Yes, but once you've seen one stunning sunset on the Plan, you've seen them all...
Had to give this one minus-six, as you failed to bring out the gold flecks in the climber's rucksack correctly. Jealous, moi? ;-)

Truly inspiring shot. I looked at it and it created a genuine yearning to get out in the hills at the next opportunity. THAT'S art! Thankyou!

I hope he knows he missed the last Telepherique :) but worth it for such an amazing picture!
I'm trying to figure out where exactly it was taken? Is that the 'col du Midi' just in front of the dome?

thanks for the kind comments. The bulge is the small cornice turned mini-serac that always overhangs on the Midi-Plan ridge. the col du midi is behind me to my right...
