There are places in the world that make the heart sing. Atop a mountain or on the edge of a precipice where the option of looking down is as dramatic and exciting as looking up, the desire to explore is tempered by the fact that the distances are out of reach either temporally or physically. The challenge of capturing these places in a manner that even reminds me of the greatness of their monument is the exercise that I most relish as a photographer. The hope is that as one views these photographs you want to visit that location yourself or you are reminded basally of the time that you did.
