Beautiful Ed. Definitely an advantage to being up there in winter (not that summer isn't spectacular).

Maybe he did not have 45 MPH winds like we did.

Having calmer winds definitely helps, but when a lot of those pictures were taken winds were in the forties, if not higher... :-)

But on a more serious note... I can think of a couple of things that probably made a difference:

1) Having the right camera and lenses really helps. "Heavy" cameras and lenses are easier to hold steady.
2) I always try to brace my elbows against my body to steady the camera, and, if there is something physical to rest on/brace against, (especially if windy), I'll use that too. Crouching down, and resting your elbows on your thighs/knees can help too.

Thanks again to everyone for the comments/complements.
