That's incredible!!!! I saw your picture and your "Home Page" and... I recognized you!!! I discovered that we met lat year on Mont Dolent !! I'm one of the 4 'Italian Equipe" you mentioned on you site!!!!!!!
a nikon coolpix 2100 (2M pixel) ... a very entry level camera but the light just happen to be perfect that day, beside I often go hard with the post-ajustment (lum, contrast, color saturation), but I say to myself I am not cheeting since it can't beat the real thing even with the most artistic treatments!!!
about Castore ridge...
I did a similar picture during summer 2003, and there was (and there is still) an enormous crevasse on the left of the picture.
This seems a pictures did a lot of year ago, when there was that crevasse.
Where is it...?
I thought it had been done during the summer when I met you in the Dolan's bivouac, than...it was strange from my point of view.... But, it is corret that had been done some just some meter befor the summit.
Anyway, it's a great picture!!!!!
