Mountains of the Middle Kingdom Exploring the high peaks pf China and Tibet di Rowell Galen

 In breve: Chi non conosce questa fotografia? la cartolina ricavatane l'ho usata per ricordare la spedizione al Kailash, 1994, sulle orme di Giuseppe Tucci, nel centennario della nascita.

The ragged, gleaming peaks of the Himalayas are captured with an ultimate realism, as if a window had opened on the page, and we ourselves were peering through it .... This is a breaking free, a testimony to the Earth's original, untameable wildness."
