Chumey Valley Stormy Sunset, Bhutan

July 16th, 2014

Some more stormy moody skies from last years Bhutan Photography Tour, this time over the Chumey valley in Bumthang, Central Bhutan.  This is one of my favourite valleys in Bhutan, it is wild and open and the main road, which is the only road is a small winding one that is only 1 lane wide that meanders across the valley and then up through the passes.

I think this image is really defined by the sky and all the moody texture with sunbeams breaking through the clouds.  Imagine it with Blue cloudless skies… It really wouldn’t be a “keeper” at all like that would it?

Bhutan Photo Tours with Adam Monk

This was shot using the Hasselblad H4D-60 and the Hasselblad HC 100mm f2.2 lens.  I shot it with the panoramic crop in mind and simply cut off the top and bottom…  Having 60 megapixels to play with is very handy!

The “small” building on the ridge with the sunlight falling on it is actually one of the King’s Palaces.  This image looks fabulous blown up big and actually featured in an international exhibition on Bhutan in Copenhagen earlier this month, as did the one from the previous post.

My next Photo Tour to Bhutan will be leaving in April 2015, dates and costings are being finalised right now and details will be up soon
