Click to preview The Snows of Kilimanjaro photo book

In 2007 a friend and I, two ladies in their fourties, with the help of two guides and seven porters set out to climb the highest mountain in Africa, Kilimanjaro. The book is a collection of images gathered during those seven days. It is also an account of the preparations and describes the adventures of each day, the progress along the route and the successes and disappointments of the journey.


About the Author

Pia Thommes
Pianna Macclesfield, United Kingdom
I was born 1960 in Idar-Oberstein, Germany, grew up near Cologne, lived in Southern Germany and Switzerland and moved to London in 1991, initially for 2 years only. Currently I live in Macclesfield, Cheshire. I’m a biologist and my interest in photography started as a student, when I was participating in field trips all around the Mediterranean. Initially I used a whole range of Minolta cameras, but changed over to Nikon and now own a range of digitial cameras. My main focus of photography has shifted somewhat from plants to landscape, but I still like travelling a lot and do it extensively. I try to get a trip to Africa once a year, so I can take wildlife photographs, although found on the last one, that there are not many elephants on Kilimanjaro. Over the last years I’ve also toured through North America, Hawaii, Australia and New Zealand and took the odd European trip. Having moved home to the north of England I spend weekends roaming the Peak District or Yorkshire Dales.

Okay I loved your story, how adventurous you are. I love the photo on page 5. The biggest adventure I ever took on was Ziplining across Arenal Lake in Costa Rica.
Take a look at my books too: A Cat Abroad on the Streets of Heidelberg, and in Pets But I thought I was mommy's baby and Feline Fractals Fantasy. Let me know what you think of them and vote if you like them.
