Incredible Photos of the Tatra Mountains

Julita Chudko is an adventurous Polish photographer who has scaled the Tatra Mountains to take some of the more beautiful landscape photos of a place I've ever seen. Through her lens, she has captured the colors, the haze and the glorious open spaces below her so perfectly, I feel I have intimate knowledge of this area.

If you'd like to see more of her works, visit her website or facebook page.
