I found your site when I was browsing by keywords after again looking at the work of Ansel Adams, whom I greatly admire. I was knocked out by the clarity and definition in your work. I always tended to think that landscape works better in monochrome but you have changed my mind. As a student, I used to use large format for landscape, an old MPP 5x4 with a 90mm Rodenstock, it had appalling fall off on the edges and chronic vignetting but providing I composed the image with this in mind, the results were quite acceptable! Later, I used a Sinar Technical with a full lens range, a bit unweildy for the great outdoors!

Surely this artist has to rank on the top of the ladder.I have enjoyed his asian works for a long time.His work on NP in USA has seen him reach greater heights(how can this be when he is already as high as one can go.Thank you for sharing your great and I mean great talent and gift

WOW ! I know I'm from England, am sorry to start in American, but I just wanted to say how superb your pictures are and could'nt think of a better word to describe them except also .. fabulous composition, breathtaking colours and definition, refreshing to the eyes and enlightening to the spirit. I've seen many other Landscape photography sites on the Internet, but nothing in the same league as these ! Definitely beyond Photography to a classic 'art form' ! Thank you again for these lovely images. With Best wishes and regards : Honey ( Yes, I'm afraid that's my name ! ) Halliday

I was wondering, what do you guys mean by "edition" in the ordering prints section? There is no explanation for this. Thank you.

Hellevoetsluis, Netherlands - Mon, Aug 08, 05 at 13:06:24

I found this site while looking for some pictures of the nearby scenery of Redwoods and Fern County here in Humboldt. I was amazed to find Luong's website. The images are beautiful and I can tell he is a generous man by the way he puts them on his website. Clearly he is someone who appreciates the beauty of Earth and life and sees that sharing such beauty is more important beyond anything else. In this way he is a true artist and a real pioneer of photography. At every opportunity I get I show off his website, after all I'm also showing off the place I am fortunate enough to live too!

I plan my travels too, but I am sure you have very smart tips and experience planning. I respect your valuable time. I don't like to occupy your time, but I am seriously crazy about doing what you do now. I feel like I have just fall into great love of your work, and God's creation. Please guide me.

Asim Sana Naik. Lahore, Punjab Pakistan - Tue, Jul 26, 05 at 00:26:21

I want to thank you for making these galleries available to everyone. Your photographs show how amazing and breathtaking creation is. They display God's power, and show how meager we are in comparison. Because of this, your work is both humbling and awe-inspiring. I am truly appreciative for allowing me to view your work.

Your work is by far the most stunning I have seen in years. To travel through your pages was to see, feel, and experience so many places I have never been to. Thank you, for such awesome work, your talent, and visions.

Merced, CA USA - Wed, Jul 13, 05 at 07:12:03

Hi , Some great images on your site, but I think you should work a bit on your image captions. “Women hikers consulting a map” … - duh captain obvious. Everyone can see that the people in the image are women looking at the map, or “ camper eating noodles out of the pot” – again if an image is in Alaskan backcountry that shows a person eating noodles while holding a pot, please don’t write caption that is just useless. Instead, give persons name, location and perhaps some other info not seen in the image – and that ‘s it!
toronto, canada - Mon, Jul 11, 05 at 14:23:24
Tuan's answer: Image descriptions are for search engines. However, note that the location is always given in the caption as well.

Your work is amazing!

Are you aware that New Zealand is part of Oceania. You should come down here to "Downunder" and experience part of the "real" world instead of "bullshit" Australia and the wank yanks
Stray Bob. New Zealand - Sat, Jul 09, 05 at 01:28:25
Tuan's answer: Definitively on my travel list

Found your site by accident and have spent a lot of time looking at all your beautiful pictures. Love it and have sent links to my email friends & family. Keep up the great work. I will return to check for new pix. I love taking pix and so I am looking for all the ideas I can get to take better ones. You have helped and appreciate it. Beauty is truly in the eye of the beholder and your pix are beautiful. I just take them for my own pleasure.

I stumbled across this site one day, and love the pictures. I really enjoy seeing all the different places around the world. I frequently check for updated pictures, and recommend the site to everyone I know. Since I am a Texas native, I was curious why there are no pictures of this state. The hill country can be beautiful in the spring. Thanks again for the wonderful site. Amy Plano, Texas

I came across this site while searching for rock climbing info. and I was blown away by all your adventures, climbings and photography. As a newbie in rock climbing and photography enthusiast, your site is truly outstanding, I just hope I'll be able to see and experience half as much.
M. Tuan Tran. san diego, CA US - Wed, Jun 15, 05 at 14:48:41

If goes without saying that by the time one has grown to adulthood, one has been exposed to hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of photographic images (e.g., card stores, postcard racks, etc.) But I was very nearly moved to tears at the beauty of your photography, Mr. Luong. Especially those images of San Francisco made this viewer so very homesick for the place I grew up. From those images to the vast number of others, I am truly shocked. I expected that I would quickly become inured, but each new page of plates continued to amaze me. I am really mystified that such standard staples of photography could be so freshly and so strikingly realized--I'm in my mid-forties, have traveled a fair amount, so I wouldn't have believed it possible if I hadn't seen the images myself. Superlatives hardly seem adequate, but you have this stranger's deep respect and admiration.
Christian Hart. Los Angeles, CA USA - Wed, Jun 15, 05 at 13:28:50

Q.T. Luong, I want to say i really dig your photos, I looked at the Avenue of the Giants and it brought back pleasant memories of when my girlfriend and I were through there in 2000, what a nice time we had, also Yosemite we enjoyed being there. That sure is cool that you have the opportunity to go to all these great places, I wish you the best and keep on rockin', Roy Dobbs

Teresa Toten. West, MS USA - Mon, Jun 06, 05 at 10:37:14

Hi, your page is wonderfull but I have a coment, your picture ID#mexi32161 has the wrong description, the author is not Bustamente, the right author is Fernando Baños and the name of the esculpture is "Los Milenios" and it is a homenage to creation. I would like you to change the information please. Thank you, Luis Felipe Carbajal
Luis Felipe Carbajal. Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco Mexico - Fri, May 20, 05 at 16:27:48
Tuan's answer: Thanks for the correction. I have changed the caption. QT

Your website is outstanding and your photography is some of the best I've ever seen. I especially liked your photos of Alaska and linked them to my story on the web titled "A Tale of Two Airplanes". Thank You, King Hawes www.6srw.com
King Hawes. Omaha, NE USA - Fri, May 20, 05 at 02:44:49

Great photos u have there. I''ll coming to USA in July to visit your incredible parks. I am amateur photographer and I have a web site dedicated to my photograpy (www.drejhi.com). I can't comapare with you but I try to be better and better. I only own Canon EOS 300D and 17-40/4L. But during my visit at your conutry i'll buy 70-200 f2.8. I always wanted that lens and now i''ll finaly have it. I wish u more amazing photos. Bye, Andrej Slovenia
Sostanj, Slovenia (Europe) - Tue, May 17, 05 at 03:41:57

Your photographs are absolutely amazing, and I am very impressed with your coverage of so many different places. I just wanted to make one comment related to the incorrect labeling of one of your photographs in the Yellowstone section. In yell0537, based on the white rump patch and the shape of the head, I am almost positive that the two animals in the photograph are female elk. My undergraduate degree is in Wildlife and Fisheries Ecology, so I think that my eye is pretty good for identifying characteristics of wildlife. That does not change my impression of your work, but as a high school Earth Science teacher, I am always appreciative of students who both appreciate the work that I have done, while bringing to my attention, in an appropriate way, mistakes that I have made in my presentations. Their bringing my attention to those errors only serves to make the presentations, minus the errors, better. Thank you for sharing your work with us. Best Regards, David Boutwell Haymarket, Virginia

Mr.Tuan, first of all thank you for providing such "Beauty" that you have captured with your photographic talent. I must admit i am a bit jealous of the places you have seen, but more than jealous, i am happy that you were there and have provided glimpses of time standing still and perserved in the splendor of a unique photographer's eye. I have gazed in awe at most of your works and still look for more. May you have continued sucess and keep an eye out for that next shot... robert s breaux louisiana USA

Hi, can anyone tell me what the "f" in f-stop stands for...? Thanks, Frank Dispensa
Frank Dispensa. - Sat, Apr 23, 05 at 14:41:34

Tuan's answer: f stands for "focal", as the f-number expresses the diameter of the diaphragm aperture in terms of the effective focal length of the lens. QT

lovely. just lovely. my third novel visits china... and having seen your photos, i want to extend my characters' trip to the stone forest. thank you for sharing.

A truly inspiring effort, Tuan. Do keep up the good work. Photography is the only PAUSE button we have in Nature. It freezes a moment in time, in the midst of a fleet-footed world. You have been fortunate to have travelled so wide, and blessed to FREEZE the RIGHT moments. It is so well manifested in your brillant work that words cannot applaud enough. Thank you for the glimpses into the wonderous sights that natures imperfections bring forth. Keep it up and God-Bless.
sreeshant. - Sun, Apr 10, 05 at 08:03:27

In reference to an image I found on the site (Photo ID# aust2558) I was appalled to see some idiot diver stabilising himself by resting his fins on the coral. Its cretins like him who give divers a bad name and destroy reefs all over the world with their reckless actions. The photographer is also a cretin for happily allowing the damage to a reef for the sake of a mediocre photograph. Learn to control your buoyancy and stay off the reefs! Ian UK.
Ian Jakeway. Cheltenham, UK - Sat, Apr 09, 05 at 12:05:58

Tuan's answer: Thanks for your concern. The "idiot diver" was the divemaster for this expedition. The photographer (a beginning scuba diver at that time) simply assumed that his divemaster knew what he was doing, and just took a picture of an event he had no role in scheduling.

The photographs are just amazing..enjoyed all the snaps... Do vist INDIA..there are many places which u'r eye can capture....especially Himalayas ..

Dear Mr. Quan-Tuan Luong, Your images are amazing. Discovering your link was merely accidental, but since then I am hooked and I have told many others of your web site. You are so fortunate to travel the world and have the greatest skills to take these exceptional photographs. I enjoy the pictures from Viet Nam and I can't hardly wait to go back some day. Now living from Washington, I also appreciate those photographs on Mt Rainier, Olympic National Park, and Seattle. I am making an effort to visit your web site on a regular basis, as I am also interested in becoming a better photographer. MyPhuong

I would love to share some of my pictures to you, but I know yours are much better. I'm only 17, and I haven't been taking pictures very long...but people seem to love my sunset ones. I would love to learn and share with you what you have shared with me. also another picture of mine. http://picture.com/display.asp?ID=1645219

I've scoured the internet in search of beautiful scenic pictures to be displayed on my PC, and to share with friends & realative. I'm a novice photographer, with a small collection of my own. Then I stumbled across Terragalleria.com and I'm truely impressed at the pride and craftmanship that Mr. Luong has taken in his photography collection. Great works of nature, landscape & wildlife. Keep up the good work...it is well appreciated.

This site is amazing. I, like others, stumbled onto it and now regularly visit it just to remind myself that a beautiful world lies out there. I am not much of an art afficionado, but these photographs move me! Thank you for sharing your experiences and art with all of us. It is much appreciated!!

Tuan, I'd like to thank you very much for sharing those valuable photos of our beloved country. I went thru a few photos and noticed that the photo ID#Viet7840 was probably miss-labeled. Should it be 'Bamboo shoots' in place of 'sugarcane'? And I wonder if you would consider adding to each photo the time, month, and year it was taken. Someone like me would like to be able to enjoy the view at about same time of the year for the quality shown in those photos. Regards, DTLT

I really enjoyed your photo work. I have been visiting your site as an escape from my work and seek for inspiration. Hoping the beauty of nature that you have captured can spark some ideas and also relax my mind. Keep up the great work. I am definitely sharing this site to all my fellow designers.

Dear Q.T. L. I discovered your site when looking for photos of Gamla Stan. I am heading tillbacka till Sverige in July, August and September. I went through all your shots and rated them with much delight. It was a big ego trip, I must confess, becasue your photographic style is so similar to my own. You have a strong romantic streak in the context of the picturesque and sublime. I am a geographer ( degrees from NZ and Melbourne) and my research area is exploration in Australia dn NZ. Landscape perception. I have also been a free-lance photographer for the last 28 years, mainly doing weddings and portraiture but landscapes and nature for pleasure and spiritual input. I am now labelling my collection and hoping to enter the stock market. I want to share my work with others too, for spiritual output! I am sure you know the work of Australian Ken Duncan. I admire his worldview through the lens and mentaly. It is great to view you work. I am inspired. Blessings, Barbara

Kurt Surette. Rio Linda, Ca. USA - Sat, Jan 22, 05 at 07:52:30

First, thanks for sharing your experiences with us. So,I'd just like to have somethings to say about the names of someplaces if you don't mind. I was born in VietNam, went to some cities before coming here. You translated some places'names, that's very nice, but it's also wrong,because you can't translate the name of cities of places to English. Nobody understands or recognizes it. For example, in Danang, there's a mountain names Maple Mountain, I'm sorry I don't what place it is, and if someone (not Vietnamese) mentions Maple Mountain in Danang with a Vietnamese, I'm sure nobody knows where and what it is (how many Maple Mountains located in Danang, and Vietnam). I hope you don't mind, but you can't translate names. Someone told me about the words: Tay Ba Loi A in Vietnamese before, I had no idea what it was until they said it's Argentina. Just share some ideas. Thanks.
irvine, ca usa - Fri, Jan 21, 05 at 15:53:42

Your images are truly amazing; few can compare to your collection here. As an adventure/wildlife filmmaker I must say: your work is a reminder of what we live for to those of us that do what we do.

