Wonderful colours, great composition, Juha, but a surprising shot for me... Looks like a little climbing exercise for beginners, but not like a mountain almost 7000 m high. ;-)) Greetings, Peter
You are right Peter, when you are very close to a big mountain, the sight is foreshortened. This simply means that everything seems to be closer and smaller than it really is. You notice this when you start climbing... This photo was taken at a height of 4200 meters from the basecamp. The actual summit is the second "bump" from the left which seems to be lower than the point on the west face to it's right. It takes three full climbing days from basecamp to the summit, weather permitting.
Nice picture, greetings from germany!!!
Marvellous light, you captured it in the right moment, Juha, with an excellent contrast to the black in front
Thanks pictsonthemove. It was easy to wait for right light and moment: nothing else to do at basecamp...
You mean, the hard part was carrying the camera up? ;-)
I'm not so much in hillhiking, nevertheless hiking but you can see some pics from Ben Nevis and in this time my Mamiya was around 12kk
Bella y romántica, plagada de luces y olores. Felicidades.
Muchas gracias eduardodequintana! Saludo desde Finlandia!
