People wearing archaic masks and wild costumes, the landscape of the Alps through the changing seasons, by day and by night, when an unbelievable calm descends over the mountains spectacoulus images never seen before. Some of the images were taken during violent thunderstorms, crystal-clear mountain lakes, flower-strewn meadows, rugged gorges and raging waterfalls.

These fascinating pictures bear witness to the beauty of the mountains and illustrate why so many people are drawn to this magnificent natural and cultural landscape!
