About the Image(s)

The Alpe di Suisi plateau (elevation 5,600ft) is the largest high-altitude Alpine meadow in Europe and is accessed by gondola. Numerous rifugios or mountain huts are dotted all over the plateau with Sassolungo, the highest mountains in the South Tyrol at ~10,500ft providing a dramatic backdrop.

Captured in infrared on a converted Panasonic Lumix G3 with the Lumix 12-32mm lens set at 25mm (35mm equivalent 50mm), f8, 1/200 sec, ISO160.

Converted to true monochrome in SEP2 and refined on a Shadows/Highlights layer. Further adjustments were made on a series of Curves adjustment layers, some masked. As usual this jpeg was sharpened using the High Pass filter in Soft Light mode and sharpening halos removed where necessary.

Another superb landscape.

The mountains are amazing .
The sky is very effective indeed.

And then the buildings tell us the Alpine location so well.

Simply super work.   Posted: 01/08/2020 16:24:23

Beautiful landscape Peter. The mountains are crisp, the sky stunning and as usual with foreground layers that lead the eye to the mountains.   Posted: 01/10/2020 15:20:40
