The Black Mountain
Glockner - Der schwarze Berg
Mount Grossglockner towers above the Tauern massif like a sentinel over an Alpine paradise of nature. Georg Riha portrays the Austrian Alps' highest summit using state-of- the-art techniques. The camera accompanies mountain goats to the edge of a precipice and hovers above regions man has never entered whereas cable-car rides reveal the true nature of glaciers and waterfalls.
