Welcome to the alpine. Summers are short, winters are long, and life above treeline drums along to one of the most dynamic landscapes on the planet.
Some of the Earth's most delicate and precious creations are protected within the subterranean world beneath our feet.
The ever changing play of light upon natural forms can occupy a photographer for a lifetime.
Skiing is an ultimate pursuit. Interacting with water in it's crystalline form, with friends and in the mountains, what more does one need to feed the soul?
Always revealing one's mental and physical limitations, the unlikely pursuit against gravity is a beautiful thing.
Humans in their element.
