January 31, 2012 Climbing a Chandelier



Ice Climbing in Eidfjord, Norway

Will Gadd climbed this 650' frozen waterfall in order to explore the caves behind it. The risk worth it, he says. "The mix of light, atmosphere, and the temporary nature of these jeweled rooms inspires awe."

I love this picture because it looks like the ice is in motion and is going to come down on me in any second.

In another glance, it looks like the whole world is crashing down on me.

Ice climbing is crazy. No thanks. Do not want.

one good reason to root for global warming. JFC on a C. No. Way. Evar.

We need a close-up shot of the climbers' faces seeing all that ice falling off to the right.

I think their view of it was probably obstructed by the ice closer to them. They certainly heard and felt it though.

Ice climbing is very hard work. I once climbed an ice wall on the Glacier des Bossons above Chamonix in the French Alps, and it was extremely tiring. I had to do it in preparation for the following day's hike up the Mer de Glace, so I'd know how to get out if I fell into a crevasse. Fortunately the hike went very well, and the scenery was incredible. We went all the way to the top of the Glacier du Talèfre, and I still have a fist-sized lump of quartz which I found lying on the ice up there. This would have been in about 1985-ish.

This is exactly how they denote action and motion in anime-style illustration.

I've lived longer than I was supposed to twice, no way in hell I'd do that.

Reading with Tiger this week, he insisted it was raining outside in one of the illustrations. They had shaded the window slightly - to show it was a window.

Raining, he insisted. Sunshine! he pointed out cheerfully in the next picture (in the garden).
It wasn't a biggie, so I let it go.

I've often read about frozen waterfalls. This is not what I imagined.
