Summer Travel Assignment Winner Doug Croft
‘Kleine Scheidegg’ by Doug Croft
Congrats to Doug Croft for winning the Summer Travel Assignment!
“We took a tour through the Alps in June 2014 and had only a very short time in the Berner Oberland, Switzerland. We knew that thunderstorms were expected for the afternoon so we were on the lifts early to get to the Panorama Trail from Männlichen to Kleine Scheidegg. The main draw on this trail is spectacular views of Jungfrau, Monch and the Eiger but they were hidden by clouds for the most part during our hike. We were a bit disappointed as we neared the train station at Kleine Scheidegg but the clouds in the valley parted for a few minutes leaving us with this amazing view. I’d love to say that I planned this shot, but it was most definitely a gift. I ran around like a lunatic firing away before the clouds converged again. This has been one of my favorite shots from the trip because the clouds that “ruined” our view of the Jungfrau made the scene so dramatic,” says Croft. He used a Nikon D7000 with an AF-S DX Nikkor 18-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR lens.
