These Award Winning Photographs Will Show Just How Beautiful Mountains Can Really Be

, , ,

“Accidents on big mountains happen when people’s ambitions cloud their good judgment. Good climbing is about climbing with heart and with instinct, not ambition and pride,” a British outdoor survivor and adventurer once said.

We humans attempt to take ownership of nature’s highest peaks. Climbers claim that they “conquered” the summit, an ultimate show of bravado.

The mountains, the Alps, the Rockies are all quiet giants that sit still while being surrounded by unpredictable environment of weather, terrain, and animals, and it is a grandiose claim to say that a person has conquered them—a claim that is full or irony.

Mountains are seen as strong and unmoving entities, and because of their proximity to the heavens, mountains are considered sacred in many cultures.

Here are photos of the world’s highest peaks. These images show the majesty of these natural wonders that we can appreciate their beauty and mystery. These photos will tell us that mountains are meant to be enjoyed and respected but never conquered.
