It's a big world...

Another photo from my recent Alps trip. Shot from one of the last slopes before the climb to the summit, looking down on the col between Mont Maudit (seen to the left) and Mont Blanc (behind me).

Canon 5D, EF17-40mm f/4 L, polariser, f/8, 1/125, iso50. Merge of 3 photos, all hand-held (I've enough with the camera, let alone a tripod!).

All comments etc. welcome; feel free to speak your mind.

Re: It's a big world...

Thanks Ben. It's one of my favourite places in the world - just can't get enough of stunning scenery like that. It's also quite peaceful, despite the hundreds of climbers around the place.
I have the camera to thank for the exposure - it was on auto at this point because gloves made it to slow to work the controls and I can't see exposure info in the eyepiece with my Cat 4 glasses on! Just have to trust my Canon and RAW processing
Incidentally, I only had to make a very small curves adjustment to grab a little contrast; no massive amount of PP time on this one...

Beautiful shot. I love how the mountains just seem to go on forever.

Thanks NNYorkie! It looks as though they go all the way to the horizon, but when you see the whole range (as you can from the summit), it's a surprisingly small area.

Re: It's a big world...

Jon, Soumen; thanks for the kind words. It was the mountains that started me in photography and it's a particular specialism I'm working on, so it's very nice to hear good things about my mountain photos.

Andy
