Even though I did see a rainbow this week I didn’t had the patience to hold it for the skywatch. So for the Sky Watch I once again fall back on the Everest Base Camp pictures from Nepal. And I am already getting very restless for the next trip which unfortunately I have not planned.
Share your sky pictures on the Sky Watch page and have fun browsing through the collection.
There was a lot of drama in today’s sky but I driving back home at that time. By the time I reached home the skies were quieter. So I fall back on my trek pictures once again! I need not say which trek.
This is the majestic Ama Dablam as seen from Dingboche in Nepal. I was here as I was trekking up to the Everest Base Camp. The place is accessible by foot only. I remember asking my guide if the locals would prefer a road through the region. His response was that it would destroy the tourism in the region and hence the livelihoods.
I took this shot early in the morning and in spite of wearing a down jacket I was frozen solid after a while. But what beautiful days those were!
I have often said whatever little I know about photography, I have learned from Digital Photography School. So you can imagine my thrill when they featured my photography advice on a high altitude trek. No no you have to go to Digital Photography School Website to read how I managed to click a few decent pictures at that altitude!
I cannot tell you how thrilled I am for getting featured at DPS!
Talking about the Everest Base Camp Trek has become my default option. And a slide show of my Everest Base Camp pictures is now featuring on Yahoo! India Lifestyle. Check it out.
I still remember this day very clearly. This was the day when we were walking from Dingboche to Lobuje. I woke up around 5.00 am and I was looking out of the window. I could see beautiful pink clouds and at any other time I would have rushed out with my camera.
But at that high altitude my mind would not function in a normal way. It was after good 15-20 minutes of just staring out of the window it dawned on me that the sky was already changing colors and soon it would be too late. So out I went with my camera! I have to say my experience of doing photography at high altitude is quite different from doing it at normal heights. But I think that should be a matter for a separate post. That will give me another reason to talk about EBC!
