This video was shot within the past few weeks and shows a fairly minor avalanche on Everest. While the clip is only 20 seconds in length, the thing that strikes me the most while watching it is the sense of scale. With a couple of climbers marching across the landscape as a reference point, viewers can see just how massive the area is and how big the avalanche is as well. The video provides a nice sense of proportion and lets us know just how small we truly are.
