Swiss Alps behind Schwarzwald - Fujifilm X-T4, Fujinon XF 50-140 mm, ISO 320, f/8, 1/200s
It's been almost 9 months since I've last seen the Alps from close - thank you pandemic, I'm very grateful for that! Nevertheless it could be still much worse: I still live in the hills of Schwarzwald, I have great lights, various weather conditions, and a lot of nature. Despite being lucky to live here, I still take very precious the moments when the air is clear enough to see the Swiss Alps with all their robustness in a majestic way.
Yesterday we were hiking on and around the mountain called Belchen (1414m), and during the whole trail we were able to see the Alps so close, I felt we could touch them. Of course it was because of the morning rain scattered away to a windy and sunny day - as soon as the wind stopped, the humidity in air became dense and by the evening the beautiful sight has just disappeared.
Anyway, the hike was very nice, pleasant, gave a refilling to the upcoming days. Let's hope soon we'll be all able to visit the Alps from up close, or even climb the old peaks. Until then, here's some of my favorite shots from yesterday:
