Mount Colon | Valais | Switzerland

Last weekend, I spent three nights at Europe's highest wild camp site at 1900 m MSL. For two days, we were blessed with perfect hiking weather and spent our days hiking up the valley to Aiguilles Rouges (2965m), Pas de Chêvres (2991m) and Col de Riedmatten (2925m).

For our last morning in Switzerland, we scheduled a sunrise shoot of Mount Colon, hoping for it to be illuminated in a warm red tone. Well, as you can see that did not work out but instead Mount Colon decided to say goodbye to use by revealing himself for a last time for 30 seconds, as we were standing in between two walls of fog from both sides of the valley. I did not have much time to take the shot, so I took handheld HDR brackets. Still to me, the cloud patterns are amazing!
