On a cold winter day, the world gets very quiet. No sound, just wind, a very cold wind, moving through the branches of the tree. The world is frozen, silent.
At least it is, until the moment a crazy Swiss photographer appears on scene, singing Frank Sinatra’s “Summer Wind” on top of his lungs. I admit, the hikers I later met gave me quite a strange look. But hey, that’s me and my internal iPod. In summer when it’s hot I sing “White Christmas” to cool me down and in Winter, when my ears are numb of cold and the wind tries to turn me into an icicle, I’m all summer songs.
And it’s a lot of Frank Sinatra lately, when taking photos, when working on them at home and even now. But hey’s it’s all nice and easy, night and day and I do it my way 😉
The shots were taken with the monochrom, in very flat light. I used a yellow filter to get at least a bit of shading in the snow and exposed to the right, knowing I wanted these shots to have a very high key look later.
