Bruce Miller belayed by Kevin Cooper on Mt. Meeker. This may have been the worst conditions I have ever shot in. Most of the other images from this day are noting but white. The spindrift was so heavy that breathing was an issue. I actually offered to throw down a rope because I was so concerned for the climbers, something I have only done a couple of times in my career.
This image is the first in my portfolio from "The Park", which I am directing a film about and planning a book for. It is the story of winter climbing in Rocky Mountain National Park and has thus far been a 4 year project. It will also appear as its own story on this site in the near future.
