Reinhold Messner famously said, "The mountains are not stadiums where I satisfy my ambition to achieve, they are the cathedrals where I practice my religion."
The act of climbing and exploring the mountains is a deeply meaningful and spiritual experience. The mountains themselves are like grand cathedrals. Here we can connect with something greater than ourselves. With the ability to capture photos, we can make a time capsule of it, and it will live on forever.
Looking at the images later on, I can still feel the wind on my skin, watch the clouds flying, and see the snow glittering like a billion stars.
It was my personal window into heaven. And, now, everyone all over the world can take a sneak peek.
