petsfed - I tried to originally, but was told to drop it down to low res. Thanks for the positive comments!
Ok, will try to upgrade it to a higher res early next week. Thanks for the support!
Stunning... absolutely stunning.
You'd be doing well to - I can't pick it even at full resolution (1312x8778). Thanks for the comments!
Dammit, qwert - now I can't stop seeing it!
That's a nice looking piece of rock.
Just re-uploaded after a bit of touching up - a little burn to the sky, some dodging and a little extra saturation to the foreground. I'm not sure - I may have overdone it a bit...
I want to see the next move!
Wow. Just... wow.
That's kinda funky... I like it
That's quite a lot of boulders...
Dunno... afraid it doesn't do all that much for me.
Dynoing into the unknown... very cool.
Now THAT is a highball! Nice pic, though the people are all a bit underexposed.
Thanks for the comments! Jimfix - No, it is the 24. The 21 goes up just left of the little bush. Yeah, it was a little damp that day, but nice and dry on the overhanging bits.
Sensational! Man, I gotta get out ice climbing again. Oh, and btw, I'd like to add my voice to those saying don't you dare crop it!
Ok, a little larger, if the mods allow... :)
Ok... I hope I get this right... Mt Jervois is the first real peak before the impressive clouds. The one standing all on its own just right of middle is Mt Spencer, and I think Mallory is just off the picture to the right. For those with the map, the picture was taken standing somewhere about halfway between Mt Jervois and the pass between Mt Halcombe and Mt Von Bulow.
Nice! Love the perspective.
Is that a ringbolt?!
Sweet! That's a 10 all the way. I love the effect of having the focus on the landscape, with the action slightly out of focus in the foreground. Also the way everything seems to funnel towards that gap in the mountains.
Now THAT is simply superb! 10
10 - 5 for each ball.
Whoa... talk about vote-bombing!
Somehow the immediate impression I got was of a gecko, camouflaged against the rock... I like it!
I've looked up at that climb in awe may a time... nice sends, and nice shot, Phil!
*ahem* Isn't that... ahh... illegal? Never mind, nice shot!
Lovely! Hard route, gear obviously placed on lead, perfect framing, DOF and exposure.
Is it just me, or is this guy seriously big?
I think there might just be enough detail there to pull it out with Photoshop.
I think I'd have to jump off on second just to enjoy the swing!
GSD I miss the mountains!
Get a room, guys!
Whoa, now this photo's been undervalued a bit... for some reason I'm really strongly reminded of Coldclimb's "it's all in your mind" series.
Hehehe... you ARE evil, aren't you!
I want to go there!
Gotta love Taipan! I've yet to get past the "looking up at it in awe" stage.
Actually, that's about as close as we got to the Tasman - we spent all our time on the Franz Josef and Fox glaciers. Lovely place to be - can't wait till I can visit again.
Great work, as usual! Damn, I miss the Grampians!
Nice climb that. Never did quite make the redpoint...
Elvislegs - don't really need to go to your profile to do that... I think you've provided more than enough cannon fodder right here.
You stitched that together from 19mm?? Nice work! What plugin did you use?
Well, first you walk for about 2 hours, then you climb a 50m 5.10c offwidth, then make your way across a 7m downwards-sloping roof.
Steep mixed climbing is scary! So much sharp stuff...
... wow. Just... wow.
Wow - opinions seem to be really polarised on this one. One 3, four 4s and 5 votes in the 6-10 range (2 9's). Comments would be great, esp. from the people who voted it down... :)
Way to go Phil! A 10 from me.
tgreene - or he might just think you're getting frisky...
Uhhh... thanks, I guess.
I turn away for a couple of weeks and you come up with a beauty like this! Your best yet.
Dunno about toxic. Not particularly edible-looking, though - they're very woody.
^^^ Are you this nice to everybody, or am I just lucky?
Coming from someone with so many awesome photos to his name, that means a lot to me. Thanks!
Nice going, Clausti! Oh, and nice glasses. ;)
Actually, my biggest problem is that he appears to be standing on the mat. There's really nothing in the image that says he's not... nice colours tho.
Only way to do Mt Barney this time of year. Beautiful!
Wow... Nice view.
Can't make it bigger here, I'm afraid... you can get a slightly bigger version at blondgecko.smugmug.com (under Honeymoon). Thanks for the comments!
Can you say "rope drag"? Nice pic though.
Heh. If there was any resting involved here, it went by far too quickly for me to notice.
