Near Fine (faint stray surface marks, else Fine). From the publisher: "Forests full of mystery, gardens that remain aloof from outside gazes, mountains whose fog-shrouded summits are hidden in a thick veil--the views of nature that Axel Hütte captures in these photographs are vividly animate and seductive, but ultimately allow nature to remain sovereign and at a distance. Panoramas of awesome beauty absorb the gaze and simultaneously put it in its place--nature remains intact and impenetrable."
