Jekyll & Hyde

By CathyI  
This was taken about 18 months ago on a brilliant trip to the Tyrol - it was August and one morning we woke up to about 30 cm of snow on the tops! We spent all day out walking and shooting... We got incredibly sunburnt, but it was well worth it!

The title more or less suggested itself because of the extreme contrast between the tiny buildings nestling in the alpine meadows and the snowy, craggy summit in the swirling clouds... Smile

Technical details:
Exposure: ISO 200, 1/400th sec. @f16
PS Elements: contrast and saturation increased in the original colour file before converting via the "convert to B&W" function with "scenic landscape" settings, contrast increased again, cropped to panoramic format. Sharpened/bordered/framed.

I like this a lot, especially the contrast of the harsh, rugged mountain against the fertile valley below. Excellent.
