Mountains always mesmerize us. With their striking ruggedness. With their incredible heights. With their spectacular mass and commanding sights. Nothing we have ever made can be compared to them. That’s why they are both our inspirations and fears. Some are intimidated and hindered by them, while some aspire to conquer and move them. But for Frank Peters, it is not about being feared or being on the top. It’s about being amazed on everything of the way, with each breath, and capturing the magnificent beauty of these heavenly creations.

Frank Peters moves the essence, the spirit of mountains through our eyes and into our minds. Only with his lense and love for mountains. Photographing the Northern Lights at -35 degrees, climbing mountains for a top photo or waiting for hours to catch the most beautiful light along a rugged coastline.

“Mountains, according to the angle of view, the season, the time of day, the beholder’s frame of mind, or any one thing, can effectively change their appearance. Thus, it is essential to recognize that we can never know more than one side, one small aspect of a mountain.” Haruki Murakami
Tre Cime di Lavaredo by Frank Peters
“…seen from above, landscapes are made up of mountains and watercourses. Just as a transparent model of the human body consists of a framework of bone and a network of arteries, the earth’s crust is structured in mountain ridges, river, creeks, and gullies.” Reinhold Messner
Tofana by Frank Peters
“Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of autumn.” John Muir