I just browsed through the Vietnam section of the site and the pictures are outstanding! I'm planning on backpacking through northern Vietnam and some of the central coast, as well as some of the south. You're pictures are many things; inspiring, beautiful etc. Thank you for giving me something that gets me psyched and excited for my trip. Great work, keep it up.

Peggy. Snohomish, wa usa - Fri, Dec 31, 04 at 08:27:36

I recently ran across your website, and have found very much enjoyment in being able to revisit many places through your photos. My wife and I have visited many of the places in Europe and the US, and as residents of Arizona have been thrilled to see the attention you have given to our state. As a Vietnam veteran I was amazed at the number of places I recognized, even though I last saw that beautiful country over 35 years ago. You have done a fabulous job of photography. Rome, Florence, Venice, and Paris seem more beautiful in your photos, than I remember them on visits over the last few years. My thanks for your time and effort in putting all of this together.

Thai Huynh. Broadmeadows, VIC Australia - Fri, Dec 17, 04 at 14:30:24

These photographs are so captivating that you can easily eat up hours of your precious time trying to take them all in! I couldn't find attractive pics of my area, San Jose California, until I found QT Luong's work. I have to say that these photos may even be a little flattering to my humble city! If I had never been to San Jose and got to know the city thru these photographs, I might think it the most beautiful place on earth!

This has to be one of the most amazing collections of photography I have ever seen. I try to think of all the stories you could tell to accompany these photos. I'm left with the wish that someday I will have opportunity to see half as many of the places which your site encompasses. Let me know if you are ever in write a book. Stop by if you are ever near Austin, Texas. Thanks for sharing.-Dan

Torrance, CA - Sat, Dec 11, 04 at 08:39:00

These are mdiocre pictures at best. While I did not survey the whole gallery I noticed a weakness in the use of light. Most the the images were shot during the 10 to 4pm period and did not take advantage of more dramatic light which happens early and late in the date and before surise. Before you do the book you should have some solid drop dead images which make use of great natural lighting. I also think if you want viewers to rate you images that's fine but I'd be much more interested in a book that is about your tastes and yours vision Jonathan Wilson The Philadelphia Inquirer
Jonathan Wilson
Philadelphia, PA USA - Sat, Dec 11, 04 at 07:48:17

Tuan's answer: I of course respect your opinion regarding the images, however I am not sure your assessment that "most of the images were shot during the 10 to 4pm period" is correct. Besides, do you realize that (a) some subjects just look better at mid-day, contrarily to "amateur photographer wisdom" that one should avoid those times of the day ? (b) In winter, 4pm is very close to sunset in some parts of the world ?

Beautiful Work ... Not much else to express. Thanks, Kim

As a long time photographer, but only a recent world traveler, I was seeking information of visiting Vietnam and to photograph their beautiful country. Your site has given me such a profound inspriation to fulfill my dream of looking at VN through the lens. Your work is incredibly artistic and encouraging to those of us that seek to broaden our horizons in this fine art of photography. Many thanks for your contribution to the world of shutterbugs.

Norman, OK US - Sat, Nov 20, 04 at 13:46:25

I believe the best photography should be judged as art, independently, rather than as denotation of fact. But the photography of nature leads me, who love the Earth as well as the human mind, to seek a connotative power in the photograph of the place as nearly represented as can be. As I have been so lucky as to visit some of the places photographed by this artist and technician, I'd like to say that his work can have the power of a personal memory or a dream of a known place. I've just returned from a visit to the Guadalupe Mountains and the Carlsbad Caverns National Parks. Often, a photograph can be a barrier between the viewer and the remembered place, but not here. I would recommend these photographs to anyone who wants to have some inkling of what it is like to stand at Smith Springs, in McKittrick Canyon, or on the slopes beneath the east escarpment of the Guadalupe Reef. There is, sometimes, a great artistic achievement in verisimilitude.

Your pictures of Jeruslaem hardly show a single Jew. You also make sure to mention the Temple Mount is holy to all three religions while ignoring that it is ONLY central to Judaism and holy to Islam (especially) and Christianity ONLY because it was known as being holy to the Jews.
Joseph. Passaic, NJ USA - Mon, Nov 08, 04 at 09:27:13

Tuan's answer: I have actually more close-up portraits of jews than of any other people in the pictures of Jerusalem. I am sure I would even had more if the residents of the Mea Shearim district disn't turn away from my camera. As for the statements about religion, I believe mine to be factually correct, although certainly incomplete (terragalleria.com is not an encyclopedia). I am not so sure about yours.

Hi there. These are terrific images. I especially appreciate the textual information you provide (in the mouseovers, though I was surprised you didn't use alt tags ... whatever). Anyway, in http://www.terragalleria.com/asia/japan/tokyo/tokyo.2.html the word precinct has been misspelled as precint. Otherwise, hey, keep up the good work.

I went to Stockholm with my boyfriend last w-e, that was my birthday present from him. It was my first time ever in Scandinavia and I fell in love with Sweden, at least with the part of it that I saw... I just looked at your pictures of the area of Stockholm and couldn't get enough of them. It really makes me feel like going back there as soon as I can. Each view is beautiful and the air there is so pure... That is very well reflected in your pics and I love them! Superb work!

Dear Mr. Luong: My husband and I recently celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary, and because we met and fell in love in Yosemite, we decided to give ourselves a very personal anniversary gift - a photograph of the Valley to hang above our bed. We looked for almost a year before we found the photo you took on the trail to Upper Yosemite Falls. In it, the falls cascade down the left side of the photo, the Valley is spread below in all its June greenery, and Half Dome shines in the distance. The photo is now framed and hanging above our bed, reminding us daily that on our first date we hiked to the very spot from which the photo was taken. Thank you!!!

I found your site a few hours ago and can hardly tear myself away from these marvellous pictures. I've visited some of the places you have photographed, especially those in SE Asia, and your images make me feel like I'm back there. But you haven't been to Indonesia yet, as far as I can find out! I lived in Central Java for three years and my wife (who is from Sumatra) and I have travelled a bit around the country - you would find lots more sensationally beautiful and interesting subjects there, too! Thanks, anyway. - Roger

Your site has loads of BEAUTIFUL pictures, I don't have enough saving to travel around but this site opened my eyes and enable me to see the beauty of this world. One recommandation is that i think you are charging too much for your pictures :) if the prices are more resonable i bet there would be a lot of people interesting in buying them

Dear sir, i saw ur pages including the pictures of my country, Myanmar. Most of the pictures are lovely. I guess you came here around 2000 because of a pic of Inle Lake. There was the market festival there in that time. As I am working as a tourist guide, i've been to the places of Myanmar other than the places u have been. I also like photography and take pictures wherever i go. If u would like to see them, i can send via email ant can tell u which places. Our job is like ants; not too much work in the raining season and then hand to work hard in cold and summer season. As it is rainy season at the moment, i am taking a basic photography class from Myanmar Photographic Society. If you have chance to come Myanmar again, u should go to this society. Some of photographers here are really good and their pieces are very well done. If u want me to ask about Myanmar, don't be hesitate to contact me. I include my email address.

I really love your images. Have you ever thought of B&W photography? I have one comment on the Image "Valley View in winter with fresh snow" - (the spot you were at is called "Gates of the Valley" by Ansel Adams). I love the image, but from the low vantage point you took the image at, the horizon and mountains look a little off vertical. I know this is probably NOT the case, but you might consider making the scene LOOK more vertical. Otherwise the images are just gorgeous! Thanks for sharing them. Roger

Merci pour ce moment d'emerveillement. Bravo Tuan, ton site est magnifique. Je connaissais déjà ta page sur Yosemite , qui nous a été très utile lors de nos premiers big walls dans la vallée. Rêve de voyage et de paix quand on admire tes photos comme on parcours le monde. Un poème sur l'invitation au voyage car ta page nous appelle pour parcourir les beautés du monde :

Tu es plus belle que le ciel et la mer 

Quand tu aimes il faut partir
Quitte ta femme quitte ton enfant
Quitte ton ami quitte ton amie
Quitte ton amante quitte ton amant
Quand tu aimes il faut partir 

Le monde est plein de nègres et de négresses 
Des femmes des hommes des hommes des femmes
Regarde les beaux magasins
Ce fiacre cet homme cette femme ce fiacre
Et toutes les belles marchandises 

Il y a l'air il y a le vent
Les montagnes l'eau le ciel la terre
Les enfants les animaux
Les plantes et le charbon de terre 

Apprends à vendre à acheter à revendre
Donne prends donne prends 

Quand tu aimes il faut savoir
Chanter courir manger boire
Et apprendre à travailler 

Quand tu aimes il faut partir
Ne larmoie pas en souriant
Ne te niche pas entre deux seins
Respire marche pars va t'en

Je prends mon bain et je regarde
Je vois la bouche que je connais
La main la jambe l'œil
Je prends mon bain et je regarde 

Le monde entier est toujours là
La vie pleine de choses surprenantes
Je sors de la pharmacie
Je descends juste de la bascule
Je pèse mes 80 kilosJe t'aime 

Blaise Cendrars, Feuilles de route, 1924

Encore merci et fais nous encore rêver et partager ton monde de couleurs. Eric

Thank you for the beautiful pictures of Vietnam. I left Vietnam when I was a child and have never been back. During the war, we never ventured out of Saigon, so my memory of VN is confined to Saigon. It was wonderful to see pictures of different regions of Vietnam. Such a beautiful country. I am sending your link to friends. Thank you.

There are many photographers out there. You're the only one it seems who has taken the time to visit and photograph American Samoa. This alone is reason enough to take your work seriously. I would greatly appreciate it if you could take the time to answer two questions please. Firstly, what made you visit American Samoa? I am asking this because I too am visiting this destination for a month, later on this year, and I am really looking forward to being one of the only tourists in the country, particularly in the Manu'a Islands. Secondly, this may sound silly, but here goes - I want to photograph the dramatic landscape of Ofu viewed from the lagoon, my question is : will my tripod get rusty if I use it in saltwater? I eagerly await your replies - cheers and keep up the great work!

Unfortunatly, it is not often that someone of high caliber will take the time to teach those just starting. I feel your photographs - they speak to me, indeed - all people. You have a natural talent - I have faith that your work will help preserve / protect our natural resources as they are today. If you are in the area again - Reno - please drop me a line, it would be an honor.

I am just in awe of your photography! What started out as a little guidance to my 14 yr. old son on computer use on how to discover what Vietnam and Thailand looked like for a school report hooked me (the mom) spending hours and days looking at your photography. I want to go to Asia. It is so beautiful. I have looked at many other travel photo web site but they are really poor comparatively. The information you added to the photography was really interesting as it would be very time consuming to uncover all that information. I just realized that you have been to many other places after discovering your home page and look forward to pouring over the pages. Its about as close as I can get to traveling at the moment. I just wanted to thank you and tell you, as you probably know, your photography is so great, it literally transports me to those places. Lori

Your images are much better than the ones I brought home many years ago. Perhaps I should visit your country once more under different conditions. Nui Ba Den has held me in her grip since I laid eyes upon her 34 years ago. I heard that there is a cable car to the top. The top of the mountain always glowed every night nearly from attacks from the People's Party of Vietnam. Peace, Robert

Thank you for sharing your beautiful work. I left Vietnam when I was 3 and have lived in the US ever since. I never really knew my country, so most of my images of Vietnam came from Hollywood: battlefields, jungles and rice paddies with helicopters circling overhead. It was moving and refreshing to see the different regions of Vietnam through your eyes. You captured the beauty, grace, and dignity of a nation and people. I'm grateful. Thank you.

Trên đảo Tasmania, ở Australia, có một loài động vật trông rất xấu xí được mệnh danh là quỷ dữ. Tên khoa học của chúng là Sarcophilus harrisi. Hiện chúng là một trong những loài có túi chuyên ăn thịt sống có kích thước thuộc vào loại nhỏ nhất. Con đực trưởng thành có chiều dài khoảng 0,6m, nặng 12kg. Con quỷ dữ này có cổ rộng, mõm ngắn, tai tròn. Thân mình chắc nịch nhưng các chi trông nặng nề. Bộ lông đen, ngắn, dày, mềm. Đầu to, bộ móng vuốt sắc, hàm lớn, răng khoẻ, có thể nhai vỡ xương con mồi. Chúng hoạt động chủ yếu về đêm và thường săn thú nhỏ, bò sát, cá và động vật không xương sống. Con vật này di chuyển chậm chạp nhưng khôn ranh và mạnh, thường ngửi dò tìm con mồi và tấn công bất ngờ. Tuy chủ yếu sống trên mặt đất nhưng chúng có thể leo trèo lên cây. Loài thú có túi Sarcophilus harrisi sống thọ khoảng 8 năm, sinh sản vào năm thứ 2. Mùa sinh sản từ khoảng tháng 3 đến tháng 5. Sau thời gian mang thai khoảng 31 ngày, con mẹ đẻ ra một lứa có từ 1 đến 4 con. Chúng được nuôi nấng trong túi mẹ cho đến khi được 15 tuần tuổi. Thời gian sau đó, con non được để nuôi trong tổ hay được mang trên lưng mẹ. Con non cai sữa lúc được 20 - 30 tuần tuổi.

I stumbled onto the Large Format Photography page quite by accident. It sparked old memories of Dad showing us how to load film in the "coat closet", and renewed my wonderment of even the simple things we tend to take for granted. Thanks for your efforts to smoothe the way for entrance into this art form. Bruce

The pictures in this are absolutely perfect. I am astounded by the sharpness and vision that these photographes exude. I am was interested in a Large Format camera, after seeing these I think I am going to go ahead and purchase a system. I have seen tens of thousands of images, and there have only been a few that make me gasp. These are some of those.

