Mountain Photography

When I was a kid Gaston Rebuffat's photos (and writing) inspired me and literally drove me to explore the mountains.





I've grown up but never loss the thrill of  seeing Rebuffat's work.  Great mountain photography is like porn I suppose hard to define but you know it when you see it.

I am a huge fan of Chamonix based photographer and climber,  Jonathan Griffith's work.  How could a climber not be?  Jon, shares his photos and trip reports on his various web sites.  The content is good enough to get me back to Chamonix after being absent several decades.

And now he  offering an amazing opportunity with a Alpine Photography Course.

Just a big thumbs up for the guys who make the effort to document and share our way of life.
Some great STOKE!

Nice shots! I always love to leaf through coffee table climbing books. There are so few good new ones, I always try to pick up older ones at Pilgrims in Kathmandu.
