I love this kind of landscape. Love the mountains, the low clouds, the snow. The way things change visually in a matter of seconds… literally.
Moving with the wind, the clouds cover and uncover different parts of the landscape causing abrupt light changes, casting shadows everywhere and letting the light through at the same time.
I don’t have any experience about shooting on this kind of scenery and I had some problems figuring out where and how to measure the light.
My main problem was not getting a complete washed out white on the snow and clouds while keeping some detail on the other parts of the image.
These were all taken at -0.7 EV, ISO ranging between 800 and 1600.
The whole thing was developed at box speed for some extra harshness.
PS: I’m thinking about developing a system, for measuring light, which I already have a name for. I’ll call it the Zone System!
