The year is 2017 and I am taking images of pretty landscapes and interesting sights professionally for some time now. I love being outside, the thrill of discovering new places with my own eyes, and I love to carve out the final image that is hidden in the raw file, leaving my mark on well known perspectives as well as new ones. There is nothing missing and I am looking forward to the trip to Switzerland. We will see the Rhone glacier which used to be one of the bigger glaciers in the region but, as with almost all glaciers, it has shrunken a fair bit over the last one hundred years. What draws me to this particular glacier is the fact that it is partly covered in white canvas to protect it from melting, elongating the annual life cycle of the ice cave carved into the glacier's mouth.
I will not come out of that cave the same person I was before for I will find something in there that I now consider my grail piece: The best photograph that I have ever taken. An image that continues to bring me joy and inspiration every time I lay my eyes on it.
