Description

Including human forms in a landscape image helps tell a story and make the image more relatable to a viewer who may never get a chance to experience such an adventure. During a climb of Nevado Pisco (18,981 ft.) in the Peruvian Andes, these two climbers past me in the dark on the way to a sunrise summit bid. Just after sunrise I saw them pass above these crevasses on the mountain's glacier. The diagonals created by the snow and ice and the scale provided by the climbers helped tell the story of adventure, danger, and beauty. I shot horizontally as well as vertically, as I thought the image would work well in both formats.
