Great range of light, and contrast between the draped snow and toothy rock. Not many mountaineering shots are of this quality.

Nice job on the tones and a very satisfying composition.  I'm a bit less keen on the burning in the sky - perhaps just a bit heavy on the left side?

How fortunate for everybody that you had enough bad weather to encourage you to pull this image out of exile.  The composition and range of textures make it a real winner.

The pictures in black and white are very evocative, and this stands out in a special way

Beautiful BW shot. This one deserves a print.

"Once a journey is designed, equipped, and put in process, a new factor enters and takes over. A trip, a safari, an exploration, is an entity, different from all other journeys. It has personality, temperament, individuality, uniqueness. A journey is a person in itself; no two are alike. And all plans, safeguards, policing, and coercion are fruitless. We find after years of struggle that we do not take a trip; a trip takes us." - JOHN STEINBECK

Thanks Kajo...this one makes my print list, i get to spend much less time then id like in the Alps so they tend to be a bit special to me. I like your foot note in your profile, reminds me of a John Lennon quote..."Life is what happens to you when your busy making plans"
