Hey all! Just came back from my annual hiking trip with my father. This year it was all about the swiss alps. Our shedule was like the following:
We hiked from Bergün to a lodge called „Keschhütte“ and stayed there for a night. This was the best chance to do some astrophotography, a topic I am not really used to but for my first time I think I did okay. But at this conditions, you really can’t do any wrong. It was about 4:45am in the morning (or night?) and about -10 degrees and with headlamps attached we started our hike to Lake Lai Da Ravais. It was so cold I barely couldn’t press the shutter but it was magical. We made it there just in time and it was the first time I was more impressed with the “blue hour” than the “golden hour”. The moment before the sun showed up was all about mood. I also came to the conclusion that landscape photography is all about just being there. Something i tend to forget when I am at home watching youtube videos of other photographers.
On our second day we took the last ropeway to the top of the Jakobshorn and hiked to the final peak to have the best possible view for our photos. We waited there for about a 1 hour til sunset and whoever created this planet sent us one hell of a sunset. The sky literally exploded that day. The next day we did a walk through Monstein and Zuegenschlucht which is a pretty impressive canyon. But enough talking, here are some photos!
Oh. Gear! Our guilty pleasure I guess, let’s talk about gear. I had my beloved X-T2 with me and as far as lenses go I went with the 16mm, 50-140mm (yes, I hiked with that! 30km/20miles!) and the 27mm). I had 6 batteries with me and I think I needed 2 of them? I was quite impressed, especially when I think about how cold it was. Well done Fuji! So let’s get started with the pics!
Edit: Be sure to check the replies to this post, since I am a new user I only can attach 5 photos per post, so make sure to check out the other posts for seeing the swiss alps in all its glory!
If you have any questions just let me know, I would love to hear them! If you are interested in my work and would love to see more, you can find me on Instagram where I will be posting more and more photos from my hiking trip through the swiss alps.
All the best,
