Oh wow, gee I remember that beautiful shot, the funny thing is I didn't know where it was from and when I climbed the route I never connected the two!

Thanks for pointing me to it. My picture may be nice, but it's not in the same class!!

This is just such an astonishingly beautiful ridge! A superb photo!
What a thrill it must have been to climb there!
Cheers,

Thanks Koen, it really is, and heck, it's got views and situations of a caliber well above its scale. This is nice for a "relaxed" feeling that enhances the enjoyment!

Ha, you are totally right Hans...zooming in, the fella appears to stand on the blue mountains behind. I thought it was funny how incredibly skinny his leg looked :D.

Enjoy the winter,
