    This is one intense portrait! I love Humberto's comment below, "The beautiful setting with the mountains and soft clouds in the background are in tension with the rough rock, the intense focus and physical effort of the climber. Great shot" and that Brian Skerry mentioned the awesome layers that allow the eye to discover new aspects. I have such a great sense of who Lynn is through this awesome moment!
