  • Commented on photo Double Arch in the Odd Rock Formations challenge

  • Submitted a challenge entry Layered Snow Mountain
    The distinct layers of snow that cover the peak of Breithorn are fascinating to observe. You can see climbers making the ascent.  The Breithorn (4164 meters, 13,658 feet) is an ideal summit for a first experience at high altitude. The route remains mostly on gentle snow slopes.  The cable cars out of Zermatt provide fantastic views of the Alps also including the Matterhorn.  This photo was taken from the cable car which explains the 1/1000 shutter speed.

  • You have always been a kind and positive commenter.  Thank you for that.
  • It seems prudent to ignore the photographic judgment of someone whose - own entry in the "black challenge" had a predominant RED object and finished 78/82 - most recent Challenge entries had 17 of ...
