In searching for these outstanding photographs, I came to the conclusion that photographing mountains is not as easy as it may first appear – I honestly thought I would struggle to decide which great photos to leave out of this list – instead, it took an age to source these beautiful images.
A Google search for the reasons returned an article by Darwin Wiggett, who states:
“Of all the landscapes I have photographed, mountains remain one of the most difficult to capture well.”
The reason for this, according to Wiggett is that light is the only tool for capturing a shot of a mountain, and to get a great shot you have to consider the three main categories of light: Light Quality, Light Direction and Light Temperature.

Here are 20 photographs of mountains that I consider to be stunningly beautiful shots.
