A ghostly image of a woman stares out from the Bavarian mountainscape of the summit of Hoch Kalter, (High Cold mountain). 

The artist climbed this mountain alone in the late winter of 2010 and it was one of the most risky solo ascents he had undertaken to date, yet one of the most rewarding and spiritually enlightening. The face of the woman represents all that is at stake by being alone in such a place and what one must return to all costs, love and companionship of those most dearest, these thoughts were naturally in the forefront of the artists mind at the moment of summiting. So it is only natural that they should be projected on to the sublimeness of the landscape one is surrounded within.
