Thanks for the kind comments, Scott. The trip was one of the best of my life!
Very interesting and informative, great to see this kind of stuff here. Thanks for taking the time to put it all together.
Thanks for the words of encouragement! I liked your profile picture.
foto-journey to the roof of the world. I notice a few of your
awesome fotos have a "black sky" effect. Is that something you
performed (edited) afterwards in Photolab, OR is it a natural
scene??? It looks cool! Congratulations on your informative page!
Thanks for the kind words regarding my pictures! There are a couple things that couse the black sky effect, first that the sky gets a deeper blue color at high elevation than at sea level, second that the camera lets a certain amount of light in to properly expose the film. When taking a picture of a very bright subject such as snow, the sky gets underexposed as a result making it appear blacker than in real life. In terms of the pictures, they were slides that I then scanned. The only thing that I did to the images after scanning them was to take out marks from dust that was on the image when it was scanned and to reduce the resolution of the picture somewhat so that the file size was more reasonable.
That's all I can think of.
Thanks! I loved your lone posted photo as well. Where was it taken?
Makes me accelarate my plans for Himlung next year ;-)
Thanks. I enjoyed looking at your pictures. You have some great ones!
I hope to one day have the oppurtunity to see things like that; and the skill to capture them so beautifully.
Thank you for your remarks! It's easy to come away with beautiful pictures when you are in a place as wonderful as Nepal, and the people there are as nice as anywhere that I've been. I hope that you get there someday!
I trekked the Everest trail and the views of Cholatse had only one competition, Ama Dablam. However, I know that climbing Cholatse is by far more challenging than Ama Dablam. Great set of photos, and TR,
Thanks for the kind words! It was a wonderful trip in a beautiful place. I'd have to add to you list, though. Thamserku (my spelling might be off) was one of the most spectacular mountains that I've ever seen as well...
What dreams are made of. Excellent Photographs of an amazing rock! I would climb that over Everest any day (given I had the skill and fitness level)!!!!!
Thanks for the comments, it was a wonderful trip! The peak is currently a treking peak so logistically it is not all that difficult to go there...
