[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A cloud-shrouded Kibo, seen from Barranco Camp. Kibo is the highest of the 3 peaks on Kilimanjaro. It stands 19,340 ft. (5895 m.) and is the peak one climbs when they climb Kilimanjaro. The route we did spends 7 days/6 nights on the mountain and we summit the 6th morning. Barranco was the 3rd camp.

Nice documentary photography, technically solid. This seems to be a busy area. Did you have any difficulties sleeping at that altitude?

Excellent David - the sense of scale in this photo is great.. Nice blue sky at that altitude too.

How did you keep the batteries and camera warm enough?

HI David..great shot...wonderful composition with great details...nice work.


Another great shot for the outdoor magazine david, i like the DOF and sharp foreground and the strong contrast between the mountains and sky etc. Nice piece of work!
