On the way back down Mount Everest
Ciprian "Chip" Popoviciu stops on the mountain slope at a place called "the balcony" for a picture after summiting Mount Everest. He wears an oxygen mask to help him breathe. The air is very thin at high altitudes. It is a calm, sunny day so his blue and black down suit is unzipped and he is wearing only liner gloves, not the heavy mitts he wore through the night as he climbed to the summit. Behind him, other peaks of the Himalayan Mountains can be seen.
