Robert Bertero goes to great heights to get his spectacular photos, often capturing views that can only be seen from mountain peaks. These images, and many more just as amazing as these, are available for purchase on his site.
Bertero on his work:
I am conscious concerning the difficulties to render, respectfully, in a single image, all the magnificence I see, on place, with my own eyes….
That’s why I am devoting a profound sense of discipline and responsibility in this activity, as a due tribute to the wonderful places I am visiting and also because I can’t stand the idea of wasted beauty. Sometimes I am successful in my efforts, other times less…
In any case I feel as interacting with impermanence, somehow “freezing in time” landscapes that will never appear the same again, in a constant immense flux of no fixed nature.
“Good morning, I’m sorry to have kept you waiting but I’m afraid my walk has become rather sillier recently…”
