Photographer's Note

The Karkonosze [karkɔˈnɔʂɛ] (Polish) or Krkono啼 [ˈkr̩konoʃɛ] (Image:Ltspkr.png listen) (Czech), also known as the Giant Mountains (German: Riesengebirge), is a mountain range in the Sudetes, divided between Poland and the Czech Republic. Its highest peak is Sně枳a (Polish: Śnieżka), which stands on the border between the two countries at a height of 1,602 metres (5,260 ft) above sea level, making it the highest peak in the Czech Republic. The mountains are famous for their skiing resorts; they also contain the source of the River Elbe. Large areas of the mountains are preserved as national parks by both countries: the Polish Karkonosze National Park and the Czech Krkono啼 National Park. In 1992 Polish and Czech parts of the range were jointly designated a transboundary biosphere reserve under UNESCO's "Man and the Biosphere" program.
