The Grenz glacier leads the way up to the Zumsteinspitze, which at 4,563 meters is just one of the many peaks of the Pennine Alps straddling the border between Switzerland and Italy. The Zumsteinspitze is one of several sub-peaks of the Monta Rosa, which is crowned by Switzerland’s highest peak, the Dufourspitze.
Here, starting with a shot of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau under a swirl of high clouds, is a set of images celebrating the mountains that have inspired generations of artists and dreamers, and mountaineers, including me.
Scenes like these repeat across the Swiss Alps, long a destination for climbers, hikers and lovers of pristine nature. For more photographs from my recent forays into the Swiss Alps, please stop by Tom Fakler Photography website for a look around!
