Such a "cool" photo, it makes me shiver. The "Where's Waldo" effect emphasises the large powerful mountain, similar to the power of the oceans.

Yep, that's an amazing wall of ice he's climbing. This would make a good motivation poster if you could think of an appropriate slogan.. ;-Þ

This is a real beauty, it must have been quite cold. I took my shot at Bridal Veil Falls in Utah and in the parking lot there was and Ice Climber who had just came down and his face was bloody from a cut he had climbing. It was like 13 degrees out. I don't understand it either. :)

I thought this was a totally amazing shot. With the guy there doing his thing and then all of the hanging ice. I can only imagine that this must be spectacular to see in person. I expected this to win the blue... but congrats on the Red!

Wow this shot is great. I might try and put the guy more towards the corner for dramatic effect. Nice job!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/07/2008 05:02:07 AM
I love the sense of scale. Having the climber makes me know just how large the ice formations are.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/06/2008 08:34:39 PM
beautiful ice, and that dude must be nuts!

Wow he looks so small, he really makes this shot because he adds a really neat element into the composition and emphasizes the magnitude of the wall of ice. very nice!

At first glance I nearly missed the climber. Really shows off the scale with the climber in the shot. Well done.

Cool!!

An amazing scale - not something I'd want to try. Nicely captured.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/03/2008 09:21:40 PM
wow those are big icicles! I'd be afraid of one falling on me :S pretty picture though :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/03/2008 05:37:21 PM
Nice shot. Especially like how the climber provides a reference on the scale of the face.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/03/2008 04:50:28 AM
it seems like a bunch of tiny icicles. until i scrolled down, and saw the person climbing. great photo.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/03/2008 03:35:07 AM
I thought it was an good pic, then I noticed the climber. Without the climber you wouldn't know how big this is. Great shot 8.

Beautiful. Great job of conveying the height and danger.

That is just off the charts. Amazing photo, gives me chills in more ways then one.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/02/2008 08:40:52 PM
This is truly gorgeous ice. I like that you included a human element to show scale and the challenge of the climb. The darkness in the center gives a feeling that the climber has almost reached something. Amazing work! Perfect for the challenge.

01/02/2008 07:33:15 PM
