I took this Photo on a recent trip to the alps. It shows what is left of the Stein glacier illuminated by the Alpenglow.
While the light is pretty, I find the scene pretty sad. That glacier used to reach to the little pond in the middle of the image when I was born in 89. By now it’s melting so rapidly that the decay is obvious by just looking at this photo I took less than 4 years ago.
I hope you enjoy editing the photo, I found the mix of the low contrast areas in the shade and the high contrast created by the pink sun light quite the challenge. And jep, the focus is not exactly optimal - oh well.
