There is something I really like with this photo. Can´t really find out what it is. The lines...maybe.
It is the look towards the summit and the little whisper "You or me? Today I will not retreat."
There are many repetitive photos on the Hood page. This one is different and spectacular though. Excellent shot!
I must confirm that Martin, exactly my thoughts, different than sea of other Hood shots and excellent motif!
Thanks. I just bought a digital camera. The SLR always stayed in the pack when I was climbing, but these digital cameras are so small I can carry it strapped to my chest. That makes it possible to take impromptu shots like this one.
The hard linear shapes in the snow contrast nicely to the billowy clouds and give the photo a great sense of direction.
Capturing the climber wearing dark clothing right on the ridge crest with the clouds behind does an excellent job of capturing a climber's profile in a way similar to backlighting, but without the problems usually seen with exposure on the foreground and background.
Agreed! And here are your five stars!
Hey, thanks a lot!
I feel my calves burn.
Absolutely great shot!
Thanks for posting!
Another your great shots!
Thanks very much! You have many good photos yourself!
Thanks Tanya. I've been admiring your canyon photos which are also spectacular. Cheers!
Thanks! Seems those in this group either like to get way up high or make their way through the bowels of the earth.
SP is a diverse community. There is also a fair amount of beta on hiking trails in relatively flat areas posted to this site. Get high or get low, so long as you get out. It's all good and fun!
But climbers are so cool... love the climbing shots the most!
