A Mountain near Glarus - Vorder Glärnisch

During the first days of my Christmas family visit in Switzerland, it was mostly rainy at lower altitude but the nearby mountains had their beautiful powdered sugar decoration contrasting with the trees and forests.

I use Affinity Photo to edit my photos. In RAW persona, I modify exposure (moving histogram, more centric) and noise reduction. In photo persona, I usually apply curves, HSL adjustment and at the end sharpening with high pass filter.

With this particular shot, I additionally reduced saturation on the blue channel turning it nearly B&W, brightness/contrast to improve structure within clouds and shadows/highlights adjustments for the forest.