As a relative newcomer to large format photography, I was significantly influenced on viewing Tuan's work. The technical standard is supreme, but the many other elemental factors which are generally regarded by the discerning, as embodying 'fine art' are visually evident. A delightful portfolio enhanced by a more than generous attitude to the non-commercial members of the public domain.

I am really really impressed by the pictures in many of the galleries, and I would definitely like to link you guys up once I set up my new website. I also added a link to my own Vietnam Gallery I created while on vacation this past summer. Great photos like these inspire me to continue to pursue photography despite the fact that my major is finance.

Hello Tuan, At the beginning of this year i was thinking (having a dream) to photograph every single US NPs. But a second thought came up: who was crazy enough to do this??! Until I found you web-site sometime mid-year and I knew it is do-able. Your work is simply amazing and phenomenal. it amazed a lot of people, myself included, non-photog and photog alike. Good luck! All the best!

My wallpaper subscription was worth every cent! Never have so many extraordinary photos been made into high quality, high resolution wallpapers. My computer desktop is the envy of all who view it thanks to Tuan's exquisitely beautiful wallpapers. I hope to "save my pennies" for some of his prints for my house walls. Perhaps i can direct Santa to this site, huh?

Just saw the pictures of Tay Ninh and the Cao Dia Religion and Temple. I visited there in 1971 while stationed near Tay Ninh. It was rumored that the Caodiaists were anti-Communist, so I've often wondered what happened to them and the temple. Based on my memory and the photos, little has changed. Thank you.

Hey Kuan, I can't remember how I found your site, maybe a link from Photo.net. Just took a look at some of your work from the southwest and wanted to tell you it's GREAT. Nice to see some large format work in film so well done. I use to live at the Grand Canyon Arixona and know many of the places you photographed. I just took my oldest son to work at the Canyon this fall. He will follow in his mother and Fathers footsteps, maybe for just a littile while. For now he can enjoythe Canyon. Unfortunately, he dosen't have a camera with him nor a computer or I would get a cheap digital for him. Anyway, I just wanted to comment on your photos and went off here. Your work reminds me of the places I wish I still lived in and near. Nice work, Brad

Hello Tuan, I traveled to some foreign places while working as a civilian for the US Govt. and photographed what I could in the short time that I was at them. Your photos took me back to some of the places I worked and visited. I am awe-inspired by your expertise with a camera. Though my years are long, while viewing your photos of places I've been, I feel younger; as though it was only yesterday that I was there — although its been some 30-odd years since. Thank you for sharing with me, memories of my past. I wish I could live another life to return to those far off places again. Gene

Dear Tuan, As an oversea Vietnamese living too far away from our home country, I have often coped with my homesickness by strolling trough all the innumerable illustrated books about Vietnam available in Europe. However I have not yet found such a sensitivity as portrayed by Your magnificient pictures about Vietnam. It makes indeed a fine difference to have a photographer of local ancestry frame the country with all its abundant variety from a genuinly Vietnamese perspective. If I were not still a university student with modest ressources I would not haquite a bit of photography and am only beginning on my journey with large format photography. I hope to be nearly as good! Thanks for the show!

this is a beautiful web-page capturing the full beauty and essence of this state that i consider, pure untouched work by GOd. every time i feel down i come to this webpage and just skim through some of the pictures and read about your treks. i really hope to be able to visit places like lake clarke, as i know for sure id find my self peace in such a place. i hope to go in about two years time, i am 16 now, and hope to take a gap, year to be able to travel. but im still a little confused as to how i go about it. would the first step be to research ticket prices? where would the plane go from london englad, and so on. id really just be a begginner to this type of thing, but i was wondering if you could tell me step by step how to go about it at 18, and if i should go with someone. many thanks michael

I want to first let you know how beautiful your work is. I am an aspiring photographer and 28 years old. I also have a wife and two children. Right now I live in Florida, which I hate! I have been here nearly my entire life. I have, however, been out to the Pacific Northwest several times.And I love it! I have decided that I am going to come out there and make a go of my lifelong dream. But I am going to have to come out there by myself and find a job and home for the family, who will have to stay behind until these things can be taken care of. I was wondering if you could maybe tell me what kind of an area Eastern Washington,Northern Idaho,or Western Montana are.I suppose that I will just ride the bus until it feels right! Hopefully some day I will have some pictures as beautiful as yours!

Tuan, I found my way to your site as I bounced around the net looking for sites on Yosemite photography. I am an amature photographer (but I have sold a few prints), and I have taken some pretty amazing photo's over the past few years, but you sir are in a different league. Well I will be traveling to Yosemite in mid May for some hiking, climbing, and photography ... I can only hope to capture images half as well as you hve in the Valley ! Would you recommend any places that I should make certain to visit, from behind the camera, while in Yosemite? I am using a Nikon F5 with a variety of lenses, but nothing longer than 400MM.

I am recently returning to the large format medium after a period of quite a few years. I first learned photography on a 4x5 view camera,only to find out that it wasn,t the format to use as a combat photographer. This is my first time visting your website and I find it to be very,very helpful to me. Your photos in the large format section have enforced my beliefs that this is the best format and way to express my visions. Thank you for your help. I look foward to seeing more of your work and visiting your web for more instructions. sincerly C.B.Young II

I am transcribing my grandparents memoirs into digital format. In her experiences, she spoke of many of the places of which you have images of at your website. First off, I have to say that the photography on your website is excellent. Such vivid colors and contrasts! And I commend your insight when capturing the beauty of nature's scenic wonders. As an amatuer photographer, I have a deep appreciation for such fine and beautful work. You have a god-given gift. The reason I am writing to day is to let you know, pursuant to your Copyright & Use Policy ( http://www.terragalleria.com/copyright.html ), I have captured a number of your images as an inclusion to an archival & historical project. My project is strictly a labor of love to memorialize my grandparents. When they published their memoirs, they only had 30 hardcover copies made for immediate friends and family. My project is to make their works available for all members of the family for generations to come. I have rough drafts of the works, which I affectionately refer to as "The Brady Trilogy" located at http://freepages.rootsweb.com/~bradytrilogy/cover.htm Using many of your images, I have created minature photo galleries that are tied in to the text of their memoirs. I draw your attention to the sections in "Reclaimed Memories", especially the vacation periods of 1955 & 1963. I know that pursuant to your policy, that a limited amount of permission is already granted for the use of your images. However, I just want to personally make you aware of my intentions for the use of your images and would appreciate any feedback you may have. Please be aware that I am still constructing this site and fine-tuning it, so I have yet to adequately place all the links to your website and copyright information, but that is a top priority and that task will be completed over the course of the next couple of weeks. I have posted an acknowledgement on my Bibliography at this point, but I wish to make it abundantly clear at all points what the source is of these beautful photos. To refer to them as "images" or "pictures" would seem demeaning, and disrespectful. I have been working as a free-lance web-designer in my spare-time and have been to many websites, viewed many, many works by other photographers, but your's is by far the most consistent in quality, as well as artistic content. I applaud your work......... Thank you for any consideration and look forward to hearing from you. Robert M Brady

Your site is absolutely fantastic. I love photography but have not traveled half as much as you have and I only obtained MF equipment less than a year ago. For over the past twenty years I have used 35mm cameras. I own a PC lens in 24mm which gives a certain amount of flexibility without the amazing sharpness you show in your awesome compositions; from color to perspective everything is vibrant about your photographs. I am also an ice climber but of a much lesser caliber than yourself. However I do understand the requirements of the sport and enjoy it tremendously. I have considered large format, the 4x5 more specifically. I shoot in square format 21/4x21/4 and I truly enjoy the perspective it gives. When I see the places where you took your LF equipment I can only give you my respect. I was told about your site by Lucien Nocera whom I met at the Rockreation gym in Los Angeles and who is a friend. Your site is fantastic. I will spend lots of time looking at your photographs and learning a lot. Mine don't compare, but I love photography. Best regards. Paul

After taking an upper-division course in the geology of our (USA) national parks at Portland State University, I was very much impressed by the quality and overall comprehensive geology which is accurately depicted and representational. Also, as a graphic design major--having a background in layouts, compositions, and photography)--I thoroughly enjoyed 99% of these photos (the other 1% was beyond exceptional!!!). I just wish I were able to afford a large print on back-light compatable paper to display on my wall on a lightbox! The computer monitor and images as background wallpapers will have to do for now...

Your photographs of Yosemite are breath-taking not just for their visual beauty but because you have captured the soul of the Range of Light. I haven't seen anything this good since Galen Rowell hit the scene. I've spent years hiking and backpacking through Yosemite; your photos are like a homecoming. It's the small rocks, the waterwheels at dusk or the tree in the light that is so familiar and so hauntingly evocative. Tourists may not recognize all of these places but they sing to me. Thank you.

Looking to your site I've found something that was closed somewhere in my mind, and now it is open againg. I hope to arrange a trip ASAP and also have some good pictures like yours.

What beautiful pictures! In the photo at the beginning of the large format article, the one of the fall trees behind the lake, with the grass in the forground, you commented that the focusing of the camera was "intuitive". Did you mean you simply adjusted the camera until it "just looked right", or is there some technical proceedure which would seem "intuitive" to an experianced photographer? Please excuse me if the question is so downright dumb. I just today was given a 4x5 Graflex as a gift. In trying to find out something about what I was given, I was linked to your site. Something about your "intuitive" comment in the article got me excited to think that I (a wholly uninformed neophyte) might actually be able to use this camera to take such a beautiful photograph. Thank you, Mark Rogge

I never have forgotten them, but couldn't remember where I found them, or your name, to navigate back again. I just found them again today, by chance! And the rest of your work! You've obviously been very busy, and your work is outstanding, astounding. You're bookmarked now and I'll inform anyone looking for nature photos to check out your site. Keep up the good work. Phil

Dear Mr. Luong, I really cannot adequately express my gratitude to you for providing these pages. You ARE my introduction to large format photography. With the assurances provided to me by your excellent intuitive and technical expositions I have now purchased my first LF camera and system and am embarking on my goal of chronicling and illustrating the lovely countryside of my area. Perhaps it may become a commercial venture and one day I will be able to refer to myslf as a professional LF photographer. You have played an envaluable part so far and I cannot thank you enough. The world is a better place for people such as yourself who freely share their knowledge and actually go so far as to laboriously publish that knowledge.

It is already so hard to find such on the web. I plan on going to Great Basin National Park soon but until then, If It is ok, I am going to use some of your photos. I am a amatuer photographer right now. Come and see some of my pictures. Thankyou for such a nice website! Nathan

I really enjoyed your high-quality photos of my favorite place in the world, Isle Royale National Park. I especially liked the shot of early morning at Chippewa Harbor. The only suggestion I would have is for you to include more text about the locations and your experiences on the island.

Hello Tuan,

Thank you for posting such magnificent photographs on the internet. I was awe-stricken when I first watched the Sequoia sequence of pictures unveil themselves. Then, I was once again stricken when I watched the Rodendron and Redwoods unfold.

You have a natural god-given talent and I hope that, one day, I will be able to take pictures as well as you do.

I am truly inspired to go out and learn the craft of photography now!

Thanks again!

These are absoutely beautiful photos.

I have downloaded some for my personal use, and I thank you for generously providing that opportunity.

Thank you for the huge amt. of time that you must have taken in order to put this wonderful site together. I have only hiked in the Alps but I am familiar with the Mts. you have climbed & after seeing all of your awesome photos I feel as though I have been given the gift of being able to see places I never would have been able to see otherwise. I have visited most of the Nat. Parks also & loved seeing them through your lens...many of the same places I've taken photos of. After reading your goals in taking these photos, I just had to tell you that you certainly achieved them in my eyes. Absolutely, incredibly gorgeous!!! I feel like I just took the most amazing trip to all of my favorite places.Thank you from the bottom of my heart! In great appreciation to someone who has such a fine eye for beauty. Sincerely, alphound

I found these pages while looking for information on Denali National Park. I've just spent many minutes simple in awe at the quality of the photographs and the beauty of the places themselves. Simply stunning. I've been intersted in photography and wildlife for over 30 years and I've never seen anything like it. Thanks you for giving me an enormous amount of pleasure. I've bookmarked these pages and I'm sure I'll return many times. Thanks you, Paul Yates, West Yorkshire, England.

Beautiful photographs, excellent web site. I'm a regular visitor of your galleries since 1996, they inspired me a lot in setting up my own photographic site (http://www.cameradigita.com). I liked very much your montain and landscape pictures. Actually, I never understood what people like in climbing but from your pictures I start to have an idea :-)). Concerning your travel photographs about South East Asia: I had been to most of the places too but could not take as many good pictures as you.

Dear Anh Tuan, My friend shared with me your website, because I went to Vietnam in February (Tet). Your photos capture so much of what I saw there. It was my first trip, so I took a lot of "I was here" photos, but I was inspired. I wish to return with a professional camera and time to absorb (take photos & write poems). Warm wishes, Thuy Vi

First of all excuse for my mistakes (I speak a very, very, very poor english...) and then I want to ask you what's your job? And how long do you train evry day to climb over that difficult mountain? With my job I unfortunately have so little time that every time I'm able to climb, it's a sort of titanic experience!!!!! But I don't go away from the mountain for nothing!!!!! Ciao Annalisa

I am a intermediate climber with bolted sport runs and multi pitch bolted climbs in mind , Iam not familiar with the U.s. venue of bolted runs I climb with a group of 8 and we are currently planning a trip.Our problem is we don't know to go to Utah or Yosemite, Iam not much of an internet user and your site is the first of its kind that I seen, Irealize the kind of climbing I am refering too is not your flavour but perhaps you could point me in the right direction of finding an info source.I really enjoyed your sight and I hope to hear back from you.

