Rock Climbing Photos : Misc : silence before the storm

At the end of the Emli valley in Aladaglar, a bowl of peaks will surround you. After many years and many visits, this place never ceases to amaze me. On the right, the amazingly beautiful Parmakkaya (aka fingerrock) is visible, which we intended to climb from its classic (easiest) route. The weather seemed pretty bad, yet we continued to our climb, hoping to get a window of climable weather. After three days of rain and wind, we had to turn back. Olive in the picture, is carrying heavy loads of trad gear to our camp.

Tech note: The image(s) are shot with a 19mm lens on tmax400 b&w negative. I stiched 2 images, yet working with 19mm has its problems. I have a hardtime fixing the deformation around the sides of the images to stich seamlessly. I used panorama tools ps plugin to correct the distortion. Next time I should stick to 50mm lens, since they are easier to stich.
