Congratulations on this well deserved photo of the day! A beautiful moment - and well captured! I'm always fascinated again and again by this view one gets from Kala Pattar!
Many greetings to you, icypeak,
Thanks so much Eric! I know, the view is unbelievable, it's like you're in a dream...massive gorgeous mountains in every direction.
I like the full view where you can see ABC at the bottom left. Very cool shot, thanks for sharing!
Hi Kris, the base camp in amazing, a city within itself. I spent 2 nights there...with the glacier crackling under my tent and loud avalanches all night through..just fantastic!!
"Uh, you forgot me Sylva! Great snap girlyfriend!
Well hi there! The headlamps thing...your memory is too good for you own good! Hmm, not sure where Larry is but he should know that during this trip we mainly ate eggs, potatos and lentils for 3 weeks (the primary local diet)..that would have killed him.
Yes, yes, ...
I'm writing this from SE Asia. I'm very desparate for a processed hot dog right now.
For crying out loud! The only "cool breeze"
I've been feeling has been comin' off the
damn ocean! Shiver me timbers, mate !!!
In my next life, I will enjoy flying over a
glacier as a raven. Never under-estimate the
power of positive thinking ... : )
Hey...enjoy your tirp Larry! You can load up on hot dogs when you get home.
Yeah, and with loads of mustard!
By the way, nice photograph!
to the Photo Of The week :-D Beautiful picture. What's the name of the summit just below Everest to the left? Pumori must be more to the left and much higher right?
Immediately to the left is Everest West Shoulder. Farther left in Tibet is Changtse (North Peak). Correct, Pumori is off the picture to the left. It is lower than Changste and the Shoulder, but is closer and more dramatic when viewed from Kala Pattar.
Yeah, great photo.
Thanks Andre..it's very hard to take a bad picture over there, ok, there was the one I stuck my big thumb in, but otherwise impossible! And Nelson, thank you very much for the information, I appreciate it ..your pics of the area are super, especially of the sherpa sister and brother.
Really cool picture...lots going on.
Thanks so much! Well put, lots going on..and that was the case whichever direction you look in..a truly beautiful place. cheers!
Would love to see that view in person!
Very nice shot, thanks for sharing.
Thank you! Yes, a fantastic view it was, one I've waited to see for a long time. It's strange, I've read so many books on climbing Everest, but no one ever mentions what an effort it is just to get to basecamp...or what good luck it is to get there healthy. But, it was worth every blister! Hope you have a chance to see it one day.
Congratulation! Can´t wait to talk to you when I get back from Europe. Nice photos.
Thanks so much Aranka! Yes, it was truly beautiful, more than I ever imagined. Europe...lucky you!! I wish you a nice trip and we'll be in touch when you return.