Tuan, What a great web site you've created for exploring large format photography. I was just left gasping for air in my excitement over the extraordinary quality of the images you've created expecially the one titled 'Cliffs and trees, Yosemite NP ' and also the forest shot on the opening page. Before I totally lose it and go out and blow a house down payment on a mamiya 645 large format do you have a more sane and practical advice on what would make an ideal firsttime large format camera purchase? Keep up the wonderful work, and thank you for sharing it with us. Ted C.

If you where not able to be a mountain climber where do you think that you would be ? What was your back up job? Do you ever run out of oxygen and have to turn around? Do you ever get afraid that the air is to thin and you have to turn around and then get mad that you had to turn back a round?

Honestly I dont think that I could handle the height of the mountain, so therefore I dont think that I would be able to go mountain climbing. What has been the highest mountain you ever climbed?

From your copyright statement, I hope it okay for me to use your photo(s) as a background for my church's powerpoint on Sundays. We select landscapes (typically) and fade them slightly and superimpose the worship songs/lyrics over top for the congregation to read. I would, of course include a copyright line as requested and also point people to your site should they ask about the photos. If you do not find this agreeable, please let me know. This is the only place and manner in which we would be using your photos. Thanks in advance, Jason Uberig

I am a 35mm photographer who is looking into large format (Arca Swiss) for landscape work. I am a serious amateur photographer. What basic reading and research material do you recommend? Are you doing digital scanning of your images, if so what scanner do you use? Please also reply to this work email cmazansky AT cchcs.org Your work is just magnificent. I have used your Arches winter photo as a screen saver. I was there in Set. and photographed from the same position but not with the same wide angle (see my site for this image).

To be honest, your photographs have captivated me to such an extent that I have made the decision to build my own large format camera.

I have been doing research on all sorts of climbing. I was wondering if anyone would know the history or give me a refrence on where to get the information of ice climbing or rock climbing if you know anything about that. I 'm looking for things like how it began, who started it, and when did it become a sport. I would really appreciate it if someone would help I've looked must be the most incredible time looking at your site! I am excited at the thought of what I have to look at. It's like a good book that you anticipate reading. You have made the cost of Internet a pleasure! Thank you so much for the excellence of your site. Your photographs are the next best thing to actually being there. I loved Alaska. It has always been my dream to go there but I think this will now be impossible for me. (I am from South Africa and our Rand has dropped out the bottom). Thank you, thank you and thank you. With much appreciation, Isit

Fantastic website! I wonder what keeps you going. One small criticism: Much of the information you provide is time-sensitive, but the articles aren't dated. I get excited about a piece of climbing or photography gear and then find there have been several generations of upgrades since the article was written.

So he's just started looking into the info he can get over the net. Your pics are going to send him crazy. I'm going to give him your web site address tonight, January 4th, 2002. Maybe he'll send you a little note too. I'll try to remember to remind him. Thank you for all your efforts.

With my fear of heights this is something I would never be able to do. Thank you for sharing your experience through pictures.

I have a question for you regarding the tent you used - the Warmlite 2R - I've looked into this and it looks pretty cool. Did you get the "aluminized top" option - which he recommends if you have the tent in the sun a lot ? I was wondering if it is really necessary. Thanks very much ! Ken

I'm heading to Chamonix the end of this august, how long till I can expect to find some ice? Are the alpine couliors formed year round? Where is a good spot to camp and meet other climbers (I will be alone and in search of a partner). Any other beta regarding recommended climbs (particularly ones I can solo), other things to do, and cheap pubs to frequent. Thanks and keep up the good work. TRavis

These photos are fantastic. I can not imagine sleeping in a hanging basket on the side of these ice formations. I have tgried many things but your hobby is one I would much rather look at photos of than attempt to make a climb. A good friend of mine "Lester Collins" sent me this email of all these photographs. I am so glad he did, I found them most interesting. Where do you get the courage to make such perilous climbs?

Hi, my name is Mara. I am from Italy (close, so close to the Alps and the Mediterranean beaches ...). I have been in the US for work in the last 2 years and your pictures "stabbed" my heart. I used to do a lot of little and big adventures with my friends out there. I have been through a time where I worked-worked-worked a lot, but I know my soul is out there, where nature can give you the most beautiful views and feeling. Thanks for waking up again my favourite part of me, with your wonderful images. :)Mara(:

My hat is off to you. Your images are superb. I can't fathom lugging around the large format camera and tripod, to say nothing of all the other supplies you must need. I appreciated reading your comments on your camera. For quite some time I have toyed with the possiblity of getting the Zone VI field camera, but I have yet to make the plunge.

Hello Tuan, I am really impressed by your life story and all your accomplishments. To say the truth, I never heard from an individual who managed to combine his scientific career and his artistic and explorative interests in an equally astounding manner. Wow! Also, a very nice angle on Delicate Arch. I was able to watch a sunset on it last year, but from the other side. At any rate, keep on doing what you are doing, and good luck with everything. Christian. P.S.: The photo of the "rocky paper proof" is great.

Also your pictures are awesome (they really do justice to large format cameras, which hopefully I can play with someday) Have you ever experimented with balck and white photography(you don't get the emotions of color, but it is interesting nonetheless) Where exactly was the location of the Green Mountains, Vermont Photo? Thanks for making this wonderful page!

Thank you so much for taking me back to my early mountaineering days in the Valley. I am now living in snowy New Hampshire and I get a bit homesick from time to time. Your superior photography far outpasses that of my fellows, many of whom considered themselves professionals. I have downloaded most of the Yosemite pictures and I promise to use them only for my personal screen saver. Additionally I sent one picture to my sister for old time's sake and will send her your copyright wishes. Thanks again!

Could you be so nice to give me a piece of advice about Nikon's cameras. I was ready to buy FM2N,but I got deal for F3HP+28/2.8 Nikon for 550 bucks,the set looks in great shape. What would you recommend for lenses and flash for F3HP and if I could use a motor drive? Thank's a lot. Marcel

I love your photographs! Your site is truly inspiring. I am just a beginning photographer, who is studying Advertising Design at F.I.T. Hopefully, I will be able to see more of the world, and get some beautiful shots such as yours. I have one question. I believe you said you use a Nikon 8008 camera, and I have a friend who may be willing to sell me theirs. From my research, I think the camera would be a terrific tool to learn on, ( I currently use a Pentax ZxM) and a believe the Nikon lenses are great. Any thoughts you could add?? Many thanks for your comments, web site, and time. Regards, D. Johnstone

i am currently operating a professional portrait photography studio for a living (with the high competion) and have gotten out of large format. I studied and used the camera extensively during college and after doing "art photography". with the advent of digital and the hype attached i hadn't given LF much thought, at least, untill a time i could setup my enlarger and have the facilites for processing, archival finishing, etc. now i see that Lf is perfect for recording the image in high resolution in the field and then going digital...for the first time in a while i'm excited about my 4X5, and photography in general. thanks...ron h

Taun, I found your site while reserching the LF arena as an alternative to the Olympus Om2 35mm camera that I am no longer able to focus. Photography, owing to its two-dimensional presentation, provides a means whereby those of us with severe vision impairment can still see the world around us in detail. What an incredibly inspiring site...thank you so much for sharing your art.
Robert Bayles. Pickens, SC USA - Sat, Feb 10, 01 at 13:03:32

Had the pleasure of climbing Snake Dike in June of 2000. We started from North Pines an hour before dawn, and were the first party of the day on SD. Though we hurried to get started, by the time the 3rd pair in our group was at the first belay there were eighteen people at the bottom! Glad to say that our climb had no distractions, other than the incredible shine on every rock and tree. That walk from the end of the climb to the top is amazing! Back at camp moments before dark. Fantastic memories! Do you know of anyone who's done the southwest face of Mt. Clark? I'm nervous about that pendulum and how it's anchored. Thanks for the cool site! - david

Dear Tuan, First of all, I would like to say how much I have enjoyed looking at your work. All the landscapes are very beautiful and I truly admire your technique. My favorites are "Autumn Reflections" and "Delicate Arch", the contrast between the warm colours and the cold colours in my opinion is amazing. I am studying for a media degree and have an interest in photography. I am currently doing digital imaging, this is how I came across your work. I would be very grateful if you had the time to write me a short e-mail, with a bit of information on how you started your career, what it takes, the techniques you use and any other information that might be useful to me. Thank you for your time. Yours sincerely Kate Siney 1st year media student at Trinity and All Saints University College, Horsforth, Leeds

Hello, I have come visited your site often as I searched for large format photography info in the past. Some of the technical info I found interesting and informative and some a bit too elementary but I realize you have viewers of differing experience levels. I shoot 35mm, 4X5 and 8X10. (I built the 4X5 myself out of aluminum and it works quite nicely.) My subject matter is primarily scenic but I also have an interest in F-1 auto racing, hence the 35mm. My 8X10 is a 44 year old Burke and James w/ 12" Commercial Ektar which quite adequate for my needs. Your large format web site is certainly comprehensive and hopefully has enticed a feww smaller format photograhers to take a look a the beaty of larger format images. Quite frankly I never thought of your site as much more than a good information site until I saw your images tonight. I am impressed by the quality of your work, as I can it has a quality beyond just a scenic photographic. The images convey a feeling or mood which is quite powerful. Sometimes I acheive this same feeling in my images but it is a difficult thing to capture. By the way I spent several years in Vietnam in the late 60's but unfortunatly not as a photographer. I have never forgotten the beauty of Vietnam, however, and some day hope to return with camera in hand. Best wishes, Bob site is certainly comprehensive and hopefully has enticed a feww smaller format photograhers to take a look a the beaty of larger format images.

Keep up the wonderful work and thanks for having this portrayal of your photographs for all of us to view on the net. Eric. P.S.

Hi, I was just browsing through the 'net for some information and ideas to get into mountaineering, and I found your site. This page is great and I enjoyed learning about your different accomplishments. I have looked about locallyfor some courses to get into mountaineering but the scheduling for these events are few and far between...I was hoping you could perhaps aid me in finding some sort of entry point to access the climbing world. Currently I hike and backpack all year round, but am looking to dive into the depths of challenge that this sport offers.-- Respectively : Shaun.

Hello Tuan,

Just wanted to drop a quick note regarding the simply stunning photographs you take, they are truly exceptional and in this case, a picture is worth a million words. Awesome work! I wonder if National Geographic is after you to work for them as a staff photographer. =)

I really enjoyed you pages. I am a 48 year old American male who has spent too much time on the couch. In my youth, I participated in a winter climb of Mt. Washington which was turned back within sight of the summit by high winds and sub-zero temperatures. Currently, I am slowly working my way out of my mid-life lethargy by bicycling. I have cycled from CT to California alone and from CT to Key West, FL. I have always wanted to learn to ice climb and I figured that I was a fool for putting it off for so long.

Great page. I work at Teton Mountaineering in Jackson, WY and I am their web page designer. I put a link to your page because you cover the bases. All of us here at TM are into ice, alpine, sport, rock, and big walls (well most of us). I myself have yet to do any big walls but I think I'm heading to Zion this fall to do a couple of trade routes (spaceshot, moonlight butress, prodical son). Let me know if you have any suggestions for our page. I would love to have a partner for some climbs in the valley after I try out zion. So far I have dipped into waterfall and alpine ice, alpine rock, and sport (although not my favorite). Thanks for the great page. Robert Donovan rdonovan AT wyoming.com or tm AT tetonmtn.com

Tuan, I've been reading your stufcf on the net for the past 2 years. It is fantastic! It was two years ago that I decided to learn how to climb. Although I live far from the mountains I still manage to get there about 4 times a year. I have "bagged" peaks in the Cascades, the Dolomites, the White Mts. (NH) and the Rockies. This August (97) I will attempt the Cosmiques Route on Mont Blanc and the West Flank of the Eiger. I have enjoyed your Web publishing tremendously. Thanks! Brian
Brian Harris. Washington, DC USA - Fri, Jul 25, 97 at 13:00:02

Great web site! I wish I had found it before I did the leaning tower (July 4th weekend). And thanks for the beta on the Prow, we will be climbing it in August.

