I love this thread. I stopped taking summit photos of my ugly, middle aged mug a few years ago. However, here is the worst one I could find in my archives. On the summit of Missouri Mountain in August 2009 with a giant mouthful of sandwich.

Here you go. My friend Eva in Nepal. Could have been one of the best pictures I have ever taken but we'll never know for sure since that camera has a really bad lens location for climbing. I got back and half my pics looked like this.

On the summit of Lindsay. I was dehydrated and confused and for some reason had various articles of clothing on my head.

I like to think my fingers aren't fat but that picture might say otherwise. OR the camera was not designed well. Either way you cut it, I blame el nino, aliens, George Bush, and Communism, but not me. Not my fault.

Relax.

Just retitle your picture, "Crushing Eva's Head" and all is well.

Either the summit of Sunshine or my bathroom after a long, steamy shower.
