Skiing up to the summit

by Andrea Gasparotto

Normally this steep face is climbed by little people during the winter season. Due to a fortunate combination of a period of high stability of the snow and the presence of a ski-mountaineer meeting, I had the opportunity to take this shot in the 2011 season, showing both the beauty of the mountain and the bravery of the climbers!
Equipment: Nikon D90 + 18-105 VR
Andrea Gasparotto
Mainly a landscape photographer, at an amateur level, I like to take shots during my mountain excursion in the Italian Alps, especially during the winter season when I do ski-mountaineering in beautiful snow-covered peaks and valleys!

Very surreal. Like ants climbing a lunar landscape. Thought provoking and arresting which is what good photography should be.
