[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
More or less at 7 AM, walking along Pisco west ridge, just crossed a crevasse, we stopped to take some pictures. At an altitude of around 5500 m the light is vivid, the sky is dark blue, thanks to the uv filter too!
Hope you like it...

PS. Color slide aquired with my new scanner!!

I really like the point of view of this picture, the composition is great and dynamic. My eye followed the steps and I got a surprise, there is people in there and they're so far away! What a grand scale. Great shot. I although think it is too dark at the upper left corner but I guess you couldn't do otherwise, you needed the UV filter badly at that height! I am dizzy imagining you all in there, climbing and getting at the peak. I really thank you for sharing.



Marvellous light showing through here. Not surprised you stopped would have knocked me off my tracks.

Lovely picture of this peak.
The track lead the eye up and the people show us how surprisingly long the distance is to the top!
Nice light and I really like the colors made of the rising sun.
Best regards,

Ciao Enrico,
although itīs a aquired image, itīs really good. The sun hidden by the hill of snow gives a nice sensation with the light. I like that mix of blue colours. Nice POV and the light here is well played.
Interesting note also, I didīt know about sky at that altitude.
have a very nice day!
