Chamonix is a magical place. From the mountains that you have to crane your neck to see the tops of, to the dozens of people paragliding down towards you in a majestic Alpine wonderland, it's a great place to spend an evening. Luckily, that's what we did on the first night of our photo tour with @simonroppel_photograpy last fall, and this is the evening we got. It would be hard to ask for a better start to a tour!
Of course, I had no idea how best to capture this amazing scene materializing in front of me, so I took the only course that I could think of and found the most interesting foreground I could and juxtapose it against the incredible view. I think it's a pretty ok picture. I could have done better and often wish I did, but I also had zero experience shooting in conditions as spectacular as this so I try not to beat myself up about it too much.
