Alpine meadows, mountain streams and the majestic peaks of the Alps... the Alps dominate the European landscape in many countries. Hiking through the mountains can be glorious. What better way to present their beauty than in black and white. I have enjoyed visiting them on several occasions.
Within the Val d'Aosta lies Gran Paradiso National Park in northwest Italy and a hike through the Val di Cogne within this park is spectacular. The Dolomites of northwest Italy are legendary and hiking the vast expanse of the alpine meadow Alpi di Suissi humbles one as you are dwarfed in the grand landscape. The Bavarian Alps too have their own unique beauty. These images were produced from various trips to Europe.
