Thanks :-)

When I'm in the mountains, I like the contrast of things big and small. Although I'm not completely sure of where in the valley I was when I saw it, that mountain must be towering at least 2500m above it. I don't think I did it justice ...

Thanks, Joel.

I have to say though that pride is not quite the emotion I have here. A little bit, perhaps, but foremost I feel lucky, even privileged, that I get to see and photograph beautiful things like this :-).

Cheers, Rob
