Note that in order to take this image, Philipp had to make this hike which is serious. He took the image with his Ricoh GR, a nice, light camera perfect for a hike like this.
My flickr contact chris schroeer-heiermann who usually is shooting architecture (he’s an architect) took a trip to the Italian Alps (Dolomites) and posted this nice series, taken, as always, with his Canon S95 point and shoot camera. Amazing.
Flickr member curd ranz posted this terrific image of an avalanche taken with his Fuji X-T1 in Oberlech, Austria.
ian mcintosh posted this dramatic landscape image from the mountains of Scotland taken with his Ricoh GR.
Flickr member Sung-Min Kim has posted a spectacular image of Death Valley, California taken with his Ricoh GR.
Flickr member hansol0 took this spectacular image of the Sherpa village Namche on the way to Everest Base Camp with his Sony RX100. This is at extremely high altitude, not all trekkers can even hike this far let alone up to Base Camp. Way to go hansol0.
Flickr member macal1961 has posted a spectacular mountain landscape shot with the Sony RX100. The detail is incredible and he’s caught the light and sky perfectly.
Flickr member Graham Gibson took a great shot of the Swiss Alps and Matterhorn from a mountain observatory. Check out those great cairns.
This is a great idea: a prefab climber/hiker refuge that’s airlifted into place and assembled in a few hours. The Airstream trailer of refuges. I wonder how this idea might translate into low cost housing on level ground?
My only concern is that in the example refuge the front door is a bit too close to the drop off and in icy or snowy conditions one might, uh, have a bad day.
