Stunningly Beautiful Photographs of Mountains

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.

If you are interested in reading more, visit Darwin Wiggett’s article How to Photograph Mountains published by Nature Photographers Online Magazine.

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

I love using and learning Photoshop, and I also enjoy creating resources to share with the world. I am at my happiest when I have free time to further explore all that Photoshop has to offer and learn more about its powerful built-in tools. I hope people enjoy either using or learning from my free resources, and welcome any hints and tips - and of course, if you would like to offer a free resource on this site, please don't hesitate to contact me (top right of the page).
