Snow Light - BarbaraNichtern

The colors were strangely disjointed in the snow light
(Rainer Maria Rilke)

Snow is one of the most exciting and challenging projects in photography I´ve ever started.

Snow is on one color only, very limited in contrast. The conditions for shootings at an altitude of 2000 to 3500 m on the mountain are not comfortable at all.  
The entire mountain, in a moment, can be covered in clouds, strong winds may cause snow swirls making the otherwise clear mountain to appear blurry. The camera battery doesn't last 2 hours, lens full of small snow drops. Standing, walking, freezing; waiting. Waiting for "the" light and shadow". 

At the same time - I always feel it: the beauty of snow, the special power of the mountains.
The most moving thing to me is when my photos end up conveying some of that feeling.

Hope you can feel some of it as well.
