The most attractive

photograph of Whitney I've seen in a long
time. The lighting is breathtaking! Did you
spend the night up there?

I like the way the sky turned out - beautiful !!

Re: The most attractive

Thank you for the feedback Lcarreau. I managed to catch the pinnicles before, during and after sunrise...the light was excellent because there were some clouds over the Inyo Mountains that moderated the direct sunlight a bit making for some nice opportunities

I made it to the top Sept. 1993 at age 47. My partner who was 5 yrs. younger made it to the campground at 12,900 but could not move the next day. Tragedy--he passed away in a los Angeles restaurant from a peice of chicken a few years later in his early 50s.

Re: Memories

Congratulations on your ascent. Mt. Whitney is no easy task...My condolences to you for your loss...I am glad that my photo was able to bring back some positive memories for you. Thank you very much for sharing those thoughts.
