Karol Nienartowicz, a Polish photographer who specializes in mountain photography has devoted the last 6 years hiking and camping throughout Europe’s mountains. But instead of showing us the usual shots of the majestic mountain scenery he gives us a glimpse of what it is like to camp there for a few days.
Nienartowicz’s greatest passion is taking photographic expeditions to the Alps, Europe’s highest and most extensive mountain range system. It is during this hazardous trips that Nienartowicz sleeps in his tent which he always sets up often on the most remote and difficult to reach regions of the mountain. Of course, he has to brave the harsh elements of each mountain but the view from up there shows why it is worth all the trouble. Check out these awe-inspiring photos.
