Mountains make great photo subjects, and their pictures – executed right – make great photo prints.
Take this one. With its assuring "yes-we-can" attitude it will be easily at home in any environment, be it a living room in a city loft, a studio in a suburban villa, or a business office where the spirit of motivation is being aimed at.
The setting is late September, and me actually trying to catch up on time after having missed the right trailhead [again on this trip], but failing at it miserably—no wonder with all the scenery around.
So here I am, losing time.
A group of Austrians is passing behind my back heading in the opposite direction, descending, soon to finish, when one of them, the last in the troop, stops and notes "Nice camera!". This comes out of the blue and makes me almost drop the mentioned. Yikes! Frame again, the click, my usual "off-the-neck-and-into-the-bag" camera move [a pain, to tell the truth], a very small talk about the awkwardness of film photography, and I am off.
There are still three hours of walking ahead, uphill, photo breaks not included.
The mountain pictured is the Ortler/Ortles, with 3,905 m (12,812 ft) the highest summit in the Italian province of Alto Adige, also known as South Tyrol.
The peak is located in the Stelvio National Park near the borders with Switzerland and Austria. Before the World War I, the whole province was part of Austria-Hungary, and the mountain was the latter's highest point.
The autonomous region in Italy which the province constitutes now is quite different from the rest of the country. The people speak mostly German, and culinary delights are far from what many would—rightly—associate with cucina italiana.
To make it clear: no pizza.
The nearest international airports of any significance are those of Zurich (240 km/150 mi away) and Venice (320 km/200 mi). It is also possible to arrive by train on a feeder line to the Transalpine railway Innsbruck-Verona-Bologna, or by bus from both neighbouring countries.
The hiking trail where this picture was taken is one of the most beautiful in the National Park. It is rather short (8 km/5 mi) and not very steep (650 m/2,130 ft altitude difference), can be walked in both directions, and both trailheads are easily accessible by public transport.
The vicinity is full of spectacular mountains, which would make it an ideal, dream holiday destination in summer and winter alike, if not for the schlep to get there.
So, why not just order this mountain photo print and enjoy the view without ever leaving the house?
Glad you are asking! Think about some of the following, for example.

In a world where everything has its price, you better spend your money on what matters, and is worth it.
Art is probably the last thing we need, has always been, but we know when we need it. If you came to know it, choose wisely.
There is no "cheap" art. As with everything else, something cheap is nothing more than that, so be aware. If you are ready to invest in a piece of art, be sure it is of high value to you, and worth the money.
How can you be? Follow your eyes, and listen to your heart. You will know everything you need, in a moment.
