Chased by the clouds

Tal, my Israeli companion, is camouflaged among the rocks, centre left, hauling his ludicrously heavy pack up towards the 5000-metre Calzado Pass (I deviously engineered it so he carried the tent).

This was a long hard slow day, accelerated by the clouds which you can see in the valley, chasing us up from the Amazon basin and threatening to overwhelm us before nightfall.
