João Paulo Barbosa captures the ice blue majesty of Chimborazo Mountain (Ecuador) with this spectacular photograph. "Chimborazo is the highest mountain in the 'avenue of volcanoes' in Ecuador. The top of the 6,310 meters can be reached with ice-climbing techniques and equipment," says Barbosa with obvious awe. "One can see the nine Ecuadorian mountains that are over five thousand meters high. This is what the English mountain climber Edward Whimper saw in 1880, when little was known about the effects of thin air in humans. In 2000, glaciologists found evidence of water in its liquid state in the frozen tip of this volcano, thus indicating it can erupt at any moment."
Featuring a white border, the photograph is printed on Crystal Archive Fuji paper.
