If you frequently find yourself facing difficult terrain to get a great landscape photo, don’t you feel super content when all your effort pays off and you’re presented with an astounding view? Well, photographer Albert Dros’ s strenuous hike was sure worth it:
The image is of the Ala-Kul lake in Kyrgyzstan. As Dros had to hike about six hours up a super steep mountain to get to this location at 3600 meters. And the journey was made even more difficult when he fell victim to altitude sickness. However, the lighting on the mountain tops, the reflection off the water, rich color, and Dros’s interesting composition with the flowers in the foreground make this image truly outstanding.
