Today’s Photo Of The Day is “The Ridgeline” by David Connel. Location: Bugaboo Provincial Park, British Columbia.

“My climbing buddy and I climbed Pigeon Spire in Bugaboo Provencial Park in British Columbia, Canada,” explains Connel. “I debated about bringing my DSLR camera, not wanting to haul the extra weight up the peak. Since I did bring the camera with me, I spent the whole climb looking for that iconic ridgeline-climbing image. When we reached the ridgeline, I knew immediately that this was the image I needed to capture. I let my climbing partner get ahead of me on the ridgeline so that he’d dramatically stand out against the spire face. I’m so glad that I carried the extra weight.”

Exposure: 1/400 sec., f/10, ISO 250
