Overview

This photographic delight of 100 images will inspire a lifetime's worth of new dreams. Fall under the spell of the Alps and their amazine diversity of scenery.From the Maritime Alps behind Nice, to the sun-washed Julians of Slovenia, the Alpine chain is one of the most scenically diverse and exciting ranges on earth. With glacier and snowfield, meadow, scree and rockface, its subtle beauty is revealed in a variety of landscape features, while peaks such as Mont Blanc, the Matterhorn, Eiger, M?nch and Jungfrau are mountains of which dreams are made and ambitions forged. But the best of the Alps are not the sole preserve of the climber, as this collection of photographs prove. The winding trail taken by walkers and trekkers leads to countless vantage points that unfold scenes of heart-stopping splendour, and Alpine addict Kev Reynolds has selected a hundred of his favourites. Alpine Points of View seduces the reader out of the armchair and into Europe's premier range, with illustrations and text creating dreams to be turned into reality.
