Everest Nepal Basecamp. This is already 9 years ago, but it might give a clearer view of the disaster that happened last week.

You will need to see the original 400mp 360 Panorama for the details, but the destructive avalanche that killed several climbers came from the icefall on the 'V' shaped bit of the ridge leding right from PumoRi, the white peak on the right third of the image.

360degree Pano 3 rows of photos.

Who says you need a wide angle for landscape shots? This image of a partially burnt Araucaria forest near Villa Pehuenia in Northern Patagonia was shot handheld with @ 400mm focal length on a 7DII body, so effectively 640mm.
I love the ability of the long lens to separate a small part of the scenery from its surroundings.

Preparing for some more Patagonian photograpy, I edited last year's photo of El Chalten (the original name of Mt Fitzroy). We only saw the mountain just before it got engulfed by the clouds (minutes later). It would not reappear (and only briefly) until many days later.

Who is interested in a real Patagonian photo/travel adventure?

Just stumbled on this HDR photo in the archives. The mountain in the back is Ama Dablam; even though it is not the highest by far (it is less than 7000m), it is one of the most beautiful mountains on this planet. You can see one of the many small Nepali Sherpa hamlets, the Khumbu valley leading to Mount Everest on the right.

Northcol camp in September, Mount Everest. Those who complain about the crowds on Everest have never been there or are to lazy to go in quiet season. We were the only team on the mountain at this time of year :)

Look +Wray Post , it says I used a Nikon ;-)

It has been a long while since I shared some new photos here! I am currently redesigning a website and will surely encounter some images to be shared. Somehow it seems that my main album is not visible on my profile, at least I could not see it myself!

Can anybody else? Just in case, here are some past highlights :)

It's #womenwednesday ! I am re-editing some older pictures and wanted to share this one with you.

This little girl suddenly crossed our path when we were on our way to the wonderful Swayambunath temple complex in Kathmandu (mixed Buddhist & Hindu). There was a curfew due to the Maoist problems and the streets were empty. But this little girl did not mind politics, outdated idealism and human stupidity in general and was playing with her sister and brother.
She was interested and posed, though only for a split-second, but somehow I could not capture her innocence, cheerful expression and gorgeous eyes as I wanted. The next hours I had that familiar nagging feeling when you did not shoot that picture that you wanted to or could have…

Much later, we walked back and I went to look for her. I found her house, and she posed again, though she could barely stand still as she was full of energy, but I think I managed to get a little bit of her youth on ‘film’, before the ‘real world’ might take it away.

Visit Nepal if you can, the people are so wonderful and they need the tourism.

Laila Peak, Hushe Valley, Gilgit-Baltistan , Pakistan

Located at N 35° 35′ 28.4136″, W 76° 26′ 33.1008 in the Pakistan Karakoram range, Laila peak is 'only' 6096m/20,000ft high. But it is one of the most impressive mountains in the world, though seldomly climbed.
 It has a distinctive spear-like shape. Its northwest face has a slope of 45 degrees in more than 1500 vertical metres.

It has been climbed by Simon Yates, among others. According to the local people in Hushe, Laila peak has been climbed only twice, a total of only seven people have summited. It was climbed in winter for the first time last month by Spanish mountaineers Alex Txikon and José Fernandez, though they could not reach the actual summit.

Shot on slide in 2004, scanned in 2012.

It's #sciencesunday  ! To celebrate, here is another shot taken during my recent visit to the wonderful Capillas de Marmol (known as the Marble Caves, literally Chapels), eroded by the lake. So what is Marble and how is it created? WikiPedia knows:

"Marble is a rock resulting from metamorphism of sedimentary carbonate rocks, most commonly limestone or dolomite rock. Metamorphism causes variable recrystallization of the original carbonate mineral grains.

The resulting marble rock is typically composed of an interlocking mosaic of carbonate crystals. Primary sedimentary textures and structures of the original carbonate rock (protolith) have typically been modified or destroyed.

The resulting marble rock is typically composed of an interlocking mosaic of carbonate crystals. Primary sedimentary textures and structures of the original carbonate rock (protolith) have typically been modified or destroyed.

Pure white marble is the result of metamorphism of a very pure (silicate-poor) limestone or dolomite protolith. The characteristic swirls and veins of many colored marble varieties are usually due to various mineral impurities such as clay, silt, sand, iron oxides, or chert which were originally present as grains or layers in the limestone.

Green coloration is often due to serpentine resulting from originally high magnesium limestone or dolostone with silica impurities. These various impurities have been mobilized and recrystallized by the intense pressure and heat of the metamorphism."
