South Peak (again)
Sorry if you have a slow browser. This is the only way I could get a sense of scale in the picture.
Update: I’ve linked it. If you want to see a larger size, click on the picture.
This is obviously a composite picture. it is also a stitch of three frames. for every frame i took several pictures of their progress, then overlaid the pics and punched a hole through using photoshop masks. It was actually a tough scramble when altitude (3800M+), tiredness (we got up at 4AM after a fitful sleep), remoteness (had we slipped and cracked something we were several hours from Paiyun) and all other excuses aside, it was pretty steep. I think you can see it in their expressions. At the top we were quite jolly, but we just wanted to get down this stretch safely. I kept trying to get Richard to pose for me, but he would hug the wall, making it look less steep than it was. There is a different version (just a straight three photo stitch) down below the wildflower post.
