Jakub Polomski is an award-winning landscape photographer from Poland:

“For me photography means travels, light and time. I was born in 1985, but the photography has started interesting me when I was 20 years old. Inspired by photos which I saw in one of the issues of National Geographic, I borrowed DSLR from a friend and then it began… Since 2007, I have been awarded with several prizes and commendations in various photography contests. However by far the most important for me is National Geographic Poland statuette gained for the first place in category “Polish Landscape” in 2010.”

One of Jakub’s latest projects include a series of monochromatic photographs from the Alps. The series was inspired by J.R.R. Tolkien’s “The Lord of the Rings” -books and movies. The mood in these photographs is just amazing, and the monochromatic conversion fits these landscapes perfectly:
