Great Perspective

Unusual perspective of Everest looking up the Western Cwm and the Lhotse Face. Nicely done!

Re: Great Perspective

Thank you! I can't take credit. It's hard to take a bad photo from that location!

An amazing shot of Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse and many other great ones standing parade in fantastically clear weather! Great job!!

Re: Stunning!

Thanks Eric. The ironic thing is that we had bad weather for a good part of the trip. When we went up on our summit attempt, we were quite uncertain of getting there due to the weather.

Re: Stunning!

Yeah, but you made it, you climbed Cho Oyu, you had that indescribable view from the summit, you also got back down unharmed, I assume - End good, all good!!

It was a pleasure to trek around the base of some of those peaks and look up at them. I also had a good view of Cho Oyu from Gokyo Ri. But seeing this view from your perspective is really amazing!

Re: Stunning

Yes, This area is one of the most stunning areas I've been to.
BTW, I've always enjoyed your contributions on the Cascades and refere to them when going up there.
