One of my photos is being used on the cover of the new 4th Edition of Wilderness & Travel Medicine Pocket Guide, which was just published by The Mountaineers Books.

A longtime client of mine, The Mountaineers Books also used this image of Eric Parsons approaching the crater rim on 18,400′ El Pico de Orizaba for the cover their 2003 Mountaineering Wall Calendar.

Aside from being one of my favorite photos, over the years it’s become my most successful selling stock image of all time. I shot it on Velvia with a Nikon N90s and a 105mm f/2.5 manual focus lens.

  • That really is a great shot – no wonder it’s been your best seller. BTW – that wouldn’t be the same 105 lens that you got on our Nepal trip back in ”93 would it?
