Als skifahrender Physiknerd sind mir beim Skitourentrip in Norwegen die Begriffe Raum und Zeit in den Sinn gekommen. Klar ist, dass sich Raum und Zeit in Nord-Norwegen gefühlt anders verhalten und sich mit ein bisschen physikalischer Phantasie das Norwegische Raum-Zeit-Kontinuum aufstellen lässt…
The Italian language isn’t too difficult. Spettacolare means, spectacular, right. And using gesture makes communication quite easy. The famous mamma mia is well understood when moving your fingertips together and waving your hand. So we thought we were well prepared for a trip to the Dolomites.

Ralf Gantzhorn was born in 1964, holds a M.S. in Geology – and has even worked as a geologist (as an independent consultant in the contamination sector). He has been climbing since 1983 and working as a photographer since 1985. As a northern German, he is always torn between the far too distant mountains and the fresh sea air, but he’s found a compromise in Scandinavia, Scotland and Patagonia (where he has now spent over three years). He enjoys organizing trips in areas where unfamiliar vistas – which haven’t already been photographed 1000 times – lure from every corner. He often experiences his images as far too static, but then is pleased with the abundance of triangles in the structure and the fantastic light.
OK, it’s the most famous glacier in the world. You can’t expect solitude here; every fifteen minutes a busload of tourists is released in the direction of the viewing platforms. And yet the sight of the Perito Moreno Glacier in Patagonia with its 4-km wide and 60 m high escarpment has something touching, something incomprehensible about it. It is a natural spectacle that takes your breath away and that instinctively describes the relationship between man and nature. Humility and tranquil joy of existence seizes every viewer.
