Cirque de Gavarnie - French Pyrenees by Alexandre Vaz

This image was made during a three day hike in the western Pyrenees in Gavarnie valley last June. I was with a friend and we were carrying just a little over 20 pounds (10kg) each, including sleeping bags, mattresses, tent, water and food, so I was only carrying my camera EOS 30D and the 16-35L. This image of my friend was taken hand held just as we climbed over the clouds.
