More Beautiful Photography

Last December I shared the web site of an artist who does amazing photography.  Here’s another

I’ve started reading Three Cups of Tea, on the recommendation of a friend, and near the beginning there’s a passing reference to wilderness photographer Galen Rowell, who died in a plane crash while “trying to capture the transcendent beauty” of the mountains of Pakistan, where Three Cups of Tea takes place.  I looked up his web site and found oodles, scads, tons even, of truly magnificent photography. 

Pictured here is one of Gasherbrum, one of the peaks mentioned on the same page of the book as Rowell.  Excellent, isn’t it?  I made it my desktop background at work last week.  You should check out the rest of his work.
