Tell us the story behind your photo:
On my Silver Duke of Edinburgh's Award tramp, the first day was very tough, we had to traverse some very difficult terrain and gain a lot of meters (1200 m) - over 8km. We only managed to reach camp at 8:00 pm. After a rough night of sleeping, we walked for a further 2 and a half hours to reach the summit of (1685 m). I took this photo just as I summited, exhausted from the previous day and a half. The breath-taking view revived the whole group, we all were struck back by how far we had come and what we had achieved in such little time. The photo symbolised a special time in our journey, a turning point that propelled us forward to continue the next 2 days of the tramp.
