When it comes to landscape photography, particularly of The Alps, the vast majority of the photographs you see are shot in full daylight with crisp glistening snow accompanied by acres of blue sky. Imagine the cover a ski-holiday brochure and you’ll know exactly the scene.
Which is why German photographer Michael Schnabel’s extraordinary series Stille Berge (translation: Silent Mountains) is so striking and powerful. He shoots The Alps using long-exposure in the depths of the night, capturing their magic, isolation & brooding sense of foreboding in majestic fashion.
Dark, sombre and ultimately brilliant, be sure you experience more of his work here
