Mountain Photo Galleries

“The love of wilderness is more than a hunger for what is always beyond reach; it is also an expression of loyalty to the earth, the earth which bore us and sustains us, the only paradise we shall ever know, the only paradise we ever need, if only we had the eyes to see.” 

― Edward Abbey (1927 - 1989)

The San Juan Mountains, in southwest Colorado, are the most rugged and extensive mountainous region in the state - an ocean of mountains that extends as far as the eye can see. Some notable San Juan towns are Telluride and Ouray on the northern side, Silverton in the middle, and Durango to the south...

During the summer of 2009, I devoted six weeks to photographing the amazing mountains and fjords of Norway. I traveled more than 8500 km (5300 miles), from the capital city of Oslo in the south, as far north as the Lofoten Islands and Tromsø, above the Arctic Circle.  In between I saw some of the most unique and impressive peaks in the world, often with some very dynamic weather conditions...

The longest mountain range in the world, the Andes stretch 7,000 km (4,300 mi) through a variety of South American environments, from the glaciated equitorial high peaks of the Peruvian Cordilleras, through the barren volcanoes of the Atacama desert, the lush temperate rainforests of the Chile and Argentina's Lakes Districts, to the windswept southern towers of Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego...

From October to December 2008, I spent 7 weeks in New Zealand, mostly tramping (hiking) in the mountains of the South Island during their spring season. I traveled from town to town, with no fixed itinerary, staying for about a week at a time in each place to explore the nearby mountains. The main places I based my hikes from were Mount Cook Village, Queenstown, Fox Glacier, Arthur's Pass, Wanaka, and Te Anau...

These black and white mountain photos make elegant prints that give a different feel to a room than my color prints do.  One nice advantage of the black & white prints is that they still look good even under very dim lighting conditions, due to their contrasty monochrome tones.
