Even from the car park of the rosenlaui gorge, you can take amazing telephoto images of the jagged peaks above the forests.

This is a panoramic image from above the Rosenlaui Gorge, near Meiringen, Switzerland. The mists and rain gave a strong atmospheric, almost ethereal quality to this scene, with the jagged spires curling like a hand or claw; held up to protect some diabolical gift, while a crow-like alpine chough flew past.

My contribution to Location Scout starts to spread across the world map as I'm increasingly spending more time as a professional landscape photographer. Follow me and my latest work and travels here:

Photography Tips

Telephoto lenses. They compress perspective and work wonders through moderate foggy conditions as they increase the moody atmosphere of such images. That's because there's more particulate in the air that the light coming in the telephoto has to travel through, as opposed to wide-angle lenses.

These lenses are also great for panoramas like I've done with this image. Be sure to overlap these exposures well enough, though, or you might bring home a panorama that's more of a Swiss cheese than a Swiss landscape.

Travel Information

Great parking opportunities. Be sure to come here during the melting season. You're ahead of tourists and makes for a stunning walk into the gorge as well.
