Last steps to the top of Lone Peak
Bruce Christensen captured this unusual image of me exiting the pre-summit chimney into the Sun and sparkling blowing snow of the summit cone. Thanks for the permission to use it here!

Yep, it made me gasp with awe, too. Of course, it is one of those rare moments which look better in a photograph than in realworld :) but gotta appreaciate that!

Thanks Bob! I kind of "traded" it for another profile-quality shot made at exactly the same spot - but looking at the opposite direction. I am starting to feel that maybe it wasn't a perfectly fair trade LOL.

I like that other one just as much for the action and perspective it shows. The original I commented on is more artistic, but yours is just as good in its own ways.

Thanks! We actually tried to remix the same shot this winter. There was no wind but ZeeJay kicked the snow a few times, sending a shower of crystals flying into the air. Alas, it didn't turn out that good on camera! Hard to time is right :) The real blowing snow works a lot better...

Beautiful shot! It almost makes me hear music in my head as you reach the top! With the spark of the sun and the spray of snow!! Awesome! Thanks for sharing
