Mordor from 'Lord of the Rings,' shows just how ominous mountain ranges can be; Mondor 2.0 by Jakub Polomski, a photographer based in Cieszyn, Poland, is a photo series that drives that point home. The monochromatic mountains are dark and mysterious, leading anyone to fantasize about what could be going on amongst those high peaks.

Capturing the Torres del Paine National Park, which is located in Chile, Mondor 2.0 by Jakub Polomski focuses on shades of grey, white and black, which is accentuated by the stormy skies as well as the crevices found along the craggy surfaces of the mountains. Whether captured from afar or up close, with water or just sky, the images cast a paralyzing spell over those who survey them. In a way, this technique gives the ranges a personality.
