Winter Kingdom by XavierJamonet Winter Kingdom by XavierJamonet
Hello!

Here is a picture taken last week in the french alps from the summit of Saulire in the valley of Meribel.
I liked how the way the sweet light illuminated the snowy mountains, under the dark clouds...

Canon 5DmkII - EF 70-200f4L

Awesome job here, I really like how the dark sky really overshadows the mountain range, and then fades into the foreground.

Well balance of light and darks there, I really am impressed at the gloom that the sky and clouds shadow down on the otherwise brightly contrasted mountain range and then blending into the foreground, awesome image dude, I hope to one day be able to capture an image as nice as this.

Almost seems like you used a TSE lens instead of straight 70-200. Looks soft near and far...but works very well. Great light :)

Merci beaucoup Myriam, c'est effectivement cette lumière, qui éclairait les nuages par dessous et se réfléchissait sur la neige, qui m'a donné envie de prendre cette photo.
