In Search of Lost Light

Landscape photography is a constant search of light. It takes a lot of effort to find the one you are looking for, It requires a lot of patience, but sometimes waiting in the rain for few hours just to get a tiny bit of light skimming the mountain peaks can the the most rewarding experience for the landscape photographer. Just a bit of light can accentuate the darkness of mountain peaks just like a ray of light coming through the stained glass of medieval cathedral. To me mountains are majestic, monumental, dangerous. Hardly anyone sees it in black and white. I believe seeing it in color takes away its beauty.
Rahmaninov once saw black and white reproduction of Arnold Böcklin's Isle of the Dead painting. Inspired by it he composed his Op. 29. After he saw the original color version of the painting he stated he would never compose it after seeing the original one.