James R. Hamaker. Tacoma, WA - Tue, Jul 22, 97 at 21:03:05

Do you know any not very difficult, but not crowded route on the Mont Blanc? If so, please let me know. In the meantime check out my website containing some Monte Rosa photos.
Gergely Szabó. Budapest, Hungary - Tue, Jul 22, 97 at 06:15:13

This is the very best climbing web site I've ever seen.
Gergely Szabó. Budapest, Hungary - Tue, Jul 22, 97 at 05:43:38

Beautiful pictures. Your photography captures the feeling I get climbing. This webpage shows a vast amount of effort. I hope your RSI is healed soon.
Jerome Graham. Seattle, WA USA - Tue, Jul 22, 97 at 00:18:25

Cheers for all the great photos Tuan. Also the info about Yosemite. You should come and check out NZ sometime! Arwen.
Arwen Vant. Auckland, New Zealand - Mon, Jul 21, 97 at 18:05:45

Very handy site - just the thing to keep me interested in the more difficult decisions one confronts when contemplating the move into large format work!
Rich Ernst. Malvern, PA USA - Mon, Jul 21, 97 at 12:17:54

I am very impressed with both the quality and quantity of stuff you have put together for your home page. I especially enjoyed the photo essay of the leaning tower, which I am travelling to Yosemite to attempt next week.
Nathan Bronson. Waxhaw, NC USA - Sat, Jul 19, 97 at 22:31:05

I'm an amature photographer(truly beginner in photography), but a professional in tax and accounting. I found your place without my recognition and realized that this is a treasure of information I've needed. Thank you for your wonderful works !!!!!
Hunjae Park. Milpitas, CA USA - Fri, Jul 18, 97 at 19:05:30

Found your site and links very useful. I intend to go to to the Mont Blanc area in summer of 1998 and hopefully summit. I hope to have my own page up soon with items on Scottish winter mountaineering and the Cuillin Ridge.
Ian Rushin. Quorn, Leicestershire UK - Wed, Jul 16, 97 at 16:42:02

This is the first time that I have seen your page. My email address has changed (see above) but the old one still works. I've got about 6 more months here in France and your photos of France have already made me 'home'sick for MY alps. I'm more of an Ecrins kind of person. The photo of 'Symphonie d'Automne' - my first ice lead - already I have a wave of nostalgia!
jonathan george. Grenoble, France - Wed, Jul 16, 97 at 04:42:48

Thanks for the spectacular views of mountaineering. I'm a day hiker. Seeing your photos is a very expanding experience. Great Web page organization.
James Ferrucci. Waterbury, CT USA - Tue, Jul 15, 97 at 18:24:22

Enjoyed looking at your photos. were planning a trip to Switzerland, Eiger North face. Do you have any pictures? My uncle tryed to climb it in 1963 made it to the second ice field and had to turn around because of a bad storm. Its time for the younger generation to keep the leagacy going. Take care, Jerry
Jerry mc Kenna. Los Angeles , CA 90035 - Tue, Jul 15, 97 at 16:10:35

I just had to say thank you for all your wonderful photographs! You do something that few people ever do; experience the beauty of the world, and then are generous enough to share your fantastic pictures with the rest of us!! Thank you again!
Stefan Yotz. Kent , WA USA - Tue, Jul 15, 97 at 12:33:18

I loved the pictures on your site! I am wondering under what conditions I could use a picture of Mont Leblance on a web page I'm designing for Pinnacle Consulting Group (I'm one employee, my dad's the other). Please let me know.
Jenn Brooks. - Mon, Jul 14, 97 at 06:26:31

Your photography is terrific. And thank you so much for presenting it in a size which is perfect for use as wallpaper. Although I respect the discipline of such mountaineering, I don't know that it's for me. I don't have that much fondness for the color white. And I like body temperature too much. But I admire your ventures. Thank you for a very interesting opportunity for me to be a fly on the wall.

Hello, Tuan. I'm from Louisiana; however, I've been to Alaska and have seen Denali many times. I've spent six summers in the "Last Frontier," five of which were in Denali National Park. I'm sure you know how that experience has enriched my life. I have loved Denali since the very first time I saw it. Some day, I plan to climb the mountain, but I don't have the money, or time, right now. Anyway, your Denali trip account has been very enjoyable for me. It looks to me that you were extremely fortunate to have such spectacular weather for your climb. I have bookmarked this website, and I will visit it to see your other climbing experiences when I can find the time. Thank you for sharing them with me. :)
Robert Spears. Ruston, LA USA - Tue, Jul 08, 97 at 22:58:40

Very good website. I especially enjoyed the large format section. I'll certainly visit again.
Keith Taylor. Minneapolis, MN USA - Tue, Jul 08, 97 at 21:29:39

The Mountain Gallery is excellent. I haven't got much time at the moment but I will be returning to this site soon. I was just browsing some of the climbing sites thinking about the trip to Chamonix that I can't afford this year! Apart from making me extremely jealous (!), your pictures have also given me some inspiration for a few goals that I have been thinking about for the past year. I have a few queries, but will Email you about them at a later date.

Thanks to you, I finally found so many information about free-climbing and also found the name of my teacher V.Mitsiou somewhere in Greek section. I'm going today to do some free clibing at Filopapu a place near Acropoli where we get some practice while we're working in Athens and apart from weekends. Hope you're still doing well with everything. I'd like to hear from you as soon as possible. Kindest regards Maria
MARIA DIMOPOULOU. Athens, Greece - Thu, Jul 03, 97 at 05:14:19

hi tuan, i loved your pictures and explanations very much. i recently had a friend killed, tito carrasco,m.d. in mexico. he was from boliva and was a prominent climber. he was practice a climb in mexico, just a training mission, when a massive rock slide came upon him. he was a chief radiologist at md anderson cancer center. anyway after seeing some of his pictures I wanted to see more and found yours. thanks, they are great!!

Tuan L.. Columbia , MS USA - Mon, Jun 30, 97 at 21:55:56

The webpage with the link that sent me to your site had it quite right, these are some of the most beautiful scenes on the web. Thank you for you efforts. I am curious, though, whether you are familiar with Washington State's scenic Cascades. I usually call Washington my home, though I live in the city at the moment. In, fact, I was seeking-out pictures to remind me of where I always want to be when I dropped by your site. Please keep it up, for as many times as not, beauty must be put directly in the path of some folks' eyes before they notice it.

Very nice and useful. I am not a regular surfer -- don't want to spend the time -- but I enjoyed it enough to bookmark it which is something. I used to climb a lot and take lots of pictures. Now, they are both on the back burners. I recently bought a Cannon IXY (I hear it's called ELF in the US but have not seen it) in Japan. It is very small and takes wonderful pictures and can be operated with one hand. It is my first point-and-shoot and I love it. I still do use my FM2 and FM2N but less and less.

It seems that we all end up at tuans...I think that you need to climb full time tuan, so the cyber couch climbers can get out and climb more often.....
Zach Little. sandiego, ca usaaa - Thu, Jun 26, 97 at 10:59:46

Thanks for providing an intelligent forum for the large format photographer. It is refreshing to see information on topics other than why large format, et all. What I would love to see is more on the creative process, ie the zen of the large ground glass. KEEP IT UP. If there is anything that I may do to help, e-mail me. I have been working with the large camera as a main tool for over ten years. Platinum printing for quite a while as well Also, I work exclusivly with black and white materials, and love to help break misconceptions. I have found that there are many developers that give "pryo like" results without the problems, and have found a wonderfull replacment for oriental seagul, that is easy to find - it does require mixing your own developer. I am also working on an artical on why Dektol is not the best developer to use, Thank you again, Tom Pappas

Per Bjorkengren. - Mon, Jun 23, 97 at 13:49:13

Tuan, Great web pages. It brought back lots of memories of my visits to Chamonix, including soloing Mont Blanc via the Grande Mulets and by the Gouter. The Grand Mulets was great - peaceful and quiet. The Gouter hut was packed. It was the last weekend of the season (September '80) and was full of weekend climbers. We left late and passed loads of people throwing up on the Dome de Gouter. We were first on the summit and saw a fantastic dawn over Switzerland/Italy. regards, Mark

Hello! This is my first visit to your web site, and, definitely, wont be the last one! I've been in the Valley once and I think it is the best climbing area in the World. I could climb only free routes (because I broke my left 5th methatarsian bone 2 weeks before arriving to the Valley), and the next ones are the best: The grack Center (5.6), The Grack Marginal (Excellent!!, 5.9) Serenity Crack (.10d), The Good Book (Excellent!!, .10d), New Diversions (5.10a), ... I hope to come back pretty soon to try some longer free routes, and a hard aid one on El Cap or The Dome!

Tuan, Thanks very much for providing me with some excellent sources of information about Large Fornat photography and equipment, via your home page. I live in Great Britain and LF has never been as popular here as in the US so I have not found it so easy to get high quality information and guidance. I am just starting to use 5x4 and some 5x7/Half Plate but my results are not too good so far. I use various older cameras and lenses and I have a particular interest in using old or classic lenses - British ones such as Ross, Taylor Taylor Hobson, Dallmeyer and others such as Kodak and Zeiss. I am also a member of a small British club for MPP camera users. I regularly use a Micro Precision Products Microtechnical Mark VII 5x4 camera and I have just started to use a MPP Micropress 5x4 which is similar to a Speed Graphic. My Half Plate camera is a Kodak Specialist II but I use 5x7 film in it. Any U.S. user of MPP cameras is welcome to contact the MPP User's Club via me on Email or writing to a chap called Neill Wright. I don't have Neill's address with me today but I will send it in another Email soon. I am pretty busy at the moment (My wife and I have a new baby) but when I have time I will be happy to contribute some information on two subjects - MPP Technical and Press cameras and British lenses for Large Format use. Thanks, Tim Hicks PS I tried to email this but it didnt get through

Tuan - congratulations on an excellent site! I have recently taken up paragliding with some friends, and we are planning a trip to Chamonix, which is where I first saw the sport, when hiking in the mountains. We're also considering attempting Mont Blanc in about two years time, which is why I came across your site: I'm now desperate to get into the mountains! So far I've mosly looked at your photos, particularly the high mountain ones - some are quite breathtaking. I look forward to reading some of the written material, and returning many times to this site. Pete.

Tuan, I really enjoyed you home page. I like you opinion on bolting and am pleased to hear someone with the broader view of the relative effects of bolts on the environment. I think in general human observers are the only ones effected by bolting bare rock. However a square km of paving is a square km of sterilized landscape. All the best. Dave.

Excellent Photos of climbing, I think I need to practice a bit more to compete! We hope to visit Mont Blanc this summer and want to 'look' at the mountain, any comments? We have done no alpine climbing B4 (only UK rock and indoor), so we don't want to climb it - just get a good view. Best of luck with your climbing (and use a ROPE!)

I like your large format reviews. I have a Wista 4X5 DXII and love it. I think the Wista is the best compromise among quality, sturdiness and weight. Bellows length is limited, but I use it mostly for landscapes with 90mm and 150mm lenses.

I am looking to get into large format photography. I've been shooting 35mm for approximately 15 yrs. and do alot of nature photography. Enlarging from a 35mm slide is not satisfying especially from the standpoint of landscapes and waterfalls. Hopefully I will be able to move into largeformat soon!
Ed Morris. Brentwood, TN USA - Thu, May 08, 97 at 12:06:39

I was just surfing on by accident. Actually was looking for a famous climber by the name of JOhn. I don't recall his last name, but I was at the EMS store on Route 17 in NJ last night listening to him speak about his climb to Mt. Everest with the rest of the others that had survived and those who didn't. Their expedition was last year. It was announced on the news and on nightline. I don't recall, but a few that he knew, had bravely died just to get to the summit of Mt. Everest. I just want to let you know...because this climbing is really coming to my interest. I have cousins who do climb and it really fascinates me. Anyways, I like the pics that I seen. They are very beautiful. I think you are soo lucky. =)

I am an American living in Switzerland. At my place of employment I am totally alone in my interest of mountaineering. I would like to go after Mont Blanc alone, is this a wise choice. I am a little older and fatter now, although I am only 30. I lived in Telluride, Colorado fo 10 years and conquered all of the 13,000-14,000+ peaks there, but they are less than technical for the most part. I go to Kenya in January to hit Kilimanjaro, but that is less than technical too. So what do you suggest for Mont Blanc? Too Techish to conquer alone?
S.S. West. Neuchâtel, Switzerland - Sat, May 03, 97 at 11:43:58

No question - just "thank you" for the mind-blowing pictures. Thanks also for the "proof" quotes, which I have run off for work. I recognise some of the proof techniques you describe but (hope) I am no guilty.

Hey Tuan, Hi, you don't know me but I was a member of the trio who made the ascent of Denali, the first blind person. Our mother, I and my twin brother Marty had the opportunity to make this ascent in May 1993. I see you were on the mountain that year also. I ran into a person who said you had our picture included in your home page somewhere. Where is it? I see you have some great photos of the Alaska Range and Denali. Are you planning any climbs this year? Maybe you are already out on an expedition. Well take care, Sincerely, Michael Phelps

Like your web page. Am thinking of venturing into large format after 15 years in 35mm. Will never abandon 35mm but am cautious about spending too much on medium format. Prefer the simplicity of large format even though I have a Rollei-copy. Am still trying to find the best allround 4x5 to start with. Regards, Kevin Lee Sydney, NSW, Australia

Dear Tuan, I lived in Geneva last summer doing some work with WHO. My rockclimbing skills are about 5.12. And, I have been extreme skiing at 14,000ft. without difficulty. While in Grindelwald, Suisse, I hired a guide to climb Jungfrau (because I had not climbed a mountain before... with crampons, rope, etc.). However, a storm hit us during the night at the Monchschuhutte, so we went for the Monch summit instead. I was very pleased with myself, as we rapidly gained the summit without incident and made it back down without any problems. My big question is this, Tuan: I am in excellent shape, and I have only Monch (guided) under my belt with alot of sport climbing experience. What is your recommendation to me if I want to climb the Mont Blanc this June with a guide on the easiest route? I believe I can do it without difficulty, but I would like some sage opinion on this matter, as I do not want to get killed. Thanks alot! Cheers, James Wilson

I photograph a lot on the Alps, it's not too cold up there but I found same problem with film cracking; AGFA 50 (neg) breaks easily, ILFORD seems to hold up much better. I have a q I have a question for you: I am thinking of getting a wide angle lens to use on the Alps, do you find a 24mm good enough? How about a 21mm? (for a 35mm camera). Thanks.

This is awesome! I am a beginner climber -- I am also only 17. I have done a little climbing in the Tetons, and although I wasn't very good at it, it was a lot of fun and I would like to learn more and get better at it. This is a good start. (I am more into backpacking now). Also, I spent 6 weeks in Alaska and saw Denali from a distance ... it was definitely inspiring. If I was as good a climber as you are ...

