“A person’s work is nothing but a long journey to recover, through the detours of art, the two or three simple and great images which first gained access to their hearts.” ~Albert Camus

Climbing in Ecuador

I've been spending a lot of time in the Andes and have started playing with climbing photography...makes for a lot of gear, a lot to think about and much to learn!
                                        On the summit of Cotopaxi, 19,348 ft
Rapidly receding glacier, seems you have to walk another 20 minutes to reach ice every few months.

                                Rush hour at the base of Chimborazo
        Baltazar Ushca- the last hielero (iceman)'s granddaughter.
