Images from Nepal
Does anything specific come to mind when you think of Nepal? What images does it conjure up? Perhaps one of the birth places of Buddhism...or the top of the world where thousands of people travel to get near or climb Mount Everest? The Northern part of Mount Everest is in Tibet while the souther part is in Nepal. The Nepalese name for Mount Everest is Sagarmatha which means 'Mother of the Universe'.
Read about the journey on my blog
I started a new blog at the beginning of this journey at: http://wolfphotograpy.blogspot.com/. I wanted to write in the moment or as near as possible about my feelings on parts of the journey. Please feel free to go and have a look or follow the blog by logging in to or creating a free blogger account. It came in useful for venting some of my emotions about some of the things that I was seeing. You'll need to scroll down to the bottom and click on older posts and go back to 02 Oct 09 to see the relevant entries or just click here: http://wolfphotograpy.blogspot.com/2009_10_01_archive.html.
Viewing the images from Nepal
Come and journey with me now and view beautiful landscapes and beautiful people. A life that, while seeming basic and even primitive to us, seems a happier one as you mingle amongst the people and places of Nepal. There are 5 albums:
Kathmandu explores the area as well as various Buddhist and Hindu temples of in the region.
Kathmandu to Pokhara. Pokhara is an area of great beauty, you'll see images of cascading rice paddies and the people working them, as well as other forms of industry in the area.
Lukla to Namche Bazaar. This album contains images of local people and some of the stunning scenery along the gruelling trek from Lukla (which houses the highest commercial airport in the area) to Namche Bazaar (which tends to be the starting point of all the treks further afield including Mount Everest).
Namche Bazaar to Shyangboche - Mount Everest Region. Shyangboche is the first location for some decent mountain photography of Mount Everest and the surrounding peaks. You can see Everest from one other area on your way to Namche Bazaar but you need to get to this location for any semi decent images.
Views from Sarangkot. If you journey to Pokhara I strongly recommend spending a week in the area. Sarngkot is very popular and there can easily be 200 plus people in the viewing place waiting for the first rays of the sun to touch the Annapurna mountain range. You need to get there very early to get your tripod setup!
I hope you enjoy viewing the images. They are available for sale directly off the website. The purchasing options are above the images: A4 size unmounted = £12.99, A3 size unmounted = £22.99 and 36inch x 24 inch framed canvas = £89.99. Delivery to UK addresses is free. If you would like a print delivered to a country outside of the UK, please email me first at firstname.lastname@example.org so that I can find the cheapest way of getting the print to you.
Please pass this newsletter on to others that you think might be interested.
all the best
