National Geographic 2012 Photo Contest Editors' Favorite
Lens: DA 55-300 Camera: Pentax K-7 Photo Location: Chamonix-Mont Blanc 
Posted By: Heie, 12-08-2012, 09:45 AM

A couple months ago I came across a thread here started by forum member Hegemon, in which he asked if any of the images in the Nat Geo contest could have been taken with a Pentax. Because the window for submission was still open, I decided to roll the dice and enter four images that I was extremely proud of. One of those photos I discovered as being one of the Editor's Favorites out of over 22,000 (!) entries.

That photo is:



The link to the photo at the NatGeo site is here.

If anyone is curious, here are the four images that I submitted initially.

Thanks for looking...man am I excited

It's an awesome image, Alex! Didn't need an editor to tell us that you have talent.

Congratulation, heie for being featured. The man on the extreme right corner puts the image in perspective. Where were you when you shot this image,? another mountain top?
