Thanks a lot JC. Glad you like it, and and appreciate your taking the time to comment. It was an awesome scene. I knew I had a good shot when I was taking it.

Good luck on your 14'er quest, man, that is a fantastic goal. Hey - you like a lot of the same bands that I still do! Now, that's cool!

This is the same camera as the Kangchenjunga photo, but now I had a slightly better quality 24-85mm lens. The film was Fuji Provia 100F. I used a tripod and polarizing filter, and bracketed the exposure. I carefully framed the shot to include some foreground rocks which help add to the photo's depth. Thanks again.

At the risk of repeating nearly three years of previous comments, what a beautiful shot. Your crisp picture lets us appreciate nature's texture, from the ridges of rock and snow to the concentric arcs in foreground. Well done!

Thanks man! It was a magic moment, we had been huddled in our dining tent playing cards while a cold mist settled around the camp. Suddenly that broke and I could see warm light outside.

I stepped outside and my jaw dropped. I raced for my tripod and set it carefully up carefully include those foreground rocks (of which some are missing in this scan). I knew I had a winner here. By the way this shot of Baruntse was taken at the same time but shooting north instead of south.

Thanks again.
