Nice set of pictures.
Thanks, it was a very nice set of weather that day!
Josh, this is another real "strike" of yours! These pictures are just fantastic!
Cheers and congrats,
Thanks Eric, tomorrow I hope to post many more from my latest exciting adventure.
Josh, I'm mostly interested in the Himalaya, but I have to admit that this set of photos is just gorgeous.
Thanks so much for sharing,
The Himalaya is certainly an impressive part of the world. But even with my "small" Cascade Peaks I see from my home have some views that I would not trade for gold.
Gotcha. And the thing I appreciate the most is your skilled eye at capturing that beauty - something you do very well indeed.
As far as visual impact goes, I believe your beloved Cascade peaks are close to Himalayan scale. What I mean is this: From what I understand, Everest Base Camp is around 17,500 feet. Everest's summit is 29,028 feet. So it's only (!?) around 11,500 vertical feet from EBC to the summit. Sure - when you get there it's 29,000 feet, WAAY bigger than any other peak in the world, including the Cascades. But the vertical rise from base camp is not that much larger than the vertical rise from the surroundings to some of the high Cascades.
I'm glad you live in such a beautiful area, have the skill to capture it so well, and are willing to share your photos.
And speaking of the Cascades, Hozomeen would look at home in the Himalaya... what an impressive peak!
