For the Malchin, see N. 8227, where I explain the story by which I touched this summit six times. This picture belongs to the first of the six, and is taken in the late afternoon.
The 15 shots come from the Canon Powershot G9. Namely, the reflex was left at the camp, since I had set off under a light rain, and without any hope to see some blue before night - let alone to enjoy the summit in this particular light.
The sun has not made me a good service in its own frame, with that dull, rounded halo - but one cannot ask too much, and actually, given the day, it was generous enough from him to show up...
Panoramio version:

Splendid! Looking at the moraine I should say that glaciers in the Altai mountains are receding too.

Davvero spettacolare questa panoramica, la luce e sopratutto questo incredibile ghiacciaio.
cari saluti Patrick!

What a great wilde place and view! This wonderful panorama gives me sense of complete freedom also due to the warm colors of the late afternoon. Your effort was reward!

Yes, perhaps with right you speak of a sense of freedom. Personally, the moment when I felt this in full strength was while shooting the nearby N.9762, where in the far SW I can even imagine you climbing meanwhile in the Tien Shan...
It is funny when I think that the far Malchin is the 4000m mountain that I summited more times - five, with the silver medal Gran Paradiso "stuck" only at three!
Please do not draw the attention of serious and thoughtful mountaineers to any of these panoramas: the one from Malchin is shot at 6 pm, the one from Nairamdal at 4.30 pm, both times in total loneliness!!
