Sept 30th : #9 is in the bag…

After an age off radar, I’m back on-line to get the blog up to date with what the heck has been going on over the summer monsoon season. Well apart from holidays, new arrivals at Chez Sharples and lots of photo-missions, Climbing 2013 is what’s been going on. Yes folks, calendar #9 is in the bag and away at the designers…

It was all going super smoothly – back in January. One month into the new year and two shots in the can. Feb gave way into March and the sun hit and it was climb o’clock. Trouble was, the weather then took control and things went south – fast! Wet crags, injured climbers – not the stuff of dreams.

Long story short; the pixs for Calendar #9 are now done and TBH I’m getting a good vibe about them too. I’ll have the first proofs early this week, then with a bit of luck the printer proofs the week after then the finished article the week after. Fingers crossed.

So, I guess you wanna see some shots right? Sure; but not just yet. Here’s a mini gallery of action all snapped as I romped the country shooting for the calendar…
