This is the famous Eiger mountain in Grindelwald, Switzerland, (Eiger peak far right), and you're looking at the north face of it, which is widely known as being responsible for claiming many many lives of climbers due to it's near vertical face.
Taken early in the morning.
Awesome - where were you looking at this from? I was in Saas Fee not two weeks ago, had some stunning sunrises...
Thanks James, even though after having a quick look at your portfolio it makes me feel like the photographic equivalent of pond life !! Superb stuff, really superb.
Anyway, to answer your question, it was taken from my hotel room balcony in Grindelwald early in the morning just after my Son woke us up at 6:oo am ;o(
So, I'm off now to vote for just about every pic in your PF !
Wouldn't have thought so from the shot - a lovely panoramic photograph and well managed - love the blues of the sky and the way that reflects into the rocks.
Thanks for the comments/votes on the p/f - every time anyone leaves a comment it's a really encouraging feeling, and I hope I can keep up a decent standard so people keep checking back!
As James says, this is a very well-handled pano with a nicely balanced composition. One of your best shots to date, I'd say.
Wow. Thanks a lot James/Jools. Kind words indeed and very much appreciated, especially coming from you two guys who have such fantastic PF's. The funny thing is that I would certainly never ever have thought that it was one of the best I have taken. Far from it. It was a bit of a desperate upload to be honest, because I couldn't think of which other image to upload. Normally similar images of mine are archived off into the dusty corners at the back of my hard drive, never to be seen again. Just shows that "maybe" I have way more to learn about what works and what doesn't. Looks that way.
This shot has good impact - mountains can often lose their sense of scale. The lighting here demonstrates their enormity. Well done!