Dear Sir, I read your attracting photos from Web. Those photos can really tells story of your hearts, which also what I wish to read from corner to corner. I'm now working in a trading company, with 2 kids-- 10 & 8 years olds, whom left me more time to pursure my photograph. I'm currently have Nikon F3, which I bought 12 years ago. And I started to print B/W photos some 6 months ago, and am still experiemtning each factors, which made my wife angay. You might have similar experience when developing photos. Simply to control each details on photos. So simple, while so difficult to control ti. I boutht a Rolleiflex TRL camera and sent it to Hong Kong for necessary maintenance. I'm now intend to purchase a Graflex Graphic camera from Amierica. Of course, the camera will be a 2nd hand. I have found some suppliers. But, I am still unable to confirm whom will give me expected equipments as expected. I prefer a Graflex Pacemaker Crown Graphic, or a Pacer Speed Graphic. Would you please kindly find a time to recommend the proper supplier for me to purhasethat camera from America? I understand camera is simply as brush for artis. However, if I could not get a camera with good function, will I get a high quality picture from my hearts. Would much appreciate your kind concern, we remain, Best Regards, Ming-Sung Lin

Want to learn more about large format

Excel.lent web site!!!!
Ernest Bladé. Barcelona, Catalonia - Wed, Apr 16, 97 at 00:57:44

good climbs to everybody!!!!
Luigi Spinoglio. Lanciano, Italy - Wed, Apr 16, 97 at 00:38:15

Enjoyed your info on the Canham. Any thoughts about a way to get into large format on a tight budget and still get lots of movements and a sizeable bellows, i.e., the Graflex is not an option? I've considered finding a good antique camera, but they are hard to find.
Rand Collins. - Tue, Apr 15, 97 at 16:14:08

I am new to the internet, but while "playing" what a treat to find your web site. I am an avid climber (mostly Yosemite and High Sierra) but am looking forward to traveling in the future. Thank You for a wonderful session on the net.

This is a really well put together site. Makes the pages of those of us who aren't world travelers pale in comparison!
Steve Hagensicker. Wash USA - Mon, Apr 14, 97 at 22:01:54

read some of your zone vi reviews. I own one for 4 years Paid $1000.00 new and was the best wooden camera available for the money even for humid and hot Florida. The wisner was to expensive for what it had to offer and I do not think it was as good as the wisner, but of course this was before calumet . What is this between Ron Wisner and Fred Picker?
Rudy Umans. Jupiter, FL Palm Beach - Mon, Apr 14, 97 at 20:17:58

awesome---i love it--a great way to pass the time daydreaming instead of working!
Matt Allen. ft worth, tx usa - Mon, Apr 14, 97 at 07:33:21

I found your gallery web address in a magazine called TRAIL published here in the UK. Thought I would see if I could access your photos. I have not seen much yet but it looks good so far. Thanks for taking the effort to put it up on the WEB.
J P C SMITH. BRISTOL, UK - Mon, Apr 14, 97 at 07:10:28

You have captured the essence of the wild places I so love - and teach others to respect. Thanks Tuan - your photography has captured what I can only remember. (I'm a lousy photographer!!)
Jim Streeter. Newquay, England - Sun, Apr 13, 97 at 15:03:57

Great Site. Just the laugh I need since I wasn't out climbing.
Shannon Deacon. Yakima, WA USA - Sun, Apr 13, 97 at 14:25:10

Tuan, Great page. I am still exploring it so I have few comments. I liked the literature on the cold mountain page (technique, screw placment, etc.) I am new to ice climbing (actually I have never done it, but will be soon)and found the material interesting and informative. Exactly what I was looking for.
Torben Grumstrup. Rapid City, SD USA - Sat, Apr 12, 97 at 23:35:27

I really enjoyed hearing the recording of Ansel Adams. Excellent images and well presented. I'll be back when I have more time.

I thing your page has become the home of climbing on the web, whenever I'm surfing I have to stop by and say hi
Dale Bish. Davis, CA USA - Fri, Apr 11, 97 at 17:46:14

Thanks for providing the great information herein. I originally found you via a large format web search. I recently purchased a Toyo 45AII and have been having a ball getting into large format for the first time... what a trip! I have been in and out of professional photography since I was a teenager and at 44 I have seen a lot changes in image making over the years due to our wonderful technology age. But, there is something very wonderfully simple about large format photography that is hard to describe. There's not many gizmos to play with; just a few simple movements and my imagination. Makes for better pictures, I think. Again, thanks for your efforts on this site. I plan on visiting often. Tad Dorsey

Why? Oh, okay. I appreciate the work you've done to make this info available. I've been climbing off & on since '71. Local crags in Minn., S.D. Needles, Devil's Tower, Wind Rivers, Tetons, RMNP, & Red Rocks. My immediate goals are to do a long roped solo in Red Rocks and Pervertical Sanctuary on the Diamond. I'm geeting too old to have any long range plans! Bye!
Jim Craighead. Stewartville, MN USA - Thu, Apr 10, 97 at 13:12:49

Searched for Arca Swiss info; found your LF photo page. This led me to your Yosemite page and Climbing page. This is great stuff! I'll be back when I have more time.
Ian Dodd. LA, CA USA - Thu, Apr 10, 97 at 08:18:22

Like one of your previous visitors I found your address in an English walking mag. TRAIL. What superb pictures. I've taken one to set as "wallpaper" on my pc so when the screen saver comes on I can see fabulous mountain scenery instead of the dreary walls of the office. Bad for concentration though - I start dreaming instead of working. Thanks for a super page - you've obviously put a great deal of effort into it. Best Wishes Joy
Joy Davies. Southport, UK - Thu, Apr 10, 97 at 06:05:04

I like your home page a lot! The script at the bottom, the layout and especially the pictures. I live in NC-the climbing here is pretty good; I do some leading but it looks like your into some tough stuff! Congradulation!
Brian Wilson. Raleigh, NC USA - Wed, Apr 09, 97 at 21:04:27

Bravo! You have an absolutely incredible collection of photographs. I just began my mountaineering last August when I climbed Mount Shasta. I leave for Mount Rainier in just over a month and then back to Mount Shasta at the end of July. I'm trying to determine whether I have the 'bug' or not. If I do, I'd certainly like to believe that Mount McKinley is in my future. If not, at least I got to enjoy your climb from the comfort of my office at UC Irvine, where I'm the Business Manager for the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology. Best wishes.
Larry Buttrey. Long Beach, CA USA - Wed, Apr 09, 97 at 12:06:23

Excellent Tuan! I read from your Yosemite page often. I am planning a trip to Yosemite in May to do a bit of free climbing and find your site entertaining and useful in learing bit about the valley routes, the setting and the characters. I'd love to do some aid some time but aid partners are vveerrry scarce in Texas. Again, I enjoy your site. Cheers, Steve Mays

Nice pics. I'm currently serving a stint as the Treasurer of the [Australian] Army Alpine Association (AAA). Last major expedition was to the Pamirs, in Tajikistan, Jul-Aug 96. A AAA team has just departed for Dhaulagiri I in the Nepali Himalayas. Expeditions to Aconcagua in the Andes (Dec 97) and McKinley in Alaska (May 98) on the drawing board.

Hi there Tuan, I came straight here before looking at your site in detail (my scottish presbyterian folks always taught me to be polite), but it looks good so far. I got the url from a uk walking mag called "Trail" may 97 issue, so look out for more visitors from the UK. First thing for me is to check out the Alps section, where I've skied and done a very little climbing, so I'll get on with that now. Thanks for the opportunity. Bruce.

Hi Tuan, My name is Johan and I'm a 24 year old medical student. I have just read about your expedition to Mount Mckinley. I would like to thank you for all the usefull information I found about the mountain. I'm planning to spend my summmer in Alaska and thanks to you I have the possibility to plan my Mount Mckinley trip from Sweden.
Johan von Heideken. Stockholm, Sweden - Sat, Apr 05, 97 at 06:19:06

This is one incredibly full site !I mean it has every bit of photographic knowledge that most people ask for and can't seem to find on the net. Happily I'll be including your site in my limited list of links. My site should be up in about 2-4 weeks. I'll be putting together both my commercial photography and quite a few formulas for B&W developing. I really like the large format material ! It's better than View Camera !

I was viewing your page with great interest. There is a Large Format photographer here in Florida: Clyde Butcher, we call him the Ansel Adams of Florida. There was a featured article in the last month Shutterbug. You should view his web page www.clydebutcher.com and you may want to link to his page. Also, I produced a videos series workshop with Clyde "Introduction to Large Format Photography: A Workshop with Clyde Butcher" that may be of interest to your market. If so, or you want more information. Contact me: Elam Stoltzfus Live Oak Production Group lopg AT digitalexp.com 904/674-2902 fax 904/674-2903 Thanks
Elam Stoltzfus. Blountstown, FL USA - Tue, Apr 01, 97 at 01:20:58

Hi, It's very nice for your page. We shared common interesting in photography only different is that you take much much seriously. One experience I got to tell you that I once used a gitzo 312 for taking stars in an evening of -20 C and after 45 minutes, the pressure of a FM2 with 300mm f4 made one of the leg curved. Be careful about Gitzo in extreme weather. Good Luck.

Brilliant site....thouroughly enjoyed visiting and will be back. Your pictures are fantastic! Currently live 1.5 hours from Yosemite and will be visiting tomorrow as the park reopened today. Your pictures have inspired me to find my ol' rock boots and get back out there! Who knows maybe I'll have my own pictures dangling half- way up El Cap soon! If you visit my homepage, I'm afraid it's only just up and running, but there is some nice pictures of Scotland (where I used to live before moving to CA) I'll be back!....Cheers.
Neal Evans. Clovis, CA USA - Fri, Mar 14, 97 at 17:35:20

Wow! is about the first thing that comes mind looking at your mountain/climbing photos! I'm really impressed. I've thought that there ought to be more climbing oriented photos out there, and I'm glad I stumbled across your site. Although there are a few images on my homepage, I've yet to scan most of the slides and none are as impressive.

I will be pleased to give anyone a tip on where to go for pleasure climbing.

I'm working for a magazine here in Japan, and would like to introduce your mountain page to our readers. Would you agree if I put your page address on it? Please tell me if this causes any inconvenience to you, asap. The magazine sees to feature mountaineering and outdoor sports for the next issue (April-May). Yours Sincerely: Masahiro YASUDA

Nice Ice photos You seem to get around alot. hope to see you in the valley or cascades some time. Thanks for working so hard on this elaborate page. It keeps climbers trapped in the rain semi sedated.

I really like your review on Nikon N8008/N90. It seems you exploited all the capabilities of these cameras. I was so undecided on which one to buy. But I think I will go for non-D lenses and N8008s/MF21/SB24. Unfortunately, I can only buy them used. Anyway, I better keep my FM2 too.

Tuan I have gotta say "well done mate"! FANTASTIC info about your climbs. You are a wild man :-) I have added your URL to my adventure section. I have some decent picts of the Austria and Italian Alps there too! Take care and keep "Stretching" yourself to new heights, Matt.

That's quite a collection of photos. I spent six months in South America last year, and unfortunately did not spend enough of that time in the Andes. I'm hoping to return to Northern peru this fall, I have to see the Cordillera Blanca. Why I didn't stay an extra month when I was there. Kicking myself slowly. Thanks for the pictures.

Dennis Busch. AK USA - Sat, Oct 19, 96 at 23:13:46

A very cool page for a climber to look at. I ice climb and mountain climb myself and your pictures blew me away. You should send them to a magazine. What is this most dangerous climb you've had?

I plan to solo it this comming spring or summer, probably around the May to July time. I can't wait to get back out. Take care and have fun with your next climbing excursion. -Jon

Hi Ho! This is wreck.climber Tom Kenney. I like your page, especially the photos of the Leaning Tower. YIKES!!! I also tune in to your occasional TRs on wreck.climbing. I left my link so you can look at my (crummy) photos and my (boring) trip reports. As of now, I've only got three stories, but more are on the way! I was hobbling around Yosemite (broken leg!!) this weekend (Oct 10-14) and saw a bunch of climbers on El Cap, WC, and one guy somewhere east of Glacier Point (east of Staircase). Any chance you were up there somewhere? (8^D) Bye for now! Tom Kenney

thank you, Tuan, for an excellent resource. it is personal sites like this one, and the efforts of individuals like you, that make the www worth exploring. fwiw, i am a fair climber (mera peak, khum dalre peak, denali, alpamayo, el cap, etc) but sadly a poor photographer (technically sound but without vision). how i wish you were with me to photograph some of mountains i have seen (esp in nepal & tibet).

I just want to thank you for the incredible pleasure you have provided me this afternoon with your extremely beautiful page. I am a Spaniard studying my Ph.D. in Economics at UCSD, and I love mountains. Last year I went to Zermatt and I climbed the Dufourspitze. It was beautiful. We also wanted climb the Matterhorn but we didn't feel very confident so it's something I hope I will make in the future. Again thank you for sharing your wonderful experiences. I will be visiting your page very often. Best regards, Pedro.afternoon

Apres la periode "these" (a Orsay!) ou l'escalade a Fontainebleau etait deja un luxe, je redemarre doucement ici aux USA. Mais les Alpes me manquent, meme si mon niveau ne me permet que quelques belles voies. Si tu connais des grimpeurs (falaise montagne) dans le maryland, let me know!!! Un petit message en retour me ferai vraiment plaisir!!!!! Melanie

Pour ma part je n'ai plus guère le temps de faire des courses en haute - montagne. Peut-etre dans quelques mois...l été prochain peut-etre...

Thanks - great images. It reminds me of working in Slovenia where I could see the mountains from my office. But. Even with millions of colours in use, I still had some color problems - distinct bands across the sky where the blue changed shades. It's a shame because the pictures are so good.

The photos of Denali are stunning. I appreciated your advice on cameras. I have actually had good luck with an Olympus Sup[erzoom 3000 using Fuji Sensia (100) film for recent shots in the Canadian Rockies. The zoom is an asset over the Yashica T4s that other team members carried. I plan to do a slide-to-slide comparison soon.

