    Wow! Sweet! Matt, do you use an ND filter on this in the daytime?

    To the Hotels of Kathmundu, Nepal..


    Towards 8848 meters from base to summit...to Sagarmata .. known to outsiders as
    the Everest...


    Why? because it is there; why,, because we are still alive; why
    because a gauntlet was thrown..

    Why? because a grandmother picked up the gauntlet

    Why? because through here lies Shangri La.
    Bravo!

    Steve: Thanks. I liked that one also. Serendipitous. She just started running to get out of the rain. It felt like a B&W shot at the time. Also, that lens is quite nice (and a bargain by Leica prices).

    Steve: Thanks. No ND filter. I don't even own one. However, the EXIF data may be wrong with the M8.

    So many astonishing images here!! I don't want to leave anyone out, and I've not seen anything that was not worthy of sincere admiration. The talent here is awe inspiring!! Thank you all for sharing.

    Rayyan: Thank you. Weather on that day would have met almost everyone's taste (although it wasn't warm). My first camera was a brownie, then an Agfa, then a Nikkormat. During college, I shot an incredible amount of B&W, developed it and printed it. After viewing, and participating, in this forum, I'm getting my love of B&W back.

    Re: The All New More and More Fun With Digital M Images

    Taking some time this evening to browse through this prolific forum and getting lots of inspiration and ideas from some wonderful images here!!. I have another week in the Colorado high country spring before I head back to Houston, and thought I'd include a couple of images I've taken in the last few days. Partially thawed Lake Dillon with my 35 cron and A Basin Mountains (still with lots of snow) with my 75 cron.

    rayyan: It's a wonderful serial! Beautiful photos. I especially like the last two. The prayer flags framing the peak, and the bit of sun flare, are great. Your wife (i'm assuming?) looks like the consummate climber/trekker. I envy you both your experiences. Looking forward to the next installment.

    Cheers, Matt

    Re: The All New More and More Fun With Digital M Images

    So much good stuff
    Rayvan - your life enhancing Himalayan pics
    Matt - the stalls with your new 21
    Stef - love the party pics - great retro feel to them
    Daniel - fabulous wide angle shot
    Eleanor - that looks like one chilly lake
    Jaap - the panoramic stitch is great - interesting that you used the 50 in landscape mode - I've been using a 35 in portrait mode for mountain stitches.
    Everyone who I've forgotten - sorry, it doesn't mean the pictures weren't inspiring!

    We're in Cornwall for a week . . . I'm supposed to be working hard on a project, but we do get out now and then - the first one was with the 50 'lux in an old barn in the yard - the second one with the 75 'cron asph at Gwynvor.

    Re: The All New More and More Fun With Digital M Images

    During our trip in the Himalyas, there was a gnawing feeling that I had
    seen all this before...different but more same in more ways..

    In our stay with the Inuits in the Canadian North or my treks across the desert.

    During our journey in the Scandinavian Arctic ( maybe another series ),
    we had done the same things..

    Come a long way..to the land of the Vikings..


    Said our prayers..


    And I had watched my wife go in search of Valhalla..


    Many things were different, of course. But there were much much more similar. It was the same feeling when we were with the Inuits in the
    Canadian North and when we were alone in the vastness of our Desert.

    Why? What was it? I think I found the answer much later on!

    Thanks for looking.

    Jono, nice curly ferns. Certainly have a spring in them.

    Fancy some Crabs?

    On the way to Shangri La..#4

    Please allow me to write a little more than usual. In this post I want to
    mention something which is very dear to me. I also believe it represents
    the sum total of our short journey.

    Who reached the summit of Everest..first..second..tenth? Who is the first..always? It is unfortunate that most answers are wrong.

    The first person to reach the summit of everest is invariably a Sherpa. The
    brave, noble and unsung heroes that make it all possible.

    The final ascent to the summit is made in the dead of night. For various reasons..not the least being the time to make the final assault and the
    weather approaching the summit as the sun rises. Depending on the attack face.

    But..the final ascent is prepared by the Sherpas..let me repeat this; by the
    Sherpas. The stakes are hammered in the ice and rock. A step is taken,
    another stake another step..All along a ladder is strung for the climber/s
    to ascend. The perilous preparations are done ...by the Sherpas.

    Then they step aside., holding the ladder against the dreaded and fatal wind shear.
    Their job is done, for now. The climber takes the
    steps and reaches the summit. The world press reports this with
    pictures.

    My salute and an insignificant tribute to those that make it all possible.
    the Sherpas..we search for Shangri La..The Sherpas live it!


    These were ours. They deserve all tribute, praise and acknowledgement.

    Thanks for your time.

    Many things were different, of course. But there were much much more similar. It was the same feeling when we were with the Inuits in the

    Why? What was it? I think I found the answer much later on!

    Thanks for looking.
    Amazing images, and a more amazing story. I'm very much looking forward to each installment. An most of all, I'm looking forward to "the answer".

    The Sherpas are without a doubt the unsung heroes! Agree with Lloyd. Thank You Rayyan.

    rayyan: Excellent photo and commentary. Occasionally, a climber will acknowledge sherpas, pack mules, helicopter, etc. that got them "close" to the summit; but, you're right, it doesn't make good copy. Then there's the photographers who record the climber's ascent (from above!). Some of these expeditions look more like an invasion. But, there are still those who respect the mountains, and come and go lightly. Too often these days, especially at the big name mountains, it's the former.

    Cheers, Matt
