Q: Can I offer poster prints of my images for sell?

A: Do you know?

Returning from a road trip to Switzerland, I captured this image from within our car. Ancient Rome first hauled marble from these mountains. Many sculptures of the Renaissance, such as Michelangelo’s David, were carved from Carrara marble. Marble is still mined from these impressive peaks.

It was raining when I snapped this shot. These two were in a rush to get to where they were going.

    The rainy day gives a dream like quality to the alps and the cyclists racing add to the symbolism of how quickly life speeds by...
