I submitted the above picture to the 'A Life Ascending' Facebook page and they've kindly chosen it as their Photo of the Day on 02 March 2012.

From 'A Life Ascending's website;

"A Life Ascending chronicles the life of acclaimed ski mountaineer and mountain guide Ruedi Beglinger. Living with his wife and two young daughters on a remote glacier in the Selkirk Mountains of British Columbia, Beglinger has built a reputation as one of the top mountaineering guides in the world.

The film follows his family's unique life in the mountains and their journey in the years following a massive avalanche that killed seven people. Documenting the sublime beauty and ever-present risk of a life lived on the edge, the film ultimately explores the power of nature as both an unforgiving host and profound teacher."

They've said they'll send me a 'prize pack' for being photo of the day, which is nice. If it includes a copy of the film, I'll write a review of it here.

The picture was taken as my friend, Alex Haken, and I walked along the top of the cliffs of Stob Coire nan Lochan in Glencoe after climbing Dorsal Arete. In the middle distance is the Aonach Eagach ('Notched Ridge'). Behind the Aonach Eagach are some of the ten Munros that make up the Mamores, and behind them, just at top-left, is Ben Nevis, Britain's highest mountain*.

(*I'll be on Ben Nevis soon as it's the first hill a friend and I have planned for a forthcoming backpacking trip that will take us up and over Ben Nevis, Carn Dearg, Aonach Mor, Aonach Beag and all the Grey Corries - also known as the 'Lochaber traverse'. Pictures and story to follow!)
