Hey I really like this, the silhouette works well against that really crisp background - good idea and a nice capture!

Given your height off the ground, I'd say approximately 12,003ft. Wink

This is very well taken, with the strong silhouette against the vivid sky. My only niggle is that the pose is, to me, more suggestive of jumping than falling, which is more a criticism of the title than the photograph itself, which I think is excellent.

Congratulations for reaching the summit! I'm impressed that you had the energy to lark about at 12,000ft. My experience of that altitude was that walking a hundred yards felt like jogging half a mile. I guess that's the benefit of acclimatization — we were in the Rocky Mountain National Park, which has a very cool road over a 12,000ft pass. Wondeful place.
