Pico23 I haven't heard this story. Is it posted somewhere? What the heck happened?

I wrote a 8pg article on it (photos included) that was published in my alpine clubs journal.

Nuts and Bolts of the accident:

really a stupid mistake top of the climb, reached for something blowing away (partners glove) and edged my crampons. tough to self arrest on ice :) even harder intermittently airborne/bouncing and touching down (or as my partner put it on the way out, "you must be tired from the changing so many time zones during your flight"). i had three attempts at arresting and couldn't get the pick to bite at all, just bounced out, tearing some muscles in my sternum from the force. the 40ft vertical onto the 20ft snow pack was the highlight of the flight.

In the end, just a torn ACL to show for it. Repaired now, so with any luck nothing but some time and some medical bills and an renewed appreciation for the fact that mountains don't mess around. They don't know grades or elevations. Gravity is gravity, wind is wind, cold is cold and mistakes can be serious.

Give me a PM and I'll send you the article to your email.

Wes,
Here's a picture taken with that new lens of yours. I did not take it but I thought you and everyone would appreciate it.

Paul, cool photo for sure, though I have had my 70-200 (non-is) for a couple years now. It is a rad lens, though the 400 2.8L IS is even better. The sharpest lens I have ever used. Amazing, really. Except that it weighs nearly 13 pounds and costs more then all of my other gear, combined...

A few from the ECAC Hockey Tournament in Albany.

#5 ranked Clarkson defeated #18 ranked Quinnapiac for the ECAC title. #14 ranked St Lawrence beat #11 ranked Darthmouth for 3rd place in the tournament.

Good seats but the glass was beat to crap in front of me. Shot with my old SLR (small and easy to sneak in, camera in one pocket, lens in other) and my slower travel tele lens. Mostly ISO 3200 JPEG. Really it did OK but so sluggish compared to the new one.

Spearhead show in Asheville last week. I love that town, and the show was amazing - perhaps the best live show I have seen.







Mistake or art?

I just got my Canon 24-105 F4 Image Stabilized lens. Here's one of the first shots taken with it. I think this along with my 10-22 mm will be my two climbing lenses. After a 10 year absense I'm ready to start climbing and shooting again!

Hey Guys, those are all some great shots. Im pretty new here (been climbing for about 10 days Wink and I love it) I figured I would add in some of my non climbing photos for you to see.

My backyard / An Old latch
 

A sunset in Virginia


Along a stream up in Maine


Catesby's Trillium in the Smokies


Trout lilt in the Smokies


Thyme-Leaved Bluets (actual flower size - 1/3 inch)


Some Goldenrod
  

An icy cold stream with a few icicles


Sky in my backyard during a fall sunset (No photoshop work done here, strait from camera w/ polarizing filter)


The rest may have some minor color adjustments done in PS, but for the most part they are as shot.

I hope you enjoyed the shots.

Wes,
I love the shot of the dog with that green ball. I can just feel the slime as you pick it up to throw it!

Those concert shots are fine. Did they let you on stage? What kind of ISO and shutter speed did you need to caputure the guitarist mid-flight?

Thanks-Paul

Thanks much, those balls do get a bit slimy for sure. But, they just keep bringing them back. Over and over and over.

Nope not on stage, just bouncing with the hippies in the crowd. ISO 3200, F2.8, Av mode was how my 5D was set up, actual EXIF should be still embedded in the photos. The light was all over the place, so I had a lot of really bad shots as well. And, I just had my 15mm Fisheye, which was too wide, really. Next time going to try to bring something like 16-35 2.8, or even a faster prime. The show was killer, and I can't wait to see them again.

The "mistake or art" shot is actually the best of the bunch. they are all good, just that's the only one that catches the eye as unique.

nice work.

RAWHIDE, you should fade the WM a bit more or make it smaller. It's too visible to the point of you nice work being completely obscured by it.

Thanks for sure. I am kinda partial to that one as well. First time at a show with gear, so it was a cool learning experience.

And, some photos..

I put the camera on a tripod and shot remotely for this one. This is from my local action pistol club match from this last weekend. The idea is to shoot and move as quickly as you can and still be relatively accurate. You go too fast and you lose because your accuracy goes to hell, if you go too slow because your trying to be accurate you will also lose! This shooter is doing something which requires a lot of practice to do well and that is move and shoot at the same time!
