Default "River Deep, Mountain High"

I'm back here after a while.

A friends training hike for the next day's climb.
It was from my last expedition back in 2007. A 3030m. high (just above to be accepted as mountain) mountain near mediterranean coast.

The summit is far behind the rocks you see in front.

Bahadir, upon your request, below there are two photos from the summit. One is taken by me (You'll recognize Hafize) The next one is including me in the frame, therefore a shot of someone else's.

To tell the truth, I have no idea about Flickr.


On the other hand my friend, I thought you would not miss recognizing the lyrics on the title.

I am hugely entertained by this, as someone whose highest unaided (no railways) peak was just 3000m (though I have been to higher Alpine huts without climbing the mountain due to bad weather).

But not as entertained as you would have been to read the British national news headlines recently on seeing this news item about a promoted British 'mountain'. Here anything rising over 2000 British Imperial feet (609m) is deemed to be a mountain! See...

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstopics/politics/wales/2987113/Walkers-turn-Snowdonia-hill-into-a-mountain.html

Its view would be very similar to this (below); not quite so impressive!

Great pictures that take me back to my more athletic (younger) mountaineering days!

We have a whole feature film about these trivial height issues!...

Both really entertained me a lot.
Also gives me hope for the future as there are still some people who has power and will to deal with such issues, whose main problem is to check the heights and describe them as hills or mountains. Wish I had only such concerns.

It's peaceful, yet desolate. Maybe that's why it is peaceful, seems that nothing will be able to reach there to bother you.

I remember some of your old camping pictures with your family (was somewhere in Scandinavia ?).
But hey, don't discourage yourself, all you need to climb, is some 600 meters to continue mountaineering. Lucky being in UK.

Thank you Alan for making my day end with fun and also thanks for your research and appreciation to the pictures.

emre.

Thank you my friend! So that, I could, at least, toast for the old days : )Oh, I can feel it on my face, I can even smell it...the summit!
Yea, I recognized Hafize and yourself of course! But, is that guy on the lefthandside an 'outstretched' İlker??

Btw, Flicky is very cool photo hosting and sharing website by Yahoo, where you can see photostreams of other photographers and also join verious groups! Just start your account and see for yourself. Highly recommended ; )

Hi Emre and welcome back

Lovely first photo... the foot steps / prints in the snow are very clear and the steps are very steady! Well done.

The sky colour and exposure is spot on (also for the "peak" photos). I know from experience, snow and bright sunlight are not easy to get "right".

It's also good reading all the other posts - including the reflections of Alan and Bahadir.

cheers

Paul