Wow! What a great page on Mountaineering you have! I spent Quite a bit of time here. I thank you for the many downloaded shots of the climbing scenes. You should count yourself very lucky to have experienced all you have so far in your life. Do you know where I can find scenes of Mt. Everest on the net. I want scenes of climbers in action and photos that can be enlarged for use as wall paper. Have a great day!

It's very impressive webpage! Have you ever been in Viet Nam? Can you speek the language? I'm also interested in photography and enjoy the outdoor. I grew up in Viet Nam and lived there for 20 years. I havhave been rock climbing in England for four years, although I mainly just tend to do crag climbing but the pictures are totally amazing ! How does the portable ledge work ??

Hello Tuan. I'm a fellow Mountaineer living in Alabama. Yeah, I know, you feel sorry for me. And you're right, Alabama is not the Mountaineering capital of anything. It only beats out Florida, Nebraska, Mississippi, and Louisiana. That is not good. However, Alabama provides me with quality Sandstone for me to hone my rock climbing skills. Where to you live? drop me a line sometime. Patrick

Since that worked...I will tell you more.....this weekend the rock was so hot we could not hold on. Dehydration had set in and we were out of water. It is not as severe as it sounds but it was the essence of the day. Heat, anxiety, lack of knowledge, fear of the unknown, let my partner and I to defeat more than once. The last rappel my figure eight tried to consume my prusik, just as I was standing on a ledge at the top of a completely new rappel. The slings of the top rope were not equalized and I could not get enough tension to let go because the last sling was too long...It was like.....let go...I dare you.....I could not let go.....I could not get up.....needless to say a good litre of sweat poured from my head.....interfering with an attempt to retie one sling with one hand......etc. etc. etc. but lived. We finally rap'd into a strange bear-like den chimney-type atmosphere....cool and refreshing.....My partner climbed first....only to send a truckload of falling rock and other debris, then finally decided to retreat. At one point, she went to take grip upon a huge component of the cliff....it crumbled, rocked, and then crashed down, landing on a ledge only to fragment into a thousand unpredictable destinations. She shouted 'rock'. But a last surge of awareness told me to keep the belay device tightly locked. Was she coming with it? Anyways, we lived. After that, we hiked 20 min. back to the boat (route accessible only by boat). Next time we must wear helmets. Thank you for listening.
MANITOBA, CANADA - Mon, Aug 26, 96 at 21:30:01

Know what? I think there is magnetic fields that draw me to different cliffs. I'm working on cleaning a virgin cliff. It is short, but dangerous. The rock is old granite, loose, and never encountered except by eagles, wasps, bears, deer, etc. It is nothing like climbing on routes someone else manicured and bolted and setting up toprope. It is a wonderful dangerous experience of finding your way. Something keeps pulling me to this place. When I am not there, I am dreaming about it.

Made good use of your Leaning Tower beta. Was a great help in our climb (documented in "So You Wanna Do the Leaning Tower." Let me know if you'd like to review it for possible inclusion in your climbing page. There's not much beta in my account, but I think I successfully capture the imposing nature of the route! Keep up the good work (and the great ice climbs). DMT

This is a fantastic directory. I am thinking about getting an N90 or F90x (in australia). I have been using a Pentax for all of my photographic life. I taught myself and now I want to go onto a Nikon system. If you have the time can you please write to me telling me some things such as: Without the SB26 (not the flash, but the back) is the camera still good? Also how much is the cable release? I am into long exposures, how much does it drain the battery? If I do get a cable release then will it drain it less? Thanx a lot and again excellent homepage.

Hey, I sure am glad that someone took the time to make a page (several, for that matter) to show some of the beauty that this Earth has to offer. I think that too many people take for granted the incredible place in which we live. I live in Utah, which is a beautiful place to live, but I can never take the time and get some snap shots to show everyone, and when I do, they dont come out all that great. I haven't gone to the picture tips yet, but I'll take some time some other day to see what you have to say cuz your pictures are zmazing. Thank you for taking your time to put this thing together.

i stumbled on your page (isn't that the way it always works?) and was delighted by your photo's. i am a bit of a climber myself, but stick to pretty low level stuff, and generally prefer rock to snow. ( all i've had time to look at so far is the denali section - so i am assuming from that you lean toward the snow scene ...!) anyways, nice photos, nice narrative along with them, to give some feeling to your experiences. i look forward to finding some more time to check out the rest of your offerings. but most of all, **thanks** for taking the time to put all this on the web! i know it is time consuming, and i appreciate your effort.

Awesome page. I have spent extended time traveling by canoe in the Northwest Territories of Canada, so am familiar with expeditions. I've always wanted to climb McKinley, so I really enjoyed the narrative and photos you put together. Thanks!

Do you know of any good sites on the web to find out about photographing at McNeil River in Alaska. I would like to learn as much as I can and get a shot at winning in their lottery system.

I've been interested in moving into medium format photography but recently ran into a friend who has been praising large format for landscape photos. I'm currently wanting to expand my photography skills and am excited about the prospect of getting started in either MF or LF photography!

This was the best mountain climbing experience I have had outside of being on a mountain. I have done some climbing in America (Rainier, Shasta, Hood) and South America (Aconcogua, Huayna Potosi) and was very excited looking at your Mkcinley photos. I am planning to go to Mckinley next year and seeing your pictures got me really hyped. If you can I would love to know how to download some of them. Thanks for making such a great Web page.
Martin Davis. San Francisco, CA US - Wed, Aug 07, 96 at 10:09:07

Hmmm... I am returning to large format field photography, and I was planning to get the ubiquitous spot meter, but I now wonder if the N90S will perform well enough. On the other hand, I have had a Leica M4 for many years, witht the MR4 meter, but the meter has finally reached the point of being unrepairable (the copper circuit board traces are pretty much dissolved inside, probably just from pollution), so I will need a meter for that too... decisions! Like your site: I'll check in again soon.

I was very interested in the section on X-ray machines- Thankyou for posting this valuable information. As a professional photographer myself I find this kind of information invaluable. I have been considering (before I saw this page) placing a blank film through and airport x-ray machine and carrying one through for manual inspection then processing them in the same tank to ensure identical processing, the taking densitometer readings of them to see if they had been fogged or not. If I do this I will send you the results if possible. Thanks again...

Congratulations. Especially the idea of offering some information about your experiences along with some excellent photos is a great one. I'm still looking for the right equipment for backpacking excursions. I tried 35mm (Nikon FM2), 4x5" (Toyo), medium format (Bronica ETRS), and probably the Bronica is the best compromise but it's quite expensive.
Thies Meincke. Hamburg, Germany - Tue, Jul 30, 96 at 01:09:33

This is my 1st time on the Internet, so bear with me (note my stumbling in identifying my E-Mail address ... I think I did it right). Looks like a great feature. I will be visiting it more. I am a beginning climber, myself. I did my 1st lead on rock, the other day at historic 'ol Ragged Mountain, Conn (very exhilirating experience). I'll be climbing the Connecticut Traprock crags, tommorrow, and going to THE Gunks, next weekend (Gosh, the climbing is wonderfully difficult there !). I enjoyed the ice climbing in the Adirondacks story. Climb On !

Interesting stuff... Nice pictures! Glad to see you are in favor of the Nikon 90 which I have just purchased. I'll be leaving for Nepal to climb Ama Dablam and intend on taking the camera with me. I've been using Fuji Velvia and Sensia and have had most success with those films. I bought a 35/105 and intend on getting a 20mm. I don't know about the 35/105... Maybe I should have bought a 80-200. I'm considering a swap, I'll have to find someone interested though. I also noticed that you speak french. I'm from France also, Clermont-Ferrand dans le Massif Central. Ca fait 8 ans que j'habite a Calgary/Canmore. At ta prochaine visite ici au Canada contactes moi. On ira grimper ensemble si ca te dits. Je pars le 20 Septembre avec ma femme pendant pres d'un an voyager autour du monde. Tu peut laisser un message chez mon beau-frere: 403 247-2377. Salutations distingues, Eric

Thank You for publishing a very inspiring set of pages! Interesting combination of hobby and profession you have. My humble page "Wireless Multimedia" hint on the same combination.

Inspiring work. Of all the personal mountaineering pages that I have seen on the web, I would have to say that yours is the best. Unfortunately I don't have a direct e-mail address currently, so I am using a friend's. If you wish to snail-mail me, my address is: Robert S. Spalding (there is also a Robert H. Spalding there, so use the initial) 4609 S. Xavier St. Denver, Co. 80236 My heartiest congratulations on your achievements as a mountaineer and climber. I do the same thing out here in Colorado, so I don't have to travel very far very often. I hope you continue to enjoy this sport, which is close to my heart as well.
Robert Spalding. Denver, Co U.S.A. - Tue, Jul 16, 96 at 08:06:22

I love'd the pic's of McKindly. I climbed the West Buttress in May 1995. We had severe weather that month, so, I didn't get to take a lot of pictues. Your pic's brought back a lot of good memories. The 35mm was just to hard to get out of the pack during the ascent.

Like your article and your photo. First visited Yosemite as a young member of the US Navy during WW2, 1944. Few people there at that time, few cars, the place was very quiet. Only a handful of humans there in 1944. Thanks for sharing your experiences, and your backgound is VERY impressive. BEst wishes, Byron Dillon....

I found your page through your article on the N90. Imagine my surprise to find a fellow climber at the other end. Just about to leave on a 3 month cragging holiday to the US ( 1 week to go) and I'm looking for a replacement for my 10 year old Pentax SuperA and have almost decided to get the F90x (N90 in US?) despite the weight/bulk. Thanks for the tips on your page! If you have any suggestions on what I should buy or, maybe most importantly, the cheapest place to buy a N90x in the US (and can reply by Friday 19th July) I would be extraordinarily grateful. Happy Climbing Mike
Mike Gidding. Melbourne, VIC Australia - Sat, Jul 13, 96 at 07:30:03

I enjoyed the information. I have been a photographer for 21 years. I shoot industrial, architecture, corporate, and travel photography. I also do landscapes for fun. I use canon 35mm, mamiya rz6x7 , 4x5 sinar, and 5x7 and 8x10 deardorff. I use the 5x7 and 8x10 for landscapes, although I sometimes use the mamiya for windy conditions.Iread with interest your comments on new vs classic lenses. I own mostly nikkors, which are superb. I also have kodak, goerz and voigtlander lenses.These perform very well too, although the kodaks are noticeably a little less crisp than the others.Bye for now, I will check in from time to time to see what is new.

Merci pour les magnifiques photos proposées si aimablement aux amoureux de la montagne! J'en suis, et j'apprécie à la fois les aspects esthétique et documentaire de la Mountain gallery. Un point commun entre nous: également passionné de montagne et de photo (mais avec un "palmares" infiniment plus modeste), j'ai l'an dernier fait la voie normale du Mont-Blanc, équipé d'un bricolage un peu spécial:une monture portant deux reflex 24x36... L'enfance de l'art pour la photo relief, mais les projections sont saisissantes! Encore bravo!

You have a great deal of good information and present a lot of things to consider here. Thanks for putting it all together. I haven't read it all, yet. I will probably have some questions, so send me a note if you don't mind answering some. THanks again.

This pages are really wonderful. Probably the best I've ever seen about mountains climbing. I love the Alps, have done some of the more famous out-bounds tracks there. I now learn climbing and will have my first real experiences this summer in the Pyrenees. I'll probably make such a site in september with my own pictures. See ya soon !

Great Page! I'm pleased a fellow climber has taken it upon himself to put so much time and effort into a climbing resource link. Thanks for all the great info and pics. P.S. I recently read about your climbs in Canada, how about an update on your page, or did I just miss it somehow?

appreciated your article on older large format lenses vs modern (esp older Super-Angulons)- liked the lead photo in Alpinista section section - reminiscent of Rowell- so what's the price on the 58 mm Rodenstock? Thanks

Howdy Tuan, Just stopping by to say hi to a real "peakbagger". I scramble, class 3-4 maximum technical. But I have climbed some excellent peaks and all the fourteener's in California, except Thunderbolt.(Those Palisades are nasty) But, I avoid serious exposure without ropes. 52 peaks over 10,000'. I grew up in the northern Sierras, at Lake Tahoe. Now I live along the Central Coast and my spare time is spent doing something we call "Full-contact" saltwater fishing. Basically fishing rocks near the breakers (wetsuits and boots a must). Probably more dangerous, but this pays better. If you have any fatality statistics for the Palisades I would like to see them , I had a friend get seriously injured on North Pal a few years back, and I got smashed by a boulder on Middle Pal, but was able to self evac. Anyway, excellent page and very easy on the download. seeya Mike

Great page, love the photos I wrote to you earlier with a question on gear. I asked what you thought of zip away hoods and the North Face Kichatna jacket. You mentioned you did not own one, do any of your friends? What do they think of it? What Gore tex jacket are you using? I know this sounds like 20 question but i am going to get into mountaineering and value your opinion as someone with a lot of experiance. I am planning on doing my mountaineering course in NewZealand, is there anywhere else that I should concider. The course 10 days long is very good, around $1000.00Us. Where elso could I go to do a really good course or learn to climb from other experianced mountaineers THANKS GREAT PAGE!!!!!!!! Alex V

Anyway, I am a computer programmer by day and a photographer by ...what ever is left of it. I don't know when I got interested in photography but I realy enjoy the art. Thank for sharing all the information. One thing, I have try to search for a section on the web where I can find out new techniques and post my questions. I am now doing wedding photography for other people but I would like to learn more about other great techniques there are. A greedy guy right? I would appreciate any info you may have for me.

