The story behind the image
Lake Goletta and the Granta Parei glacier
What supposed to be a day off, turned out to be a exhausting day filled with hiking at high speeds and dipping into an ice cold lake.
I don’t know how people can take a resting day and actually stay put while being in such beautiful location. I for one, can not handle it. As tired as I can be, I must discover more! Adventure calls and my exhausted legs will have to take in one more exploration hike… and then the next and so on. Resting at the Benevolo refuge was no option for me and so I went up the steep slope towards Lake Goletta with part of the group. It was a sunny day and some deemed it a good idea to have a swim in the iced lake. One-third of the way into the lake was enough for me and I focussed on capturing the beautiful lake with Granta Parei Glacier and mountain in the background. I grabbed my 10-stop ND filter and got a 30-second exposure which gave me exactly what I wanted.
This photo was taken in the late in the afternoon after an icy meeting with the water.
