It’s all about perspective. In this case, the perspective from photographer Colin Bartholomew’s perch high above the rest of the world is pretty good. Safely anchored in and belaying up his partner, Colin snapped this shot of the business end of winter climbing. People have been mountaineering for hundereds of years, but the invention of modern crampons changed the game. Allowing for safe travel on steep ice and snow slopes, crampons were so radical they were considered cheating among gentlemen climbers of the time. Nobody’s complaining these days!