I found your lens comments interesting. I have some that you have tried and some that are new to you. I have a 20-35 which I really love and a 58 F1.2 Noct that I have just acquired. Also a 28 F1.4. The new Nikkors (28 F1.4, 20-35, 80-200 F2.8) are really wonderful lenses. I have been taking night shots with the 28 and you can really see the difference between it and other lens; there's much less fringing around point light sources. I was interested in your evaluation of the 6 mm F5.6. I am trying to purchase one. I use Fish Eyes in my work at UCLA. Not really a technical application - I just like them for showing dramatic views of some of my projects. I am an engineer -- not an artist. The comments on the 35-200 surprized me. I have one which I use when I cannot take several lenses with me and I know I'll be needing some telephoto capabilities. I also have the 24-50 AF which I also take on "one lens" outings. I found your N90 review interesting. You are pretty particular about many features -- more so that me. I have 2 F4s, which are but I really like them. I like the manual-like features. They are indestructable. They screens get dirty but you can pop off the finder and clean them with a brush. I use the waist level and magnifying finders too. I'll keep cheching your board to see if you have anything new. mk stenstrom

I love your mountain shots...I am wondering what film you use for 35mm shooting? I have tried Velvia and love it but due to it's slow speed it is hard to use for climbing photography (I use a 28-200 lens...not a 24mm but very versatile). I am just about to get developed a roll of Provia 400 and Fujichrome 400 DX of shooting I did at Seneca Rocks and New River Gorge. 400 speed seems to be the best so far...but I'm not sure of the quality. Any advice would be appreciated. :) Steve

Great Page, I have been climbing for around 2 years now, since I was 15. At the finish of my final year in school I am travling to NewZealnd and doing a course with Geoff Wyat. I would really appreciate some advice from a guy who has probably seen what gear is good and what sucks. I am thinking about getting the North Face Kichatna jacket and am getting gortex pants from a company call Mountain Designs in Aust. North Face is not stocked in Aust, so no one knows much about it. I would by a Jacket from Mountain Designs, but they have a zip away hood that does not quite offer enough protection for my liking. What is the TNF kichatna like, is it a good choice. Well thanks and your page is cool Alex V

This is truly the best page I have come across. Since visiting Yosemite in April this year, I have not forgotten the incredible place. It's easy to see why so many people flock to the Valley. If I had just a small bit of Yosemite to climb here I would be happy! I have resolved to return to the valley in the next few years.

I have been an amateur photographer since about 1976 and moved to large format in 1987. I was pleased to see this page devoted to this medium, and even learned that my 4x5 is a Technika V rather than a IV (I got it used from a pro a while back). I would also like to add that in reading the entries here, I did not find anything I considered incorrect. A good page, nothing much new to me photographically, but I am glad to see this page and appreciate your efforts. P.S.: I found your equipment reviews straightforward, particularly regarding the Zone VI 4x5 and Gitzo carbon fiber tripod. I lug the Zone VI (16 lbs) now, but after I get back out of school again will get one of the Ries. My longest one day hike with it was approx. 14 miles over two mountains in the Smokies. One other thing and I will quit rambling. Tourists don't seem to know trail etiquette that the person ascending hasthe right of way over those descending (easier for descenders to regain their momentum after yielding). Pointing the spikes of my tripod forward when approaching someone who doesn't look like they are going to yield, and me not looking like I am going to yield, has proven quite effective.

Fine work, I myself am in the process of preparing my home page covering the synthesis of art and digital technology, but since I am also a serious amateur photographer, this WEB site will cover photography as well. Check it out, but be aware of the fact that the URL I gave is temporary, and it is going to change in the nearest future. I'll keep you posted to the URL change, so you won't miss a thing. The home page is currently under construction, but a lot of interesting stuff is going to arrive there soon. Sincerely, Vladan.

Bonjour, J'ai trouve ta page particulierement attractive. Les recits, les photos. Tout cela fait rever. J'ai goute a la montagne il y a bientot un an, par deux stages UCPA a Chamonix. La premiere fois, j'etais litteralement terrorise par l'escalade et autres pentes de neige ou de glace. Mais j'ai tellement apprecie l'ambiance que j'ai decide de m'offrir un second stage. Et je n'ai pas ete decu. Je me suis retrouve dans un groupe fantastique et nous avons passe ensemble une merveilleuse semaine. J'essaie de mettre ca au propre sur ma page WEB mais ca prend un peu de temps... A bientot, Yannick

Appreciate the evaluation of the Nikon 8008/n90. In the market to upgrade from an older Nikon. Even starting to buy AF lenses for the future. Would like (means probably only can afford an 8008) but now not sure because of the review. Not sure AF is worth $400 to $500. Regards, A.

Excellent page with good attention to detail. Perhaps the addition of winter hiking experiences and such could provide a method of expansion. That is, if your site is not already too big. Just the opinion of a 28 year old winter nut who would rather freeze than attend college.

Your presentation on the Alps is outstanding and inspirational. I have climbed in the North Cascades for the last four years, and I am ready to broaden my horizons. We are thinking of going abroad, and are considering the Alps. Our trip would last two to three weeks, and we would like to tackle 2 or 3 moderate and classic climbs in the range. We are looking at the Rochefort Ridge/Dent du Gaent (spelling) in particular. Could you give me beta on that route, and maybe some info on other comparable routes. Thanks.

Liked your climbing slide shows a lot. Saw that you are into 3-D and wondered if you have any QTVRs or VRMLs of Yosemite. I'm working on a similar website with my own Yosemite pictures and would eventually like to put it all together into a virtual tour (in 3D) of Yosemite Valley. I would like to see what you are working on - perhaps we can exchange ideas and/or photos. Puntalejos

Brian Baker. Aloha, OR USA - Mon, May 20, 96 at 15:38:42

Tuan, I enjoy your adventures immensely. I am very interested in alpine climbing but do not know how to go about learning. I have taken a climbing course at a gym and read a lot about it. How do you guys manage time off from work to go on these adventures. Who has that much vacation. I'd love to do a himalayan peak but I'd most surely have to take leave from work. Probably not a good idea in today's job market. I'm very interested in your thoughts on how I can become an alpinist in a minimum amount of time without careless neglect. If you ever need an extra on a less demanding alpine ascent I'd be interested in doing it !!! Thanks for your input if you have the time. Regards, Ken Goold (919)231-4995 P.S. I am 35 yrs. old, 6'1", 185 lbs. and in pretty good shape.
Kenneth Goold. Raleigh, NC USA - Mon, May 20, 96 at 14:06:54

I browse through your pages and find that real interesting. As I am also a hiker and active shooter, your page give me new idea of landscape. I have too little chance to visit new place and as a result I limited my photography in Hong Kong. Not like you that have good chance in visit, I dream of. Some of pages do not have your Email contact button which may be less easy comment/chat. Read form your contact location page that you have changed login area, that might be problematic.. If you will come to Hong Kong in future, leave me a mail and I will buy you drinks. Of course I am the best photography guide in HK! Bye.

Great idea to share your experiences. I do something like you by means of slides in lectures. The difference is the quantity o people that can hear us and the much more experience of you in climbing. My experience is based in climbing in the Merida cordilllera (Bolivar, Humboldt peaks), colombian eastern range (pan de azucar, concavo, ritacuba) and in the Ecuador's volcanoes (Chimborazo, Cayambe, Pichinchas, Illiniza-sur).

I love the billboard that is running at the bottom of my screen. I think you should write a poem. It shouldn't keep repeating come on write me something. try a poem, no kidding. can you have variety? I am a large format person. I use the Polaroid 20x24 . I can't take it outside.cheers.

Salut Tuan, Compliments pour ton serveur. Ca fait plaisir de voir des photos de Chamonix ici a Berkeley. Je suis moi meme originaire de Chamonix, et j'effectue un stage de 3 mois (c'est court) a Berkeley dans le cadre de ma these. Apparement tu es un grimpeur. J'ai a peine repris la grimpe ici, il y a peu de temps. Dur, dur la reprise ! Je me suis inscrit dans un Gym d'Oakland ou il y a un chouette mur. Il faudra que je recherche le nom, je ne m'en souviens plus. Le pb, ce que je n'ai pas de caisse ici et que je cherche toujours qqn pour m'y emmener. Alors si jamais, tu es un familier de cet endoit, fait le savoir ! Pour ma part, rien d'original dans mon serveur: c'est juste pour apprendre a se servir des pages html... Mais j'espere arranger ca a mon retour en France, car j'ai un paquet de photos de montagne dans les plaquards. Talk to you soon, Laurent Blondaz.

Marc. Tilburg, Netherlands - Mon, May 06, 96 at 01:14:21

Your photographs are absolutely beautiful. I particular like the one of Dent de Geant. Thanks for making them available on the net. Is it possible for me to obtain a copy of the Dent de Geant photo in JPEG or Bitmap format (it would make an extraordinary wallpaper)? Who am I, you ask? A first year law school student who's trying to relieve the stress of finals by looing at nature photography. Hardly anything is as breathtaking to me as the site of mountains. Perhaps that comes from having been raised in the Great Plains (Oklahoma). Anyway, I'd better get back to studying now. Thanks again.

De très belles pages avec de magnifiques photos.
BELAT. ILLZACH, FRANCE - Thu, May 02, 96 at 07:47:07

Thanks Tuan for the great pics. I'm looking forward to start climbing myself. I am a professional photographer that recenlty moved into the digital world. Your images help pass the render hours which seem too short when looking at your images. Thanks.
Jerry Sells. Hollywood, Ca. USA - Thu, May 02, 96 at 04:23:24

Thanks for the fantastic views. It sure is the best way while waiting for a 2D motion track to render. Thanks

This is by far the most comprehensive page I have seen on climbing. The pictures taken upon the Yosemite walls give such a feeling of 'being there'!

Great site!

Nice photos. I'm a novice mountaineer (5.9, toughest multi-day climb was a slog up Rainier last summer) but I'm taking an intermediate climb to advance the skills. I'll be back to the site to check on the pics.

This is without a doubt the most interesting and useful page I've found on the web! You've done a great job. So far, I've looked into the Yosemite info. and loved it. Keep it up!

A man was just here at the computer lab where I work, and we were talking pages, and he wanted to show me the best personal page on the web. BUT, I had to help a patron and when I came back, he was gone, and your page was on my computer. So, I don't know his name, but he truly admires your page. Thought you should know. A.

Hey Hey Tuan, Remember me, I was around from 1989 to 1992. I remember well your stories of soloing Mnt Mckinley in 1992(?) Anyway, I am now in Boulder and have started up a new Chaos out of all those 20 and 30 year olds that have left the university for the real world but have not forgotten how to play. If you are ever in the Boulder Area, please give me a call 303-661-0384. You are always welcome to crash at my house. Great Page!!!

Wonderful photos! You've had some remarkable experiences. You visited our homeplage and inquired about scanning glass-mount scans. Are the scans for your web site? Please call me at 1-800-888-3686 so we can discuss the project. I'd be very happy to help you. Also I'd like to link to your page. May I? All Hail the Good Life!

Incredible picture...looks very cold at the Alaskan location. Go for the "adventure", and I'll be content to sit home and marvel at your accomplishments! Take care, enjoyed the visit! Caryll.

I have found some very good information here on these pages. I am thinking of buying a 4x5 LF. So all the info I can get is of great use to me. Thank you OLI

I'm in the process of upgrading to large format and surfing the net to obtain information may help my purpose. I will probably visit your site often.

Hi! Since I'v purchased FM2 I'm involved the "Nikon world". Actually, I'm not a pro. Even long-term amateur. Just beginner. That's all! Thanks for your activity! Be happy! Sincerely, Ilias.

Beautiful photos!!!!! I am just getting into mountaineering and your photos are giving me the itch to go and climb. Thanks!!!!
David Hagen. USA - Fri, Apr 19, 96 at 17:01:42

Wow. I am completely blown away by your site. (I saw you mention in the rec.climbing or backcountry, and decided to check it out.) I especially like your trip report of McKinley... I am thinking of trying it, perhaps in 2 years, with training and thinking from now til then. I also have to convince my wife to come with me. Right now we are just doing summer backpacking, with 1 or 2 trips in late winter/early spring. Anyhow, I have to get pack to all your great pictures. Thanks for making this beautiful site...

Merci pour le topo de glace des A.M., j'en avais entendu parler mais je n'arrivais pas a mettre la main dessus. ET un bon point pour les reportages photos, ça donne !
pierre Durin. Antibes, FRANCE - Fri, Apr 19, 96 at 04:32:10

Hey, Mightily impressed! Just spend the last hour surfing your stuff. I've climbed heaps in southern hemisphere locations (Australia & NZ etc) and I'm pretty into photography of these places... Haven't transferred any slides onto digital format yet so that's something to learn! I'll give you a sample when I get around to it. I've got some pretty good ones of Mount Cook and other NZ peaks. I'm planning a Chamonix trip so your stuff has been very helpful. Thanks Heaps Greg Brown

i realy enjoyed tour photos of the nose. i climbed the route myself with a partner in 1985, since then i climed humpty dumpty on the squmish chief. not as sustaned as the sheild, you have my envy.when i was on elcap three guys were doing the shield. we were at camp 4 and could see there rope and hear the epic begin.the belayer said no more rope,leader sead one more placement. well i guess you can understand our enjoyment that we were on a bigg ledge and listining to these guys argue. they finaly figured out what to do. and i got a great photo of there hall bag in space with the sun going down.forget there names but they had good laugh when we told them we could here the hole sean. anyway we had our own epic om the nose,ran out of water! herd that before.enjoyed yor photos.

Wonderful Pages and Photos!! As a novice rock climber your information is very interesting. Can you tell me who to contact in Yosemite Re; Climbing Classes for the beginner? I live close to the park (Visalia) and want to try my hand at climbing along with a friend that has climed before. Thanks
