Hi all!

As you can see, this was my way to start the new year. It was a beautiful winter day, very cold, but wonderful weather. That day I went up by ski to the summit of the Piz d'Emmat Dadora (2850m) in the Kanton of Graubünden. Half way, there is a kind of plain that contains a little lake. The snow covered stones, rocks and tree trunks and together with the interplay between the sun and the shadows I began to dream...

Kind regards

Hi Markus

I would say that one magnificent way to start the year :)
I wish i had such a beginning of my photographic (and maybe even spiritual) year.

This is a very moody shot, with gentle lights and soft shadows, with lines and curves that describe a hidden part of nature. I like seeing these kinds of abstracts, but in this case, i would love to see a wider, view too, reading your description of the spot. I think such a place - with a mountain lake like that - makes an outstanding photographing place all year long :)

Cheers and TFS

Dream of white and blue, of light and shadows - impressive show. When I saw a preview it seemed to me that I see a big fish of a dolphin in the sea, but then I saw your name and understood that I see a snow.

Hello Markus,
This is a beautiful composition with light and shadows displayed!
excellent exposure and focus in the shot that brings beautiful colouration all round!
a very pleasing presentation of winter scenery

Hi Markus

Great shot - beautiful tones and shadows. You have a very skilled eye.


Hi Markus. it does look like the head of some mythical, elegant creature asleep and dreaming. The texture rendition is superb and the colour gradations most pleasing to the eye. Well seen. Regards. Klaudio.

Hi Markus,
verging on the sublime here my friend... Beautiful. I can imagine the silence ringing in your ears...

Hi Markus!
You made an extraordinary composition, and seems almost drawn - but then you see the pattern of the snow in the center...
Anyway it needs a minute for me trying to determine sizes.
I think the lights are more important here than the snow itself, witch I like very much. Thank you for sharing!

Best regards,

Magnifique, j'adore, comme c'est sobre, riche et impressionnant toute cette neige blanche avec ses reflets bleus.

Hi Markus, when I saw that picture, I thought "Oh, this is what he means". Yes, this is a great picture, absolutely superb. I love the softness in it, the very subtle changes of bright light to shadow... so smooth and soft. Keep on exploring it, you're a master of the snow! I'm almost shy to have tried to imitate you but I know I will try again! You're an inspiration!

Hello Markus

A wonderful artistic shot!
Wonderful use of lighting.The colours are very good.
Well composed .
Very good POV.


Hallo Markus,
Au ja, das ist phantastisch! Ein Skifahrer rastet aus, wenn er so etwas sieht. Aber Du zückst die Kamera, wir danken Dir dafür! Ein Meisterschuss, Ansel Adams hätte Freude an Dir!
Beste Grüsse

Hi Markus ,
Nice shot with lovely composition.
light is great too.


Gruezi Markus,

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. This beholder leans back and sees a snowgoose in this bute!

Excellent capture of Nature imitating Nature.
The interaction of light and dark is gorgeous.


Hello Markus. This is such a dreamy shot. Excellent play with light and shadow bringing out this stunning image. Thanks for sharing and best regards. Jusni
