This says it all: an epic journey! Love it and it's easily a 5. More like this, please!

Thanks. We tried hard and made it to the bottom of the route but it caught the gale badly and so we decided to go back.

Fantastic Henning, would give this a 10 if I could!

Brilliant photo ! The full winter experience captured in one shot - reminds me a bit of the Venables Everest picture - but colder ;-)

Classic example of how to use the "Antarctic fluff filter". 5*

No filter apart from some rime on the lens!

Buy Nikon! The D300 has survived harsh conditions a couple of times.
