|Paragliders over Queenstown, New Zealand|
on a long journey I took about 8 years ago. One year of travel gave me ample time to fill quite a few sketchbooks with many a mountain drawing. Those sketches turned into an illustration which became mountain calendars and then mountain quotes on mountain cards. And here's the latest on Society6--anything from mountain mugs to mountain shower curtains!
So it seemed like the perfect opportunity to relive some of those beautiful sights and share a few of my favourite mountain photos with you...
|Emerald Lakes on the Tongariro Crossing, New Zealand|
The mountains intrigued me with their majestic stance and calm presence. Almost like they were in a constant state of meditation. They seemed to give me permission to do the same--to be still, to admire the beauty and to breathe deeply.

Even though they remained so still and permanent, their colours changed dramatically. From a black silhouette at night to brilliant, warm hues that emerged gradually, as the sun started to rise over the horizon.
|Uluru (aka. Ayers Rock) in Australia|
The high altitudes often brought clouds and fog which can make these intimidating forms magically disappear before your very eyes.
|Clouds rolling over Mount Kinabalu in Malaysia, Borneo|
They appeared in so many shapes and forms, silently standing before oceans, valleys and fields.
|Beautiful beach in Krabi, Thailand|
|Long shadows and bright colours from the early sun in Cuba|
|Mountain range across a rice field in Bali, Indonesia|
I have seen mountains from here to there,
They seem to be following me everywhere!
Now what do you think about my next project--a mountain mural?!
