Time for an update to my Deviant ID.

I didn't realise until later that I look like a school boy in this photo, the backwards hat, the grey shorts, pulled up socks and black looking walking boots...

This was taken on the very recent Pine Valley / Labyrinth Walk on Day 2. We are getting close to the summit of Mt Geryon North, shown in the background. This the third hardest peak in Tasmania according to the peak baggers guide.

Since the actual final climb involved a couple of short stages of "technical climbing", no packs or cameras were taken beyond this point.

In my opinion, having to climb sort of pushes the limits of what you call "bushwalking" really.

This was originally a wide-angle shot, I have cropped it for my Deviant ID. Because it's a wide angle lens, I have applied perspective and volume anamorphosis correction to stop myself looking warped. DXO optics pro is definitely the go for RAW images...

Thanks. These shorts are actually full length pants, the zip off type. It was too hot this day so I zipped the legs off, it therefore saves me carrying an extra pair of shorts...

Mines are the same! I just can't remember the brand at the moment... :D They're quite strong though.

Do you have a tent? Do you climbe a lot or you rather go trekking?

Hi, yes I have a "2 and a half" man tent and also a rather claustrophobic but expensive, one-man Macpac tent. I never really got into climbing but I have certainly tried it. I mostly go trekking or "bushwalking" as they call it here. Our highest mountain in Tasmania is only 1560m. I'm at about 1530m in the photo above, on another mountain. I must say I'm very envious of the big peaks up there in Switzerland, and what a beautiful country it is :)

I've also bought a one-man tent but have used it once only (claustrophobia, true that, plus I'm a girl, every little noise scared the shit out of me!!!), though its's comfortably light-weight (the lighter I could find, less than 1Kg!). The one I prefer is a MHW shelter (pyramid shape).

We definitely have higher peaks here! I've never slept in a tent below 1500m! ;)

:rofl: Dude, in that perspective you look like a giant. I like the colorful lichens on the rocks.

Great ID. I must say I agree, climbing does definitely push the limits of 'bushwalking'. Now I know why I don't do it. Not to mention the fact that I'm terrified of heights as well. :-) Must have been an awesome view.

LOL... a 30 yo school boy! Now that's what I call being kept back a grade or two!
Nice shot though... beautiful scenery, giving me more reasons why I am longing to make the journey to see Tassie one day!
