In Awe of God’s Creation – Mt. Everest Time Lapse Video – Din varful lui Everest – Coplesit de Creatia lui Dumnezeu

Source: Slate:

Breath-taking! [Haha!] I live at an elevation of 1700 meters, and I’ve been up as high as 3700, where the air is thin enough (about 2/3 pressure as at sea level) that just moving around for some people is difficult. Photographer Elia Saikaly went up to 8000 meters to shoot that video, staying awake into the night while other, more sane climbers, were sleeping. At that height, air pressure is a mere one-third what it is at sea level, and climbers, not surprisingly, call it the “death zone”.

Read Saikaly’s account of his travels to scale Everest. It’s harrowing, and amazing, and wonderful. Climbing such mountains is incredibly dangerous, and some people undertake it foolishly. But the ones who prepare, study, practice, and understand what they are doing: I salute them. The spirit it takes to explore is an astonishing thing, and I’m glad so many possess it.

ROMANIAN: Fotograful a mărturisit că nu i-a fost tocmai uşor să surprindă în sute de imagini magia mamei naturi de la o altitudine de 8000 de metri. „A fost absurd de greu să realizez aceste fotografii. Să nu dormi şi să urci pe Everest este o combinaţie periculoasă”, recunoaşte Saikaly. (Descopera.ro)
