This photo was taken in the middle of the Southwest Face of Monte Averau, looking out to Passo Giau. The rock was not the best, and it was kind of forboding when the walls started to overhang - but a moderate passage was just possible!

Early July, 2001.

Re: Geeeeeeeez!!

Yes you do! Hey I just fell out of my chair laughing at "Daddy at Work" great. Is your profile pic with the sweet crack and #3 Camelot on Outer Space above the pillar? drool...

Come out to the eastern alps in the summer and let's climb something. :-)

Re: Geeeeeeeez!!

Thanks Michael (been a fan of your website for a few years now - awsome & inspirational stuff!). Yup - that's one of the 2 sweet handcrack pitches of OS (don't recall which) - makes me miss summer.

Thanks for the alps invite - we'll have to wait for that unfortunately (thinking of Europe in '07). If you ever come back this way, look us up for climbing in PNW.

Take care,

Green tint is film or land?

Seems like photos of European Alps and Dolomites usually have similar tint of green in photos. Is that due to the true landscape colors? Or to film available in Europe?

Re: Green tint is film or land?

The film is Fuji Velvia, I think we brought it from the U.S.. So it's all the landscape, modulo some sloppy slide scanning.

Re: Green tint is film or land?

I have been going to the Dolomites for 10 years now, and the only green tint I have seen is bad developing/copying. So go digital, and get rid of tints. (Should there still be any you can edit them away with any photo printing program.)

Re: Green tint is film or land?

That is cool. Well anyway, I think the picture is okay as it is. I don't necessarily think it is too green as I was there and it looks right to me :D.

Re: Green tint is film or land?

Didn't mean to imply anything wrong with it. I have heard that Fuji film emphasizes greens and blues, whereas Kodak emphasizes yellows and reds. Maybe its the Fuji factor.

Former clients in my Alaska river guiding used to send me prints from Europe that looked different than my Kodak slides of the same trips. Couldn't ever figure out what the difference was.

Your photos from Cascades are some of the best on SP. Thank you.

Re: Green tint is film or land?

Ah that is interesting. It is kind of creepy that we have such differences! Even worse, we can get addicted to one tint - for myself, Velvia is my tin god. Now I'm taking digital pics, and I do a special bit of processing to re-create the Velvia look. It's the brilliant blue that gets me hooked. Thanks for the compliment, happy climbing this summer!!
