Sundown is always a magical time of day, more so in the mountains when in the space of half a minute the light radically changes. I had come down early off the ski slopes on this particular day and caught this moment from the edge of Zermatt. It’s a moment that captures people’s imagination. I wasn’t the only one to pause and watch as the last rays of the sun were extinguished.
The image is almost monochromatic (in colour) but when I converted this to the greyscale I was disappointed with the results. The image lost part of its appeal – it felt too cold, and the mid tones had a muddied look to them.
That’s my opinion, maybe you think differently?
