Surrounded by beauty. I'm feeling such nostalgia for for our New Zealand trip.

Nos pas résonnent dur sur le sol gelé. Il y a ce froid qui nous prend aux épaules. Mais c’est bien d’être là, le bonnet enfoncé jusqu’aux oreilles, les mains agrippées aux bâtons et les yeux neufs, en se promettant de beaux ricochets d’images, des puretés sidérales, des grands vents coureurs de pente, des combes à neiges et des petits glaciers suspendus, des ciels souverains où passent des escadrilles de choucas, traçant de larges courbes et s’égayant brutalement pour se regrouper aussi vite. Comme un petit goût de Grand Paradis. #thegreatmountains #montagne_my_life #bns_nature #bns_mountains #bns_earth #nature_perfection #hubs_united #pocket_frozen #earth_shotz #nature_wizards #nature_brilliance #igworld_global #kings_shots #amazing_shots #exceptional_pictures #loves_mountains #world_bestangels #word_great #loves_mountains #splendid_mountains #bestmountainartist #mountain_greatshots #ig_valdaosta #naturelove_world #snow_world #amazing_shots #amazing_winterseason #winterwonderland #bestnatureshot #amazing_shots #natgeolandscape

Le sommet du Grand-Paradis (4061 m) n’a rien à envier au Mont-Blanc ou au Cervin voisins. Il domine un vaste massif éponyme au sud du Val d’Aoste. Ses profondes vallées donnent accès au premier parc national créé en Europe (en 1922). L'environnement, spectaculaire et encore intact, a été façonné par les glaciers. #thegreatmountains #montagne_my_life #bns_nature #bns_mountains #bns_earth #nature_perfection #hubs_united #pocket_frozen #earth_shotz #nature_wizards #nature_brilliance #igworld_global #kings_shots #amazing_shots #exceptional_pictures #loves_mountains #world_bestangels #word_great #loves_mountains #splendid_mountains #bestmountainartist #mountain_greatshots #valdaosta #ig_valdaosta #visititalia

Everyone is afraid of something. For certain people being trapped in an enclosed space is intolerable. Others get freaked out by spiders, snakes and all things creepy crawly. Open water makes some people start to panic, while those with a fear of heights may start to hyperventilate when they get too high or are on a steep exposed ledge. For those that don't share the same fear as someone else, it can often seem silly or irrational. I've been on group hikes before where people will tease or goad a person who's afraid of heights. I really don't like that kind of behaviour. Those same people also have their own set of fears, and without doubt wouldn't appreciate being mocked for those. In fact, I think that the people who hike and scramble despite their fear of heights should be admired and congratulated for overcoming their fear or at least for carrying on in the face of it. I've previously posted shots from my hiking trip in the Orobian Alps in Northern Italy. It was the first time that I went with my friend Francesco on a multi-day trek (four days, three nights), and his friend Marco joined us for the first two days. They're both very experienced hikers and growing up close to the Alps, both have spent a lot of time in the mountains. On Day 3 en route from the Rifugio Brunone to Rifugio Coca, after Marco had left us, we came to some sections of the trail that either required some scrambling (usually with the aid of a chain or rope) or walking along a narrow ledge. That was when I discovered that Francesco is afraid of heights. Normally we have the same pace, but when we got to these areas, I was why ahead of him. I didn't mind at all having to sit and wait for him, as it meant that I got to take shots such as this one, looking down at Francesco as he climbed up a gully with the aid of a chain. He was scared at the time, and a few other times that day, but he felt really exhilarated after having done it. That's the benefit of facing a fear: the thrill of having done something scary and the self-pride you feel from expanding your comfort zone.

🇩🇪 Just to be clear on what I'm expecting this coming month. Visualization works good for me - when I see a picture I literally feel myself standing in the middle of it. I guess that's one of the reasons why I love hiking: even when I know it's going to be tough I see myself there, on the top, and it's much easier then to go through the way (sounds like I climb Everest every time, right?😌). Anyways, this park on Mainau island in Germany is my favorite spring destination, we've been here 4 times in the last 5 years. It's close to Zurich, it has this beautiful nature, my favorite tulips, butterflies dome, gorgeous orchid exhibition, nice playground and a small pet zoo for kids. And it's Germany, you know, so we buy stuff there every time we get the chance - like everyone living in Switzerland - so yes, for us (as a family with a toddler) it's a perfect Saturday somewhere in mid April. . P.S. I'll definitely organize a family day out there any time soon. Just keep an eye on my FB page, and wait for the event announcement.

