Top Ten in the CLOUD COVERED MOUNTAINS CHALLENGE in the MOUNTAINS ACROSS the GLOBE group.

Eiger (3970m) is the easternmost peak of the world-known Swiss Alps’ tripartite Eiger, Mönch, Jungfrau. Eiger’s Nordwand (North Face) is a dream (or night mare) to many climbers. This photograph shows its cloud-wrapped upper part as seen from Schynige Platte late in the afternoon.

Canon EOS 300X, Sigma 28-135. Post-processing: retouch, noise reduction, sharpening, tonality adjustment, B&W conversion.
