Beutiful Shot

Excellent shot. What camera are you using?

Re: Beutiful Shot

a nikon coolpix 2100 (2M pixel) ... a very entry level camera but the light just happen to be perfect that day, beside I often go hard with the post-ajustment (lum, contrast, color saturation), but I say to myself I am not cheeting since it can't beat the real thing even with the most artistic treatments!!!

The best shots...

transport you there. This one does that. Amazing. I can almost feel the ice shards in the wind.

I have to agree with Bob Smith

I can feel the wind in my face. This is one of the best I have seen on this site.

Strange picture...

about Castore ridge...
I did a similar picture during summer 2003, and there was (and there is still) an enormous crevasse on the left of the picture.
This seems a pictures did a lot of year ago, when there was that crevasse.
Where is it...?

Re: Strange picture...

must have been an other one that I never knew it was there...just to make sure it is just before the summit looking eastward

Re: Strange picture...

Hi skagen,
I thought it had been done during the summer when I met you in the Dolan's bivouac, than...it was strange from my point of view.... But, it is corret that had been done some just some meter befor the summit.
Anyway, it's a great picture!!!!!
