Mountains are ever-impressive towers of earth that leave us in awe. These elevated portions of the earth’s crust form on every continent, coming in all shapes and sizes. Whether they are formed by tectonic plates colliding, erosion, or volcanoes, mountains inspire us to go outside and explore. Numerous sports like skiing, hiking, mountain biking, and snowboarding call us in the various alpine seasons. Mountains also hold a sacred place among many of the world’s religions and cultures. The ancient Greeks believed Mount Olympus was the home of the gods, whereas Mount Fuji holds a sacred place in Japanese culture. As a nature lover, I am constantly drawn to the mountains for their microclimates and hyper-specialized wildlife. Please enjoy one of my favorite subjects to photograph: Earth’s mountains.
