Product description

The term alpengluhn, or alpenglow, refers to the purple light that can often be seen on the tops of mountains, a spectacularly beautiful natural phenomenon. But in this magnificent volume of photographs, it's not only the Alps that are glowing in warm translucent light, but the girls also. Is this for real? It seems these strikingly pretty creatures have climbed up steep hills and hiked through meadows only to cast off their dirndls with enthusiastic aplomb. Well, Stefan Soll knows exactly how to turn such fantasies into reality. He celebrates the natural beauty of alpine flora and fauna, using the mountains where Germany, Austria, and Switzerland meet as his setting. His studio in Friedrichshafen on the Bodensee is in the perfect location from which to start these photographic excursions.
