Leaving Bivouac Citta di Luino at sunrise

Bivouac Citta di Luino lays at the border between Mattmark (Saas Fee, Switzerland) and Macugnaga (Italy). It is very tiny, remote (for Switzerland…) and mostly unknown.
We got there in the fog and left the next morning to climb the South Face of Strahlhorn (4190 m) before going back to Mattmark.

Himalayan Refuge

Description: Self portrait of my tent at Camp 1 (5700m) on the South West Ridge of Ama Dablam (6812m). Khumbu Region, Nepal.

Judge’s Comments: This image caught the judges attention fairly quickly – it’s a striking images even before diving into the details. The complementary colour contrast between the blue of dawn/dusk and the orange tent is superb. The exposure is expertly matched for both the ambient and artificial light and a natural composition leads the viewer’s eye from the huge mountains into the micro-world of the tent interior. Great to see a touch of foreground which really  adds depth to the image. The judges noted it had a very ‘commercial’ aspect to it – ie, it could easily be seen in print advertising for a big outdoor brand, or a double page spread in a magazine. It’s worthy winner of the category and the grand prize for this years competition. (Dean Mackenzie & Simon Williamson)
