  1. Well, I can definitely say that there was more snow in ’78 than there was when I saw and climbed this back in 2007. An obvious and significant shrinkage of the snowcap. Evidence of climate change most certainly. I love this image too – eerie, cloud wreathed and that extraordinary semi-symmetrical bulk. What a mountain!


    • That’s interesting, Andy. I can remember the very small and retreating glaciers on Mt Kenya from sometime around 1978 too – maybe none of these snowcaps will last. Well, I’m a geologist – and things come and things go! Glad you like the shot – thank you. Adrian


  2. Stunning… and so perfect.
    Wonderful composition and tones… there’s a silent feeling in this one and I can only imagine the feeling you must have had in you…

    Enjoy your weekend, my friend. Hugs from Sweden.


This blog has two pleasures for me - creating the images and hearing from you - so get your thoughts out to the world!
