Re: great shot!

Thanks! Moments like these make me glad that I remembered my camera. My friend Josh forgot to bring his.

Re: That is Classic

Thank you for your comment. I asked myself "why would you go through the misery of altitude sickness on Rainier a third time?" This pic shows why.

Re: Excellent View

Thanks! It was a lucky shot for sure. I've wondered who the climber is. I know for sure he wasn't part of our team. He might have been one of the Korean team we encountered that day or possibly with RMI. There's no way to tell.

the sea of clouds is really impressive, I have never seen anything like that in real life. I hope I will one day :)

Re: excellent

Thanks! This was a very special moment I'll never forget. Seeing this sight even affected me emotionally. It was amazing. I hope you have similar encounters just as meaningful.

Re: Definitely..

Thanks. I was very excited when I saw this happening because I knew it was going to turn out good. I took three quick shots and this is the one that turned out.

One of your Best!

This is one of my favorite photos of yours that you have taken. I liked it so much that I made it part of the logo for one of my websites.

Re: One of your Best!

Thanks Josh! This is actually my favorite shot. I think it's the best one I ever captured, so far.
