Bouldering under a Full Moon with K6 North Face in background
© Jon Griffith, Aug 2013
Route: Charakusa Valley, Pakistan
Climbers: Jon Griffith
Camera used: Canon EOS 5D Mark III
I try and capture something 'new' (for me) on every trip. After spending over an hour looking for the perfect boulder with a K6 backdrop whilst my camera shot a time-lapse, I spent about another 40 mins trying to capture a series of bouldering shots of myself under the full moon. The bouldering at Charakusa Base Camp is definitely the most scenic I've ever done so I felt I had to do it justice.
I love this kind of photography- there are no flash guns, fancy gimmicks, or any photoshop at work here. It's just me, a head torch, and a tripod. It was worth staying up til midnight for....

Amazing photo as usual Jon, personally I prefer it without the moon cropping it out...but, what the f**k do I know !

Nice one Jon, great to see you are still getting away after the Everest nightmare. Where can we see your timelapse?
