A big avalanche came off Gasherbrum II, fortunately the main blast didn't get as far as our tracks.
Taken on Kodachrome 25 on an OM1 then scanned.

I love this shot but can't help but feel it may look better all black and white.

I like the weird altitude induced impression that he has three shadows.

Brilliant shot, feels very atmospheric. Can't imagine how it felt being there.
