In my short career as an amateur photographer I learned that one of the most important aspects of getting a stunnign result is not necessarily the equipment and know-how but certainly the patience. With this shot and your story around it you demonstrate that virtue of patience. You're right, waiting out there against all odds is not everyones cup of tea, but you were gifted by the gods of photography for your virtue of waiting ... I don't know how many hours I already spent at the exact place and went absolutely dry (literally) ;-)
The picture shows a high level of grain with low shutter speed and relative low shutter aperture. I wonder what was the sensitivity set., huh? Wonderful!
Welcome to TE!!!

Hahaha... i think that that may be one of the most opinionated reviews i've received yet for this one.

It looks like this picture was fairly successful here... shows you what i know about photography :-)

How has your photography been treating you lately--i remember hearing that you were kind of in a slump. i've tried to dig myself out of mine by taking anything i find the opportunity to, but i'm still on a little bit of a post-Peru hangover, i think. Hopefully i'll get to do a little bit of climbing over Christmas Break and maybe feel a little bit more inspired.

Have a good one!

Inspiration... Yes, that's what I have been lacking. I have been doing some soul searching lately. What inspires me to take pictures? For you, it started out with climbing. For me, it started out with nature. So I think that if I go back to what originally inspired me to take photos, I'll find my motivation again. I really enjoy looking at all kinds of photos here on trekearth (and some times I wish I could emulate other styles). But as far as my own photography is concerned, I'm inspired when I'm photographing nature, even though I've been trying other forms. I think that’s where the frustration came from; My inability get inspired about other forms of photography (I had the motivation). Hopefully I can get inspired with other forms of photography in the future.

Sorry about the long response. Hopefully the act of writing down my thoughts will be somewhat therapeutic for me ;-)
