Re: Nice sepia...

The camera did it then I guess.
Unless you put a huge filter over the sun... :o)
Anyway it looks very nice !!

Re: Wonderful ridge

that cornice in the middle of your pic looks pretty insecure.

Re: Wonderful ridge

That's why I'd not try walking on the edge:)) Anyway after a few days of heavy snowfall the whole ridge was pretty unstable:/

Re: Wonderful ridge

Yes we had, as it was the only nice day during my 2weeks long holidays. I hope you'll visit this great place and have more luck!!

Re: Wonderful ridge

Thanks a lot. Maybe I will try next year. Seems to be too hard for winter climbing for me.

Outstanding photo!

I have been crazy about ridge traverses lately. Still, I would never venture on this one. Did anyone ever walked this line?

Re: Outstanding photo!

In fact in the season when conditions are good it tends to be crowded, it's very airy but not that difficult. Even on my pic you can see a man and a rope, but they withdrew due to too much snow and slow progress. Come to Europe and have a try:-)

sepia??

As great as this photo is, I have to question the lighting.. was this done through your camera??

Re: sepia??

Everything was done only with my camera (and not a good one to be honest). None of the photos I posted here was touched by any computer software. Mainly because I have no knowledge about enhancing the quality of photos on computer, my knowlegde about photography is also limitted. I just had been lucky to be in the wright place in a perfect moment, believe it or not.
I hope it sated your curiosity...

Interesting

this somewhat different rendering of a great crest and a great shot.
However, I like version 313444 better!
