Accessing the plateau is a challenge even for experienced mountain climbers – especially when there’s snow and ice. There are no sealed roads and no chairlift. Though I knew the route well from going there numerous times in summer, it took me quite a few hours to climb it in January. With the cold and extreme wind at the time, changing lenses was out of the question; but I was able to capture a couple of lovely pictures before it got too cold. Despite the adversity it was a great experience: I felt like I was in a very special place, a smaller version of the Antarctic.”
