Grimsel by Hans Abplanalp:

Taken at around 5 o’clock on a July afternoon after a hike on the Grimselpass. The weather was reasonably kind in as much as there were picturesque clouds about that also provided interesting light. I had taken a few shots, but already knew that the delete button was going to be in demand. However, I then spotted this: it was the plants in the foreground that immediately struck me contrasting with the subdued tones of the rugged mountain backdrop. I used RAW, Photoshop and On1 to enhance the lighting and get the colours of the plants to pop.
