My Cheese Is Cheesier Than Yours

My Cheese Is Cheesier Than Yours

The problem with a tick list is that sometimes it gets in the way of ridiculous photo objectives like this. Besides, I would have had to tape up for Tax Man. Photo by Doug Wright. Thanks man.

A stunning shot full of grace and beauty. Reminiscent of some of Ansel Adams' best.

Oh, just lob off for 35' on that side. Why risk the downclimb?

the climb is easy (5.6), just don't fall off and you'll be fine. it's the 40' or so of air that gets to people when they try to stand up. If you look at some of the other shots of this rock (eg. <a href="http://www.rockclimbing.com/photos.php?Action=Show&PhotoID=13595">Paul Addison has a blurry shot that shows the drop</a> or <a href="http://www.rockclimbing.com/photos.php?Action=Show&PhotoID=18422">this one</a> is a standard), you'll see what I mean. the side of the aiguille that I am hanging off of drops about 30' to the deck from where my feet are, so while it's trivial to get up there, it's rather important that you DFU while your traveling companions take pictures. :-)

Awesome Shot! - - looks like (with the only 40ft high summit) it'd be a great warm up to the stand up summit of Acient Art in the Fisher towers area! (Utah)

I gotta make it to the Fishers this winter. And I need to take BobD up on his threat to drag me up Fine Jade. There was just too damn much snow in the Sierra this past winter... went BC skiing every weekend instead.

I'll have to go back this winter and take care of that problem! Or do the same thing on the Lady of the Needles.

you pop out of the sky which is cool but the colors seem a bit contrasty...it's cool enough a shot to almost look fake

I pumped up the saturation a bit by manipulating the channels in
Photoshop. There might be some artifacts from the unsharp mask, but the
shot's real -- it's a 5.6 solo in Lost Horse, near the Atlantis wall. Part of the reason it's contrasty and shallow DOF is simply that Doug shot it with a 50/1.4, wide open.
