Love the color. The thrill of alpine climbing..
Thank you! It was cloudy and raining/snowing those days and we were lucky to have several hours of good weather just to get to the summit and come back to the attack camp.
I wish I could have been in the team with you. Awesome stuff . Glad you had a clear shot to the summit. Thanks for sharing.
Great Blue sky
I have climbed Island Peak several times but I don't have one picture even close to that brilliant!
Thanks! Frankly speaking the idea of the picture is not mine. It's Denis' (he is on the shot). I just had to push the button...
... the button of the very good Pentax K20. Have you also enhanced your super shots a little in CS4? Are the originals in RAW format and processed only in camera?
Thanks Claudio! 'Super shots...' I could listen to it endlessly :-).
Yeah, I love my camera. Far from being the best one but I think a very good compromise for me (that doesn't mean I would throw away something like Canon EOS 5D Mark II if somebody gives it to me :)) ).
Yes, the usual way is RAW => PS4 (not Mac as yours but still) => SP.
To be able to just throw your ice axe away like that. ;-) At least you brought your spare... right? Anyways it's a good photo!
Cheers Josh Lewis
You are right Josh, it's extremely risky. Fortunately, Denis (who is on the photo) didn't feel very good that morning so the ice axe couldn't attain escape velocity.
Good luck! Igor
