Photography always seems to struggle to communicate the splendour of Mighty Mountains. Size and distance are dwarfed into the frame and the final images are never quite satisfying, because the real thing is just so much more breathtaking. Still. Nick Ledger’s image of a mountain range in Pakistan looks so pure and otherworldly that it stopped me in my tracks. The contrast between the soft cloud and the jagged mountain is just stunning. I can’t begin to imagine how it must feel to see this in real life.
