Monte Rosa - Dufour

While shooting this picture I was exactly on the border between Italy and Switzerland, on the Lyskamm ridge; however, I reached this place from the Italian side, so I included this pic in Italy!!

From left to right you see:
- Nordend (4609 m)
- Dufour (4634 m)
- Zumstein (4563 m)
- Gnifetti (4554 m)
- Parrot (4436 m)

Aquired with scanner, adjusted sharpness, contrast, brightness... but I didn't like the colour tone. It had a high blue cast (maybe due to the UV).
So I decided to transform it with a retro style...
Hope you like it.

P.S. the cloud is a typical lenticular cloud, due to the fact that the air moved by the wind rises high to overcome the mountain, chills, the moisture in it condenses. Then the air descends on the other side of the mountain, heats up again and the moisture evaporates again.

Hello Enrico,
So you are annexing some mountains!
Beautiful view of these majestic mountains reflecting a still intact world.

Hi Enrico,
I liked the mood of your photo a lot! I think your BW transform is a good choice. Beautiful view with a good focus and composition. Well done and TFS.

Hi Enrico,
Your mountian photos are all so spectacular. Most of mine are taken from the foot of a mountain, yours are all from the peaks. The different view you get by that is just awesome. I like the processing you did to this photo. It has created a nice atmosphere. It still shows the spot on exposure and the beautiful details.

Ciao Enrico, bellissimo panorama del Monte Rosa, mi piace molto anche l'agiustamento grafico, Bravo
Ciao Silvio

Ciao Enrico,
sono contenta di trovare un appassionato di montagna come me, anche ormai gli anni e la famiglia mi hanno fatto un po' appendere i ramponi e la piccozza. Ho comunque delle foto che condividerò volentieri su TN e che spero ti piaceranno. A me le tue piacciono molto.
Questa in particolare mi ricorda una brutta ma gloriosa giornata: il capanno Margherita, raggiunto in condizioni miserevoli (non scendo in particolari...), ma dal quale sono anche scesa senza creare il minimo problema ai miei compagni, nonostante la notte insonne. Alla fine mi sono sentita un'eroina. L'unica volta in vita mia che sono stata male in montagna, ma se penso a com'era stare lì e guardare giù...!
Grazie e alla prossima.
Ciao Violetta

I like Blk n Wht when it comes to snowcap mountains and winter. Well done tfs
