In a special moment that will last for eternity for me is captured here. The day following the successful summit of Island Peak I felt truely amazing – I had pushed, endured and achieved more than I had really felt possible. Walking back down the Imja Drengka valley from Island Peak I was talking to my fellow trekkers and said “…as much as I feel absolutely amazing and am on the biggest natural high, there’s one other thing that I’ve been looking for and haven’t seen yet… a massive ice avalanche!” And literally, (no really) as I spoke the work ‘avalanche’, we heard a thunderous roar and turned to see this. The length of this avalanche from top to bottom as seen here would be more than a 1000m, down the face of the Nuptse-Lhotse Wall, which gave me enough time to shoot a couple of photos. A friend exclaimed that God was listening to me, I must agree.
