Really: 5 things I learned FROM today. Share with those you love (or even just kinda like).

4 - Matterhorn Portraits

I do love a single subject photo series. Here is a series of shot of the amazing Matterhorn.

The photographer, Nenad Saljic:

"When I was young, I had long fantasized about climbing the Matterhorn but I never really had the chance. I have been mountaineering and caving since I was twelve. I was reading all classic books about alpinism and my first great climbs were in my imagination."

"The Matterhorn is one of the most famous Alpine peaks and one of the most dangerous mountains in the world. It was the last great Alpine peak to be climbed and, its first ascent in 1865, which was fatal for four men, marked the end of the golden age of alpinism. Its north face, which is on my all photographs, was not climbed until 1931.

"A Portrait of the Matterhorn is a kind of memento to all climbers who dared to go there and for those who never returned."

While it's not the camera, it's the not the software, it's not the lens, it's not the gear that makes a great photo so great, they all do help the photographer capture what it is his eye wants us to see.
