photoblog image The Nepal Collection: Mt. Everest

The Nepal Collection: Mt. Everest

I'm in the process of scanning and re-touching some of my photos of Nepal from my trip there in 2000 for a fundraiser an acquaintance of mine is hosting. He asked if I'd submit some photography for it and since it is to raise funds for various efforts within Nepal I figured photos from that collection would be appropriate. There is much work to be done yet but as I prepare them I'll post them on the blog. I'm especially attached to these images so forgive the watermarks!

PP included some curves work, a desaturation of the blue channel and a boost to the red, slight diffusion.

brilliant photo. i cannot express my fascination with everest, and therefore, i am instantly in love with this photo. i absolutely love the way you framed everest against the sky. the blowing snow simply adds to the mystery and allure.
Iain Myrans: Thanks Nicole, I appreciate the comment! I have to be honest. It looks much bigger when you're there. Photographs simply can not capture the size of the mountains in the Himalayas. I will post a few more from this set over the next week in between my regular posts. Do check back smile

Wow! That looks impossible to survive, much less climb. The elements in the shot work great together. Well done!
Iain Myrans: I will be honest with you Denosha, I was limited in terms of shooting angles wink I took this from the top of a small mountain (Mt. Khaliphattar) which stands somewhere between 20,000 and 21,000 feet if I recall. I was in Nepal for about 6 weeks volunteering but to acclimatize before we started our work they took us up nice and high so that when we went back down to work between 12,000 and 14,000 we'd not collapse from exertion in the thin air.
It's tough enough trying to survive the climb. To return with wonderful shots like these is truly cherry atop the cake. Goodluck on the fundraising event!

Wow.. look so majestic.. and clean (read an article recently about the terrible amounts of rubbish dumped on by people climbing up the mountain).

Oh that is just magnificent! I get bored very easily by pics of mountains, but this has a cool, serene, blue clarity which brings over the "roof of the world" feeling more impressively. I love it!
Iain Myrans: I spent quite a bit of time debating the blue. It was more saturated before and I wasn't sure what people would think. This is certainly more realistic relative to the human eye than the original neg was (it had a blue cast to it since there was a lot of blue reflecting from the sky in the snow, etc. Thanks for the comment smile
Wow! Very cool. I've only ever been that high up in an airplane. I have climed Mt. Fuji (that's a story worth hearing) but really that's more of a hike than a climb. Did I fantastic shot yet? No? well here it is Fantastic Shot.
Iain Myrans: but... but... but... Where's the 3's? No little three critique today? I'm so sad! ;(
Ah yes the threes. Now that I look I do see three mountains; the one on which you are standing, a larger one and finally a very large. So that is one set of threes, then there is the three sizes small, medium and large. Or in this case tall, venti and grande. This not really a picture of mountains at all but rather a commentary on elitist nature of Starbucks coffee. The grande-skim-no-whipped mocha with a splash of caramel has become the status symbol of western culture. We must fight the establishment, drink your coffee black (or maybe with a little cream and sugar) VIVA LA REVOLUCION!!!!!!!
Iain Myrans: Wow.. you're good. that's just what I was thinking when I took it wink
That's a stunning shot. I can hardly grasp the proportions -- I wonder how many miles away Everest was from you. I love that you captured a snowsquall on the side.
