Don\'t Try This At Home
Celebrating the summit of Pisco with a leap into the air ... with crampons still on (living dangerously!). Peaks in the background are Artesonraju, the Pucajirca group, PirĂ¡mide, and Pisco Este. Photo of Howie Silleck by my wife Sonya Silleck, July 6, 2007.

Thanks Witek - we've definitely had some good inspirational jumping pics on SP - Butterfly's and Rick B's Mt. Cook jump come to mind!
Cheers,
Howie

This is a great action shot! Colors and composition turned out really good too. What camera did you use?

Thanks Torsten - this was shot with a Canon 10MP Rebel Xti and a 17-85 zoom lens.
Thanks again,