A travers le Val de Cogne, au cœur du Parc du Grand Paradis, nos randonnées se sont déroulées sur un terrain propice à la raquette et au ski de rando mais dans un cadre très alpin avec des sommets de plus de 4000 m. #loves_mountains #splendid_mountains #bestmountainartist #mountain_greatshots #valdaosta #ig_valdaosta #visititalia #igworldclub_mountains #mountainworld #bns_mountains #thegreatmountains #montagne_my_life #naturelove_world #snow_world #amazing_shots #earth_shotz #amazing_winterseason #winterwonderland #bestnatureshot #amazing_shots #natgeolandscape

🇨🇭 Ok, looks like winter hikes are over - it's the end of March, after all. April is the worst - you basically cannot hike - snow melts, it rains, so they won't let anyone go up. On a bright side: magnolia, cherry blossoms, narcisses and tulips - I love those, so everything is not that bad 🌸🌷💮🌼 . . . #nature_brilliance #photographyislife #natureaddict #traveladdict #globetrotter #ic_landscapes #outdoorfamilies #beautifuldestinations #childrenofmountains #hikevibes #ourplanetdaily #discoverearth #discovernature #stayandwander #liveoutdoors #awesome_photographers #thegreatoutdoors #thegreatmountains #discoverglobe #hiking #bealpine #wesharethealps #fantastic_earth #roamtheplanet #tourtheplanet #nakedplanet #wildernessearth #wanderout #naturegeography #iatskiv_family

This has to be one of my favorite winter images from the mountains. Taken way back in 2009, I've spent the last couple days monotonously reprocessing this image. I think I've finally got it where I want it. #nature #utah #utahgram #saltlakecity #slc #mountains #winter #snow #color #landscape #photography #photo #art #wasatch #brightonresort #silverlake #nikon #d300 #neutraldensityfilter #earthpix #earth #thegreatmountains #earthimagined #outdoorphotography #outdoorphotographer

El cráter de Kerið es una excursión muy asequible para todos. Puedes bajar hasta abajo si quieres tocar el agua. Las vistas desde arriba y recorrer su perímetro es una experiencia que os recomiendo en vuestro viaje a Islandia 🇮🇸👌🌋 #iceland #islandia #nature #naturelovers #landoficeandfire #iceland_tourist #icelandic #icelandroadtrip #landscape #beautifuldestinations #travel #travelblogger #kerid #bestintravel #meraki #wanderlust #explore #trekking #thegreatmountains #travelphotographyguide #travelphotography #niceland #marbltravel #passportcollective #iamtb #loculars @travellerspirits #ecotrotter #wonderful_places #tourtheplanet #letsgoeverywhere

🇨🇭 Swiss winter at its best. They say the first summer day this year in Switzerland was registered last week, meaning it was 20C all day long (few days in a row actually) and basically yeah, winter is over. I have mixed feelings about this: I love summer, you know, sun and sea, dresses and ice cream, so I'm happy I'll get it all soon. On the other hand... look at this picture - says it all. It's real wonderland around here in winter - you don't feel that during warm summer days. Well, at least I don't feel that. I was thinking today (again) that we're so lucky! We get to enjoy different seasons (unlike those living in Singapore or Cambodia, for example), and I really enjoy every one of them. Except cold and rainy weather - I hate it no matter what date it is on a calendar. . . . #nature_brilliance #photographyislife #natureaddict #traveladdict #globetrotter #ic_landscapes #lonelyplanet #beautifuldestinations #discover_landscapes #hikevibes #ourplanetdaily #discoverearth #discovernature #stayandwander #liveoutdoors #awesome_photographers #thegreatoutdoors #thegreatmountains #discoverglobe #hiking #bealpine #wesharethealps #fantastic_earth #roamtheplanet #tourtheplanet #nakedplanet #wildernessearth #wanderout #naturegeography #vscoua

On the way up to Ben Nevis, Scotland. Only had a couple of minutes of good light but that view was spectacular. I can't wait to climb Ben Nevis again this weekend. #scotland #highlands #strathphoto

Friendly reminder that the last talk for our 2017 speaker series will be tomorrow night, March 23rd at 7:00 PM at the University of Calgary (Earth Sciences 162). Lesley Peterson, Biologist for Trout Unlimited Canada will be talking about whirling disease - a prominent point of discussion since the first Canadian case of the disease was confirmed last August in Banff. Hope to see you there!

🇨🇭 This is #Oeschinensee, but from the different perspective - doesn't look like the one I've been spamming about here all this time. But it's truth: if you go for a day hike around that place it's like you see not one, but two, or even three different lakes - depending on light, elevation and angle. So yeah, still pretty cool location for an unforgettable day out. And yes, still my favorite summer destination. P.S. It's my best friend's birthday today. She's the kind of a friend you wish you had, and still never got one. She was always there, you know? We shared the room, food, clothes and stuff. Best memories, remarkable events, crazy adventures - she was always by my side. I love her so much! She's smart, kind, loving and caring - she is the best. I just wanted to let you all know that she has a birthday today, and I wish her all the happiness and joy in the world. As I always do :) .

Keeping up the trend, here's another old shot (2011) near Duway, UT that is featured in my coffee table book "An Introduction into Landscape" (for sale on my new site). I actually camped here this past weekend, but sadly I didn't get any great shots. I'll be heading back out here pretty regularly over the coming months so expect to see more of this valley. #nature #natureaddict #utah #utahgram #dugway #midday #clouds #sky #prarie #mountains #landscape #photography #photo #art #nikon #d300 #neutraldensityfilter #earthpix #earth #thegreatmountains #earthimagined #weirdshithappensneardugway
