Re: I perceive...

Thanks for your vote, Romek. Looking back the jagged glacier with all those crevasses in in the early morning light was a special moment - those moments are one of the major motiviations for climbing...

Very Abstract!

Wow, Herb, that almost looks like a painting. Then, no, it's a B&W photo. Then, no! I spot that red jacket in the lower left corner. I really like this image! --mark d.

Re: Very Abstract!

Thanks for your vote & your kind words, Mark. Yeah, this picture is very special - that's the reason why I put it on SP as one of the few pic's not taken by me or my girlfriend (but at least I should be on that photo ;)). It's really just a color photo (taken with a digital SLR) without postprocessing, the reason for the cool effect is the flat light right after sunrise. I really love the jagged glacier...
