Mountains everywhere @ WHPhoto!
The subject for our September meeting was Mountain Scenery and 36 images were submitted. Mountains from all over the world were represented, some complete with snow, lakes, canoes, rivers, glaciers, buildings and, of course, people to give an idea of the scale.
Photographing mountains means the photographer has to cope with a huge range of exposure from dark forest, to bright sky and almost pure white snow and ice. The depth of field often has to be long and the composition can be very tricky. The image needs to allow the viewer to see the mountain in the context of its surroundings and to understand the scale of the towering peaks.
Many of our images accomplished all these things brilliantly. Members chose Kevans ‘Meteora’ image of mountainous Greece, and Nick’s ‘Athabaska River’ and Geoff’s ‘Aprica Post’ were worthy runners up.
