This one was taken about 15 minutes walk away from the last upload. I was walking back from a refuge at close to 2000m altitude with two friends, when one of my friends stumbled and broke her ankle. I stayed with her while her husband went back to the refuge to get help. Fortunately there were just enough holes in the clouds to send a helicopter through, otherwise it would have taken a team of pompiers (firemen) two hours to get there with a stretcher.
I felt a quandary whether one should take photographs when people are in trouble, so I didn't as long as there was anything I could do, but when the helicopter had arrived and everything was in hand I took a couple of shots, also thinking that when everything was over my friends might like a record of the adventure (they did).
