It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words. But not all pictures are what you want hanging on your wall. So for anyone looking for just the right mountain print, I’ve added a new section to help. In four print categories, Print Suggestions presents a selection from all the images in occasionalclimber.co.nz that I think are best suited to printing for display purposes.
Mountain landscapes are probably the most universally popular print category. These images feature no people, focusing simply on the beauty and grandeur of the natural mountain landscape.
But introducing a human element to an image can make it much more personal. You can more easily imagine yourself right there in the landscape. A human element also gives a sense of scale to the landscape.
Mountain culture takes the human element a step further, focusing on people and what they do in the mountains. What remains apparent is how significantly the mountain environment influences and shapes the people who live or visit there.
Within mountain landscapes are countless natural wonders – flora, fauna and beautiful ice, snow, water, rock and cloud features.
