Photographer's Note

I might be going one to far on my Cricket Theme -- my apologies .. it is a passion.

In late 2008 I was contacted by an enthusiastic and passionate young mountain climber and cricketer from London, who had this dream to play cricket at Base Camp Everest. Could I help?

This photo is the launch of their fund raising which was held on Trafalgar Square in front of the Worlds press.. a stunning moment where they attempted to reflect what it may be like if they played a game - AT THE HIGHEST LEVEL. The objective was to raise over 250 thousand pounds for the Lords Taverners trust..

These chaps eventually did go on to play the game at Base Camp Everest in May 2009.. An historic moment, including taking up the plastic cricket pitch to play on.. maybe I will bore you with one more image after this.. Have a look at the website for more info Everest Cricket

Hope you enjoy it.. It was a tremendous achievement by the chaps
