Crescent Moon, Lingtrin, Tibet
Simplicity of form defines Tibet’s Mt. Lingtrin. This photo was taken during a three-month climbing expedition on Mt. Everest’s northeast ridge. As expedition photographer, I documented as much of the surrounding landscape as possible. Although Mt. Lingtrin was a comparatively small peak, it was nevertheless one of my favorite subjects. In this photo the new moon sets behind Lingtrin’s heavily avalanched summit.
