In the mountains

After the yesterdays city photo, how about we go back into the nature with the today’s one. I went back into my huge photo library (my Lightroom catalog show that it’s over quarter million, exactly 276 733 photos :)) and selected a photo I took under the Matterhorn in 2014. Funny how it still feels like only yesterday.

This is a single exposure, edited in Lightroom and Photoshop. It’s takne in the area round Matterhorn in the Swiss Alps. Matterhorn is a bit to the left of this view.

In the mountains, Zermatt, Alps, Switzerland

Mountain town in the Alps

I almost forgot how many years already passed from my trip to Zermatt in Switzerland. I was there in the autumn of 2014. How the time flies. But today I will look back with a new photo, not directly from Zermatt, but from a town on the road to Zermatt. This is, if I’m not mistaken, the town of Stalden. It must be quite nice to live so in the mountains, I would just not want to try to go anywhere during the winter :)

This is a two shot vertorama, combined in Lightroom, finished in Photoshop. Actually, I did not take this as a vetorama, as at that time I did not do so many of them, but since I used the same settings for both photos, I just combined them anyway :)

And here are few details:

Removing dust spots

In some photos you just have many dust spots. Especially if you use a smaller aperture, you will see every little spot on your lens. If you want to know how to see all the spots in your photos, check out my guide on that topic here.

Mountain path in the Alps

Let’s continue with another older photo. This one is also from 2013, when I visited Zermatt in Switzerland, under the Matterhorn. This was a little mountain path that was going down to the town from under the mountain. Not that I went down the whole way. Since I had only little time, I had to use the cable car.

Contrast in videos

Lucerne waves in Plotagraphy ProI noticed that when I share plotagraphs as mp4 videos, they look differently depending on where I play them.

For instance, on Instagram or in Opera browser, they have much more contrast, while in my media player or in Edge, they look as they should. I tried to look if one can embed the color profile as in images, but no luck finding a way. Any of you maybe know one? For now I started to lower the contrast a little in the source images, directly in Plotagraph Pro, but thats not really a great solution.

The Lucerne waves in a plotagraph

I just love how the motion in the waves worked out. It just a perfect spot for adding movement into the photos. What do you think?

(if you are on a mobile or use an old browser, you may only see a static image)

Interesting place for a restaurant this was, right at the water in the middle of Bern. Makes for a nice atmosphere, but the noise is probably not that welcome :)

This is a single exposure, edited in Lightroom and Photoshop. I used a 10 stop ND filter here.
