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 ;-)

No filter apart from some rime on the lens!

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