10 points for sticking the landing. The "proof it's not photoshop photo series is excellent!
It's so cool that you were able to shoot when the "lighting technician" gave you the opportunity.
What great work - you'e an artist! How long did it take you to create this? It's so well done. Very surreaslistic; perhaps it should have been placed in the "Artistic" category though....
Yes, Tai....after I peeled off into the wall, I stepped back up and made it to the anchors without incident. Looking forward to the next time, and completing the climb without falling.
There is a quotation from a climber I heard once...I don't remember the author, nor the text ver batim, but the gist of it was that the hardships the person faces while out there (hard ground for bed, "functional" victuals in comparison to a home-cooked meal, no hot shower, etc.) can serve as a reminder of that for which he is grateful.
That's how I would say "this is climbing"......
Great job, as usual. I like the blueish color inner glow I see looking into the shirt, too. Hoping you'll do more "invisible climbers" in a series the way you did with the "all in your mind" ones.
There seems to be so much emotion within this photo, which is incredible, given the stoicism of the porters. It's a beautiful shot, with the mountains in the backgorund melding into the clouds and sky. To me it is so ethereal; containing all that ever was (the mountains and view) with precisiely one moment in time (the eye contact being made through the camera lense). Very nice. Did you post a trip report? If so, would you kindly provide the link?
...uh, probably. It's "Santa's Escape," and it is the route that Tai has gotten some of his photos voted onto the front page...so, yes, I would have to say.
Tai set this route up for us (or actually Sarah did, and he supervised). This was on Saturday of the PA Gunks Gathering V2, as seen in the Events & Gatherings forum of rockclimbing.com.....
I think this is exceptional work. Great job.
What a beautiful moment you've captured. She looks like she's dancing up that face.
It's 5.10d with an R for pro(or lack thereof....)
For once...I have to agree with Bumblie. I am sorry to say that, as I don't want to appear a catty bitch, but....well, there you have it.
I rated the photo just to assist in keeping a front page status. The internet dialog/research available when one pays attention is fascinating to a young(climbwise only) one like me..... Who says rc is just a bunch of newbie wanks.....ha. As for the photo, if you saw some of my shots, you'd understand why I don't critique about the quality, but I think the photo is nice.
I like the one static part of Curt is his right hand; everything else is in motion. It's a great shot, but I haven't voted yet - if you still want to round out the set, I'll be happy to provide the number two, just for fun. If you got it, then I'll give the much higher vote that the picture deserves.
This photo really is intriquing to me. The perspective of the gear placement and trail rope vs. lead rope seems very cool.
Yeah - Gunks on the front page! I haven't yet been on CCK - definitely it is on my short list for next season.
Now, when some ice fisherman comes along and sees those bollards, they're gonna be scratching their heads!
That looks like F.U.N! Grovel-ly good times.....
Very intriguing shot, Climbsomething!
I think this is my favorite of all your photos I've seen. The colors and the gracefulness of the climber make it very appealing.
I don't care for the url being imbedded into the photograph. I saw the piture on the front page, and wondered if it wan't a dike within the rock formation. Actually clicked to get a better view, for that reason!
I suppose, if the issue is that of people copying the photo, you've got to do something, but perhaps a better suggestion would be to ask the site to format so that people cannot simply copy one's work.
Shaggette - Your submitted pictures always catch my eye. Looks like you might qualify for grand prize in the "one having the most fun" sweepstakes! Thanks for sharing the wealth....
It DOES sort of look like a bouldering shot at first glance....hahahah..... Looks very fun, at any rate!
A very nice catch! If this is shot is a good indication of your eye for the moment, I hope you'll be posting more of your work. The cloud gives me an impression of a rainbow. Really - very nice.
Ohhh....Now I see - the little wobble marks should have been a giveaway! Thanks for letting me know.
Yay for you! Watching you focus and power through the crux on Directissima was awesome, Ha. Way to style it! So great that guy was able to get shots of us on HighE.
Really like! Must be incredible to be that remote and putting your feet on untouched ground(well, I know... but the snow is untouched, and somehow I don't think it's the same as going out and making fresh tracks on my front lawn!)
Very beautiful image!
Is that on the fabled WOS route?
I agree - great shot! Has it all - crisp and colorful, composition, perspective on exposure.
Yes, a great picture for the site... I've posted to my (ClimbAddict) PInterest page. Should gain some exposure for the photo!
What a fun-looking climb!
