Prusik Peak from Leprechaun lake, USA.

Title: Prusik Peak from Leprechaun lake, USA.
Photo was taken one evening in October of 2005 during a five day climbing trip into the enchantments.
The larches had just turned color, and we had five days of perfect weather.
The "classic" view of Prusik is from a bit higher up at Gnome Tarn.
This view does not highlight Prusik as much, but places it in the surrounding environment better.
I think it gives a good feel for the true beauty of the area.
OM-4t Zuiko 21 f/3.5 Kodak Elite Chrome. Slide Scanned with Minolta Dimage Dual Scan III scanner.
Exposure data not recorded, but I would guess f/11 or f/16. I did a small amount of dust retouching
and cropped to 8x10 in Elements, otherwise no computer manipulation.
