September Light by alexandre-deschaumes September Light by alexandre-deschaumes
This is a new I.D as well , during our last workshop in the alps , near 'courmayeur' . I just love this clear september after a fresh snow fall ... It was very cold by the way ( - 10 °c ) !

I've used the 70-200 F4 IS L for this one.

My first impression of "September Light" was an immediate desire to inspect it in greater detail.

To have a photograph of mountains is nothing new; to have a photograph of a silhouette is nothing new - and yet, together, they come together to form an image that evokes emotion and thoughts that would otherwise never appear.

I really enjoy the clouds in this image, and how they've been used to the advantage of making the photographer in this 'pop': without such a screen (as it were), some of the effect of the silhouette would be lost, especially against a more visually complicated backdrop of a mountain with an incomplete cover of snow. Furthermore, the way the clouds cover parts of the mountain also seem to amplify that, as well - combined with the shadows, it creates a very dramatic image that, whilst being simple on some levels, has a lot of visual impact.
What do you think?

What an absolutely amazing photograph, let alone a deviant ID. The scene on its own is breathtaking, of a standard that most of us aspire too but never achieve. the inclussion of yourself with your camera and tripod is for me just sheer genius and elevates this photograph to another level. For me it depicts what we all want to do, to be out there in nature and capture those moments of perfection for all to see. Excellent work Alexandre. Also early birthday wishes to you for tomorrow, I hope you have a wonderful day. Simon
