There were much lighter lens choices available (to be sure!), but we had gloriously bright sunshine to work with, and I wanted the extreme reach this zoom would provide me. It was awesome getting in nice and tight on these climbers. Plus, dragging the big Sigma around helped keep me warm in the crisp -25C air. Not warm enough, as I suffered serious frostbite on my nose from having it pressed into the back of my frozen camera for so long.

Most images were taken between 400-600mm, f/8, 1/1250, ISO 400
