Ice Climbing | Photograph by Mathis Dumas (@mathis_dumas)
“Jeff Mercier climbs inside an ephemeral cave of the Mer de Glace,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Mathis Dumas. “An amazing experience, really steep climbing, and unreal difficulty.” Mer de Glace is a glacier valley located in the French Alps, and is the longest and largest glacier in France.
“The shape of this moulin is delightful. What a perfect location for a little adventure. I love how you have composed and structured your photograph Jeff. Most of the time, I’ve found when looking up at a climber, they can look a bit uninspiring and even offensive. Not here! This is great frame. The posture of your climber is excellent. Really cool. Very dynamic. Great frame and superb choice for this assignment: “Wow! What an Adventure!” — @natgeo photographer Robbie Shone (@shonephoto)
