How to shoot gorgeous pictures above the clouds, against the sun, at -15°C

artborghi-santis-overthecloud-2

The Säntis (Switzerland) cablecar brings you above the clouds after an impressive climb along its massive glacier. To survive on Alps in winter you should not forget what I forgot:

- sun glasses
- sun cream
- thin warm gloves

About photo gears, I was the only photographer up there without

UV filter
polarizer

I had them, but their profile is to high for my new lenses and give strong vignetting.

Despite 5 of the most important points were not respected, I had plenty of battery, three different light meterings to test and several memory cards. This (and HDR and photo retouch) helped to have material for this new artborghi gallery on flickr.com : click it and enjoy the show!

Additionally, you can give a look to the panorama pictures made out of this gorgeous Alpine day by clicking here

    Unbelievably awesome! It’s sad you didn’t have the polarising filter! Would you mind sharing the EXIF?

      I did not remove EXIF data..so you should easily read it on the right column when you open the flickr set. Having with me only a polarizer with vignetting forced me to try with different light metering. I do not know if I would have got better results with a polarizer. I will anyway look around for a low profile polarizer..any suggestion based on your experience?
