When we think of mountains we think of high peaks, summits, valleys, slopes, and all these breath-taking sceneries of something so utterly massive. Mountains have the power to move us. Their majesty impresses us, their wildlife enthrals us, and their peace relaxes us. Mountains have been a source of inspiration for human societies and cultures for centuries. However, mountains are not only for the enjoyment of beautiful sceneries, mountains have an extremely vital role in influencing global and regional climates and the world's freshwater conditions. My challenge is to identify and show how fragile mountain ecosystems are. With my photographs, I want to demonstrate the importance of sustainable mountain development at the global level and increase awareness of the likely problems facing the Alps.
