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.

This is a single exposure, edited in Lightroom and Photoshop.

I don’t really like to have a white sky in my photos. But here the only other choice was to make the sky grey, and I really preferred to not have that. The day I took this, under the Matterhorn in Alps, most of the sky was covered by huge clouds, so no change for any real detail there, even with HDR. But I did like the reflection, so I edited this photo anyway :)

This is a single exposure, edited in Lightroom and Photoshop.

I hope for a good weather this week. No rain, and no crazy desert style sunshine. Something like I had the day I took this photo under Matterhorn would be great :)
