The dog of the day was Bowser.  He was very well behaved and calm.  He did bark when some horses went by and then again when a couple walked by with a dog. He also did some sophisticated begging while we ate our dinner.

Have you ever seen the peony’s bud?
It’s not much more than a tight oval.

But when the bud opens up,

Alpes, Switzerland

He says he has tried to challenge himself to climb to the top of the mountains a few times, but he always ends up with his legs shaking as the rest of his body becomes paralyzed. Most of his photos are made from places that anyone, even without climbing ability, can reach.

 

Dolomites, Italy

This is not the only curiosity about his career. He started shooting at age 20 after reading an issue of National Geographic magazine. Jakub asked for the camera of a friend on loan and began taking pictures of landscapes. He published them in photo forums and took the advice  to improve his technique. [more]
