Matt, your images are spectacular. I‘ve seen this TR before and have really enjoyed the photos.

Unfortunately, the website you are using does not do your work justice. Pop-up ads come up (even with blocker,) the photos are difficult to enlarge, etc.

I know it would probably be difficult to format it for the 14ers website, so I don‘t have a suggestion...

But what an incredible trip! I‘d really like to get together some time and learn some of your photography ”secrets” ... assuming you‘re willing to share!

Some of the nicest images around; keep up the good work!


Amazing photos Matt!

Really nice work. It looks like your camera is shooting 20 megapixel pictures!

I‘m also here in the Springs. We should link up and head out together for a peak sometime.

Dances and glob - thanks for the kind words. I‘m sorry your experience on Examiner is not the best. The reason I place my Trip Reports there is because I actually get paid a little money to do it. I use that money to supplement my climbing gear Thanks for reading.

Glob - definately - I have pretty much all of my climbs planned for 2010, the list is pretty scary - I can send it if you‘re interested.
