Himalayan Cloud Landscape in Bhutan

May 2nd, 2016

Something a little different here, shot from a high pass in the Himalayan mountains of Bhutan during a brief pause to change a flat tyre and admire the view… I think in the opposite order though, the tyre went flat after we stopped to admire the view.  Still, it gave us more time to watch the changing light and the clouds floating past below, bumping into the trees and high ridges.

Himalayan Cloud, Bhutan Photo tour with Adam monk

I used a 200mm tele to really isolate this small scene from the mountainous background.  The light was streaming down the valley and the cloud was strongly side lit giving it this magical luminous quality.  The mountains behind the cloud are just visible as the slanting diagonal lines in the background.

I’ve got just 4 places left on this years 15 day Bhutan Photo Tour, leaving October 3rd from Bangkok, we have managed to coincide with three cultural festival this year, something I have never managed before.

The above image was shot with the Nikon D810 and the Nikon 70-200 f4 lens, it’s had a little cropped off the top and bottom, but very little post processing.

WAPF Quairading Photography Weekend

June 1st, 2015
WAPF Quairading Photographic weekend

Last weekend, almost straight after returning from Bhutan, I went on a trip to the town of Quairading, in the wheat belt of WA with 60 other photographers… It was a weekend away organised by the WAPF, the West Australian Photographic Federation, and specifically by Ric & Ailsa McDonald from the GEM Camera Club.  I have been promising to go on one of their photographic weekends for years, but I always seem to be out of the country on an expedition of my own when the WAPF weekends come around.  Well finally I was around for one, so I went, jet lag and post Bhutan tour exhaustion and all!

After Returning from Bhutan

May 28th, 2015

I always go off on my Bhutan photo tours with the best intentions to write Blog entries as I travel with new images daily.  Occasionally it works out as planned and I put up the odd entry as I travel…  Not this time, not even one entry.  I think this was a result of pretty hopeless internet, and a tour group who were so enthusiastic to do and see everything that I was run ragged every day.  By the time we were finished for the evening it was all I could do to drag myself to bed!

I also embarrassed to say that I have barely looked at my images from that trip, again as a result of too little time, or at least the desire to sleep during whatever time I had.Photo Tour of Bhutan

This image is of two of my Bhutanese guides, Tshering (on the right) and Kezang, having a laugh with some local kids at the festival in Ura Valley, it’s a candid shot facing away from the action of the dancers at the festival.  Shot on a Nikon D810 and the 24-70mm f2.8 lens
