Thank you Paolo!
One must be a man of peculiar talent to take a bad photo in such a beautiful place.

Thanks Davis! Pleased to hear that. Well, I must print it full size one day (it's near 1GB actually).
Have you noticed climbers in the center?

awe inspiring just to see a photo; the experience itself? I can barely imagine.

Well, I'll try to help you :)

Imagine, you've spent 3 weeks in Himalayas. Most of the days with bad weather. You were in front of Everest but couldn't see it in clouds. You ascended Chhukhung Ri but the views weren't much better. You attempted Ama Dablam but found out that you could go higher than Camp 2 not earlier than 2-3 weeks later. Now you've got 4 days for Island Peak but it snows the night before the summit day. Then, by 5 a.m. it stops snowing and several hours later you're on the top. Lhotse, Nuptse, Ama Dablam, Makalu, Baruntse and... no clouds!

Yeah man, it was fantastic!

P.S. But maybe not as exciting as bank robbery ;)
