A stunning large-format landscape photograph by John Kabel.


A gorgeous black and white photograph that captures the timeless majesty of an American mountain landscape. In the background, underneath a cloud-filled sky, a snow-capped range stretches across the image. These mountains are reflected in the waters of a serene lake situated in the foreground.

The absence of color allows for a heightened appreciation of contrasts. The play of light and dark paints a story of the textures of the mountain: from the smooth, reflective surface of the water to the rough, craggy surfaces of the mountain face. The sky adds depth to the image.

Really, no description can do justice to this exceptional composition – check it out for yourself.
