Re: Very nice.........

thanks Bill, would have preferred more stable weather since we were on such a committing climb, but the clouds made for some great shots like this...cheers

Nice picture

Great combination of snow and rocks.
But seems to be rotated 6° CCW. (clouds)

Re: Nice picture

No tripod while climbing?!... ts ts ts

I like good pictures. I think we all love great pictures, but with this horizon it seems "instable". Just 10 seconds with photoshop and the photo gets 100%.

Hey, these shots, the whole gallery, are awesome.

What kind of camera are you using?

Re: Camera?

cheap camera mate, just put myself in a position and terrain that makes me out to be a better photographer than I really am...cold and hard route, so small digital camera that slips in chest pocket is essential for us, I always use the HP brand because they take the biggest beating...happened to have lost my last one on Mount Alberta descent and was using my wife's Samsung here...I still recommend the HP Photosmarts for backcountry adventure, because of their durability......cheers
