The best colors of the day for nature to photograph are usually early morning and late evening. During the day, especially if it's very sunny, the light is often to harsh and casts a lot of shadows.

During my summer holiday I visited a Swiss girlfriend. She was running at that time a hikers cabine situated at 8,000 feet in the Alps. The view from this cabine was spectacular.

One morning I got up early and dressed warm. It had been a clear night so it was cold outside. The sun came up and colored the sky orange for a short amount of time and the capricious mountaintops gave a lot of depth in my composition.

It was a very special to experience this all during that morning, all alone, high up in the Alps.
