For all you readers living in the Netherlands, in this week's Panorama magazine is a 5 page article about my summit on Everest and the dramatic events surrounding it. It is in Dutch so some of you might want to buy it for the pictures only
 ;)


(click for an enlargement).

I wrote the story, though the titles on top of the article and on the cover of the magazine were added afterwards, they are not my style... 
::)

The story is a shortened version of my diaries as they have appeared on this forum, if you have read the magazine and want the full story, please read all these posts.
The magazine is in the stores until the 31st, so get it while you can and let me know what you thought of it here. You can see a picture (small as well as enlarged) of the cover of the magazine and my unedited 1 minute summit movie on their website.

Cheers,
Harry  8)

  • Dream it, envision it and then live it.

It looks like a great article!  Even though I don't read Dutch...I loved the pics.  Well done.  So what's next?  Maybe National Geographic?  The sky is the limit!

Continued success in all your endeavors.

Cheers!

Thanks MC, good to have you back.
Yes, Nat Geo si my next aim, very hard to get in though.

Frans, I always use SLR's (mirror reflex) with interchangeable lenses. Everybody thinks I am crazy, but I keep on lugging the heavy stuff up the mountains   :P

(and yes, I carried these myself, I have never given any lenses or cameras to a sherpa or teammember to carry on Everest, even though Lorenzo insisted when I was feeling bad..)

This was the first time I used digital, I brought the Canon Eos 20D, 8.2mp. Pics on teh summit were taken with a 15-30mm Sigma lens, I also brought a back-up slide body (old Eos 500n) which I actually used up there with a fixed 50mm lens.
I brought a tripod and a pro 70-200L IS lens until ABC.

I had 3 batteries, constantly charged and kept them always in my innerpocket when climbing, to keep them warm.

Summitvideo was shot on a Panasonic NV-200 videocamera, I carried that one as well.

Now Canon, are you not sorry for not sponsoring me  ::)
