... retow with his spectacular image of the Swiss mountains. It is our winner 3-8 Feb.
Congratulations, retow!! Loved this image the first time I saw in in the forum - "spectacular" is the word for this astounding photograph!
Congrats, with all the absolutely amazing images this week, this was still easily the standout photo for me!
Is that an Alpine Chough (had to search for the name)? I saw them years ago high up in the Austrian alps, I was surprised at how comfortable they were to be among people. I suppose the only people who venture that high up into the mountains, don't pose a threat to them...
Congrats mate, quite an excellent image.
It was so great I almost voted AGAINST it.......LOL. Sublime!
Congratulation! Great image!
I voted for this pic, as soon as I saw it, I liked it.
Good On ya mate! deserving win for an awesome Photo!
Congrats retow. Amazing picture. Makes me want to be that bird.
Wow, that's gorgeous. Congrats!
Thanks to everybody for all the kind words and your votes. I guess this mountain trip was my lucky day as everything fell into place, the weather, the light, the birds and I seemed to have the right tool with me. In the end, I came home with quite a few keepers.
This is another one from the same day, although I guess I overdid it in PP, but lately I had a lot of fun to play around with Silver Efex Pro (you know how it is with new toys).
Yes, it's an Alpine Chough, amazing air artists living high up in the Alps. They are great fun to watch.
I hope you make sure the image is widely seen since I think it is one of those that deserve to become iconic.
Congrats - well done - great birds - saw quite a few last summer in the French Pyrenees
Brilliant picture, well done! Which camera did you use?
Congratulations on a well deserved win.
