ALTAI: VIEWS & ACTION by Vladimir Stolyarov, the Wild Russia photographer
The Altai mountains,
were taken during a sport trip around Beluha, the highest
Altay mountain. We had almost reached the summit, but the
weather changed dramatically and forced us to descent. In
fact we were lucky to escape, nevertheless everything was
was really strenuous but very rewarding trip around the Beluha
mountain. While abundance of not bad photographs I'm sorry
till now that I couldn't take a picture of our midnight
descendings from high passes under the moonlight.
Altay mountains, 1987: It was my first acquaintance with mountains.
I was 15 years old, I went in school but was an advanced
photographer already. As a result I've entered St. Petersburg
Mining institute and become a geologist.
