Wild Camping

A quick post, a bit late in the day, as I have spent quite a bit of time today putting the final touches to my new talk ‘High ‘n Wild with a Camera’ which is due for its first outing tonight at the Photographic Section of the Northants Natural History Society.

The image for today’s post (click it to enlarge for a higher quality image) is from Saas Fee in the Valais Alps. It was taken high up in early summer in an area where the snow covering had yet to clear. And here I chanced upon a small tent in the middle of nowhere just at the moment when the cloud cover miraculously parted to allow an all too brief shaft of light to illuminate this small space.

Sometimes you make your own luck, sometimes lady luck rewards you. On this occasion I felt rewarded handsomely

About LensScaper

Hi - I'm a UK-based photographer who started out 45+ years ago as a lover of landscapes, inspired by my love of outdoor pursuits: skiing, walking and climbing. Now retired, I seldom leave home without a camera and I find images in unexpected places and from different genres. I work on the premise that Photography is Art and that creativity is dependent on the cultivation of 'A Seeing Eye'. I'm not averse to manipulating images to produce derivatives that may sometimes be far removed from the original.

    What a great find Andy! The shot still had to be made though, and it looks really good.

    A lovely picture. I like the contrast between the sunlit snow in the foreground and the looming and threatening background. And I hope the talk went fine yesterday.
