Thanks eza, It was really amazing to see the mountain's shadow! I took a shot zoomed in of just the shadow, then pulled back to wide angle to get the signpost in the scene. I would liked to have moved to a position to line them up better, but there was no way to do that, and the shadow was gone in a minute anyway.



I'm planning to use this as the banner photo for a SP trip report that I hope to have by next week. Glad you like the shot. - Nelson

I'm already looking forward that trip report. And -by the way- I don't think a better position would have improved the shot. If anything, it would have been as good as this one.

Nelson- Congratulations on a great shot and a great climb! I was #1 to read your trip report- it was every bit as good as I expected it would be. You definitely raised the bar on Kili Trip Reports! Thanks!

Thanks much BJ, glad you like the TR. It took a while to post it because I wanted to include the safari photos, since that was a big part of the trip. But the mountain really was fantastic!

The angle and the disposition is very odd and it's great to see it.
Beautiful.

We had already left the summit and my jaw dropped when I looked back and saw the shadow of the peak. I tried a couple of different compositions by zooming, but decided I liked this the bast. Thanks for your comment.
