Sports Photo Competition 2013 No 2 : Entry Number 98

Judges Comment

Nice composition, use of scale for dramatic effect, can't really fault this image, works well for this event. Maybe a more panoramic crop taking out the sky above the sunstar might make it even more dramatic?

Photographers Comment

Thank you so much for the remarks. This photo was taken in the early morning on a summit attempt of Mt. Shasta. I love the way the sun illuminates the atmosphere below. It gives a sense of of the struggle these mountaineers are going through. My name is Seth Dunn, I am an passionate photographer and architectural designer. While this photo was taken with my iPhone due to weight limitations, I shoot film on a 1979 Canon F-1 and digital with my Nikon D90. Please check out my website!
