Jamapa Glacier after Five Months without Precipitation

As we started up the Jamapa Glacier, the sun appeared over the horizon and illuminated the penitentes that had formed during a particularly long stretch without precipitation in the area.

that low angle sunrise makes it look like a sea of flames.

Re: Gorgeous

Thanks Tomek!

It really was an amazing moment. I had to get the camera out quickly with some cold fingers to take this picture! Thanks again, take care.

Re: cool

Thanks, it was a sweet day! Exhausting (stepping over and crunching down on the penitentes on the decent), but sweet! Take care.

Re: En Fuego!

Thank you so much! Let me tell ya, it felt like a pretty cold fire that morning... and that's coming from a boy who grew up on the Canadian praries! Take care.

The blue of the sky alone would make this a favorite...and then the glacier! Is the "hill" in the back the summit or is there more to the left?

Re: sweet

Thanks hshdude! The peak in the picture is the top of the mountain (although you can't see the summit in the picture)- the crater rim is up there and once you reach it, you just have to make a short traverse to the right to the summit. It was a pretty exhilerating day although maybe not so much as being on a live volcano! I guess I like my volcanoes extinct! :)

Magnificent Photo!

One of the best pictures on SP I've seen in a while! The subject, the lighting, the composition are all on wonderful display here. Orizaba has been a dream of mine for a long time. It's pictures like these that inspire me to go there!

Re: Magnificent Photo!

Thank you for the kind words Tahawus. I know the feeling of being inspired by a picture, so I am flattered anytime that one of my pictures might do the same for someone else. Orizaba is a great experience - you'll love it. Take care.
