Real nice shot! Gives a very good sense of the drama...
What sort of camera are you using?
I use a Minolta 9xi since ten years back. It was Minolta's last real try to break into the pro-market and it's a really good one. A chip gave in this time (first time anything breaks on it) and I had huge difficulties to get the exposure/light/colors right.
I'll go digital soon. I'm just waiting for the price/quality ratio to be a bit better.
Cool! It just makes the photo even better.
With a HQ E6 roll of film and a HQ scanner it's still better to shoot analog....
But I have the same considerations as you, as I'm carrying a PENTAX K-1000 + heavy lenses. So I'll go digitall soon too...
Keep up the good work :-)
I can sense the danger.
Thanks for the votes and nice comments. I'm glad you liked my photos.
Absolutely super image!
Thanks for the comment and vote.
I can assure you it was breathtaking to be up there on that route as well.
That shot make my pulse race.
When the snow sometimes broke a bit on that ridge my pulse was also racing ;-)
A very valid point.
It's so hard to resist taking "in-action" shots, but I know I have been passing the limit of what's reasonable at times.
thanks for sharing!
...and thank you for checking my photos and the vote!
Much too steep on unstable snow for me. But, to do a big mountain like this you would have to take chances like this.
I aspire to check out all your photos.
The conditions that season was bad all the time. Lots of unstable snow, heavy snowfall and avalanches.
Thanks for checking by.
You really have the greatest high-altitude photos on SP. So cool.
I like to shoot in these tricky situations. After all, those are the times you want remember. Not the slow, boring walk on a perfect trail.
