Fantastic photo

only three votes so far... another prime example of the skewed voting behavior on SP.

Anyhow, by far the most exhilirating photo in a long time here. Great shot, fantastic and dramatic scenery.

Re: Fantastic photo

Truly awesome. But hey, SoCal, it's not really voting "behavior," it's just the odd system. This was posted at a low traffic time and also it doesn't happen to display to advantage in the teeny tiny cropped thumbnail, so people don't click on it. A shame how things get buried due to those factors.

Re: absolutely amazing!

Yes, I am always awed by the Polish performance and spirit in the Himalayas, especially regarding winter ascents.

when you take a look at the highest rated photo on SP, and the third highest; This photo is a bit similar and in the same range of quality compared to those photos. Therefore it really doesn't make any sense that this one didn't even make it POTD. One of the best shots I've seen lately! cheers, Lodewijk

What a photo!

It is true that voting system is odd. It is pity that photos like this one pass unseen. I came across this photo totally accidentally... :)
I'm glad i did!
