~ The dark, dreary and gloomy set of imagery from Switzerland continues with this view into Haslital.

It finally started to rain that day. I just love the fact that the land interacts with the sky in such a way that tiny holes in the clouds pop up and disappear all within the span of a couple of minutes. You just don't have these conditions in my home country. The Netherlands' tallest mountain is 321 meters above sea level and we don't even own all of it. We share it with both Germany and Begium. There isn't much earth-sky interaction going on at that height. It's more of a hill really. And yet they call it a mountain... A mountain!

Tech and disclosure. This is a false colour panorama and an excercise in colour grading. There's a bluish grad filter pulled down from the top, and grey has effectively been replaced with orange. I've watched closely to the opening title of "The Desolation of Smaug" for this one and really want to pursue this "Tolkien-meets-Peter-Jackson-style" further in the near future to see where it will take me and my work.

Photography (as in pressing the shutter button) is really just capturing data for me. When I get home and view the exposures, a certain sense of being there arises again. But now it's intermixed with all these feelings, emotions and memories which I try to all inorporate into the final piece.

I hope you enjoy this as much as I do.

Bänzlauistock, Haslital and Bättlerhoren. Shot near Inertkirchen, Berner Oberland, Switzerland. Thanks for looking.
