Island in the Clouds
Jagged edges of the Alps under a deceptive veil of silky clouds.
A gentle reminder of the lurking dangers below the innocent looking layers below us.
This shot was taken above the Swiss Alps from an altitude of 36.000ft. Landscapes and mountains like miniature ridges. Detached from the surface, the entire world slips by in slow motion.
It's sometimes unbelievable that I'm able to cross those landscapes and ranges in mere minutes, where not even a hundred years ago people would take days or weeks to cross the Alps.
I feel privileged to sit in the front row with my camera and document it all.
