It seems to be in the Alps! Beautiful peak. Like
It is, Luca - the Southern Alps! I imagine I can see you climbing Silberhorn (the icy peak in the centre) resting a while before you descend along the arête prior to your final ascent to High Peak of Aoraki/Mt Cook.
I Like-2 this very nice photo !!
Greetings and best wishes from Greece-Piraeus.
Nice collection of snow-capped mountain photos from 2 continents. LIKEd
Great shot Ian, I think there was danger of avalanches. Greetings Berend
Thank you Nikos. The ice on those mountains is pretty treacherous as you can see, and climbers don't like being too long traversing some of these faces.

Thank you, Ah-Pong.
I have enjoyed some of the mountains of Europe and of New Zealand. But I haven't been close to too many of Asia's great mountains yet.
Glad you have enjoyed the set.
Absolutely, Berend. Some of the routes for climbing risk some of the precarious slopes and the climbers don't like being too long on some of the exposed stretches. This is also a tectonically active area, and earthquakes do dislodge sections of rock as well as ice at times. Apparently unrelated to an earthquake a big section of that steep rocky face of Aoraki became a huge landslide a few years ago lowering High Peak (mountain on left) by some 10M.
I am proud to have this photo in my collection.
There's certainly plenty here to excite as well as threaten a mountain climber! Sure pleased that you like seeing such a mountain, Ralph. Thanks for he great compliment of adding this to your favourites basket.
