First and second been on my bucket list for the longest time. Havent had a proper chance to PP the second one, but still like it with sliders adjustments. As for the last one, I just like the grand reflection.

Hell of a trio! I hope to get more landscapes this year, but need to wake up early more often to do so...

That last one needs to be a 60" print on a wall...

Here are 3 taken in my hometown over the past year. The first, was taken a few weeks ago during a rare snow event in Baton Rouge. The next two were taken at a neighborhood Mardi Gras parade in March. The black and white was taken with my A7II and Voigtlander 15/4.5 and the last two with A7II and Canon FD 50/1.4 on TAP.

It wasn't the greatest year for photography, but a good one for memories of which these are three of the best.

Impossible to select since I've had a busy year trekking/hiking in some awesome locations (e.g. Nepal, Norway, Tibetan Plateau, Morocco, China etc.) so there are a lot of shots that mean something special to me personally.

Here are some from each of those :

Nepal : Gokyo Lakes. On the long climb up to the awesome Renjo Pass at 5,800m. Everest is the one left with the snow plume and the Ngozumpa glacier (the longest in the Himalayas at 36kms) can be seen between the mountains and the lake.

Fantastic images from some amazing adventures. The Himalayas fascinate me but I doubt I'll ever get the chance of going, so thanks for sharing these. I've never been to altitude such as that, must take some getting used to.

Love 'The Chasm', so subtle in tonality and colour. The wide view and peering through the gaps in the rock to see the water gushing below, could look at this picture every day and spot something new

Thanks John !

Until a few years back I didn't think I was 'one of those types' either (although I've always enjoyed 'outdoor' activities, camping etc.). But I was packing on the weight from a sedentary lifestyle and decided to do something about it, hiking and dieting, and since then I've lost 34 kgs and I'm back to the near perfect weight I was 20 years ago. Much of that weight loss is attributable to hiking (I find I lose between 4 and 6 kgs on each long trip). I'm 59 yrs old now and it has reinvigorated my zest for life, for adventure and for my photography too.

I would say that trekking in Nepal can be extremely cost effective nd your return plane ticket is going to be far and away the most expensive part of the trip. After that hotel sin Kathmandu can start at $8 (I've tried one ot two - they are acceptable and inc. breakfast) ! Though $20 gives you a nice place. About the same for the tea-houses (I'd need to check my records to be exact). Food is cheap and so are the guides/porters (I pay ca. $15-20 for a guide and $12=15 for a porter. You can split the costs with a hiking partner - easy to find - and of course not always need one or either but it's good to contribute to the local economy).

High altitude affects people in different ways and should not be taken likely. I spoke to the doctors at a British charity clinic established at around 4,300m in Nepal, mainly for porters who suffer greatly and have no resource to medicine (cost) or facilities (none at those altitudes). Basically they said hikers die every year at those altitudes either because they are naive and didn't research the symptoms and effects of altitude, or they ignore the symptoms until they become too severe and it's often too late. All I can say is do your research and buy the meds just in case (they are very cheap to buy in Nepal and you don't need a prescription). Himalayan Rescue is a good site whose advice I adhere to.
I do suffer but mildly compared to some (at least not yet, it can affect you differently on each trip and age, sex, experience aren't factors), I don't suffer headaches but insomnia is bad and appetite loss quite substantial too (just need to force yourself to eat).

For anyone interested please read the advice given here : http://himalayanrescue.org/altitudes-sickness.html

My 1975 BMW 2002 runs again after a 15 years slumber


To me the most beautiful BMW ever. I loved the huge windows, and it was prestige already at its time. But even with huge stones in the trunk, it was a nightmare in Alpine winter.

I agree, but along with the 3.0 CSi, another truly beautiful car. And yes, the 2002 was miserable in snow. Fortunately now it only comes out on sunny days!

Here's my three, there's maybe some shots of my daughter I'd chose but that's more about parental pride than photography.

Yes, I forgot the 3.0 CSi, beautiful car, but out of financial reach of almost any German.
