Last steps to the top of Lone Peak

Last steps to the top of Lone Peak

Bruce Christensen captured this unusual image of me exiting the pre-summit chimney into the Sun and sparkling blowing snow of the summit cone. Thanks for the permission to use it here! 1/26/08 2:13pm. Fujifilm FinePix F31.

Re: flying sparks

Yep, it made me gasp with awe, too. Of course, it is one of those rare moments which look better in a photograph than in realworld :) but gotta appreaciate that!

Re: Awesome

Thanks a lot! It's a great inspiration to hear it from someone with as cool a collection of pictures as yours.

But give all the credits for this shot to Bruce!

Re: Very...

Thanks a lot, Romek, and condolescences for the loss of your friend. May the mountains stand like eternal monuments! Eternity for us is but a moment for them.

Re: Very cool

Thanks Bob! I kind of "traded" it for another profile-quality shot made at exactly the same spot - but looking at the opposite direction. I am starting to feel that maybe it wasn't a perfectly fair trade LOL.

Re: Very cool

I like that other one just as much for the action and perspective it shows. The original I commented on is more artistic, but yours is just as good in its own ways.

Re: So good

Thanks! We actually tried to remix the same shot this winter. There was no wind but ZeeJay kicked the snow a few times, sending a shower of crystals flying into the air. Alas, it didn't turn out that good on camera! Hard to time is right :) The real blowing snow works a lot better...

Beautiful shot! It almost makes me hear music in my head as you reach the top! With the spark of the sun and the spray of snow!! Awesome! Thanks for sharing

Amazing Picture!

Nice capture with the forward scatter of the sun's rays off the snow spray!
