travelling through Iceland in the fall of 2016, we stopped at a volcanic crater called, Kerið, just before sunset. Iceland is a magical place in November. There is just enough daylight to stay sane (sunrise is around 9.30am and sunset around 4pm) but at the same time sun is always very low in the sky making every minute feel like golden hour. The last 30mins before sunset, which is when this photo was taken, was one of the most beautiful skies I have ever seen.
He used to be a farmer but his two sons have got him into being a tour guide, taking tourists up to the top of Ella Rock. On this four hour round trip, Ab has one drink of water and one cigarette and walks the fairly steep route in flip flops. Ab is 63. His favourite thing to do is to walk to the edge of a waterfall or cliff and pretend to fall off to scare Alice. Ab is a G.
After an hour of hiking, we set up our cameras at 2500m. Although we had expected to see the moon rise right above the mountains, clouds on the horizon delayed when we had our first glimpse of the red light. This was my first lunar eclipse photography session and I am afraid I may have been too enthusiastic about the photography. Next time, I’ll try to focus more on the actual experience!
