    Sundown on the first day of the year

    Nordkette View

    A few photos from a stroll around the village and surrounding area on New Year’s day. As the light lowered, the combination of mountains, clouds and snow was captivating. Rinn is almost on a plateau (relatively speaking) and the 360 degree views can be spectacular: photos can never quite do the vistas justice, but it does give you the opportunity to linger afterwards and of course share some of the wonder! I used a Fuji X100s compact camera and converted the images to black and white in Silver Efex Pro. I hope you enjoy them.
