This photograph was taken by Stefen Chow at 14,000 ft (4,267 m) on Denali (the native name of Mount McKinley), which is the highest mountain peak in North America, with a summit elevation of 20,237 feet (6,168 m) above sea level.
Stefen Chow made it up to the summit with almost 60 kg of gear, 18 of which was pure camera. The image was made when the weather on Denali was turning for the worse, which has a notorious record of severe snow storms and conditions colder than Everest. Chow, an editorial and commercial photographer between Beijing and Singapore, is also a mountaineer with extensive experience climbing in the Himalayas including summitting Mount Everest back in 2005.
