Congratulations, very nice shot!
Thanks Eva, glad you like the picture :-)
with Eva, this is really a terrific shot!
Grazie Fabrizio! Actually I have made so many Jalovec pictures on that day that I missed this one. Last week it rushed by on my screen saver and I thought: "wait a minute, what was that?".
I should pay more attention to my screen saver :-)
Really fantastic photo Gangolf!
Thanks a lot!
very intense shot. A beautiful and intimidating looking mountain.
And as you can see to the right of the picture, Vid attached it to a route, which goes up that face making use of ledges to get to the top.
Are these recent conditions gangolf?
No, not recent - September 19th (as the caption suggests ;-)). We had a day of thunderstorms on Sept 18th when a real lot of rain and snow came down. Most of it melted away again but by the end of September another bad weather window deposited half a metre oof snow on the Julians.
photo. One would image much taller peaks.
Thanks Ejnar. I think it's the dark sky which gives you the impression. We usually don't see this type of sky at our elevations in the alps. A bit of snow and a polarization filter will do the trick, however
Starkly beautiful and crisp. I can almost feel the wind. Ausgetzeichnet!
Actually it wasn't that windy that day. I can't say about the summit as I wasn't there but these clouds hovered around Jalovec the whole day. Some mintes before it still looked like this
