Emotions of the heights I've just put down some of my images which I took in Austrian and Swiss Alps.


I named the series Emotions of Heights. I am always trying to solve why a man is taking so much effort and even risking the life just to get on the summit of high mountain. Maybe people love if things don't come easy and rush of adrenaline is taking them back to the roots. I mean somewhere far when our DNA was creating. Maybe.. but I found actually some strong emotion of beeing in high altitudes, an emotion which I am addicted in, some kind of excitation and euphoria. Love this diagnosis :)

Hope you'll enjoy
