It’s easy to photograph and write about mountains in terms of the Sublime. Not as a dusty old idea superseded by numerous intellectual fashions, but as a term which means something important. A term which refers to a mode of experience which is real, quite separate from talking about it.
It’s less easy, and therefore more interesting, to consider relationship with nature in tame urban spaces. The fact that this is interesting does not mean I prefer or advocate the experience as such; quite the contrary in regard to mountains.
