Skripko walking on slowly on...
Skripko walking on slowly on the exposed traverse at 6400m. Fixed ropes yes, but very unstable snow conditions. And a potential 500m fall down to the glacier below.

West face of Baltoro Kangri (7800m) in the background.

Hi Corax,



Real nice shot! Gives a very good sense of the drama...



What sort of camera are you using?

Thanks Lui!



I use a Minolta 9xi since ten years back. It was Minolta's last real try to break into the pro-market and it's a really good one. A chip gave in this time (first time anything breaks on it) and I had huge difficulties to get the exposure/light/colors right.



I'll go digital soon. I'm just waiting for the price/quality ratio to be a bit better.

Hi Corax;



Cool! It just makes the photo even better.



With a HQ E6 roll of film and a HQ scanner it's still better to shoot analog....



But I have the same considerations as you, as I'm carrying a PENTAX K-1000 + heavy lenses. So I'll go digitall soon too...



Keep up the good work :-)

When the snow sometimes broke a bit on that ridge my pulse was also racing ;-)

Hmmmm.
A very valid point.
It's so hard to resist taking "in-action" shots, but I know I have been passing the limit of what's reasonable at times.

Much too steep on unstable snow for me. But, to do a big mountain like this you would have to take chances like this.
I aspire to check out all your photos.

The conditions that season was bad all the time. Lots of unstable snow, heavy snowfall and avalanches.

I like to shoot in these tricky situations. After all, those are the times you want remember. Not the slow, boring walk on a perfect trail.
