Shining Mountain

by Stefano Sala

The river in the image is one of the branches of the Rhine, one of the most important rivers in Europe. This valley is often covered by strong winds. Using a long exposure was possible to obtain an effect of movement of clouds, that looks like rays emanating from the mountain. Rheinwald (GR) - Switzerland
Equipment: Canon EOS 5D MkII + EF 17-40mm f/4L + Lee Big Stopper & 0.9 GND

As an amateur photographer, I can't spend my time shooting as a professional, but I enjoy the freedom to choose the subjects that caught my eye, without any conditions from thirds. I love landscape photography and I go out, most of the time in my country (Switzerland), searching interesting scenarios and trying to catch them in their best light.

Stefano, I certainly would rank you as a professional with that photo.
It is exquisite in my eyes…you’ve captured what reflects great strength
and grandeur…something awsome to contend with. Great shot.
