Photo: Spiderman, Spiderman; Does whatever a spider can…

Picture: Ninja rock climber on granite, Joshua Tree National Park, California

This is the photo I *was* going to post yesterday, before the point when I realized my weblog was “gone down”, “taking a nap”, “momentarily offline”, “on a break”, “in seclusion”, or any other manner of describing something currently unavailable.

I like this image because it feels a little different. Many of the climbing shots I’ve seen are either taken in high alpine conditions, or in warm weather where the clothing almost seems optional. This image was taken on a very cool and chilly afternoon this last January, and the clothing this climber had on, especially the ‘ninja’-style face mask, and combined with his pose, really makes him look very bug-like.

    Great shot man! Where did you get it? Do you live close to such great places for photography?

    One of the best climbing images I’ve seen in some time. As I think I may have mentioned to you earlier I also thought of a spider when I saw this. The stark shadow and the rope made me think along these lines. The same can be said of a Ninja. Beautiful work as always.
