The serac frames the image nicely and the touch of red is perfect.

At the time, I wasn´t worried, but yeah, it can be. On a warmer day, at some point it just has to come down ...

Thanks Atif,

Some of the credits for the composition go to Mont Blanc, who was kind enough to create these massive seracs such that the trail couldn't avoid going right under them. My own role was to recognize the photo opportunity quickly, because we were definitely not going to stop here! Sadly, people sometimes die on Mont Blanc because these things do come down.
