Nepal 2008- kathmandu and Mustang Trek

July 29, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

These images are the second part of those taken is Asia in 2008 (along with India/Varanassi), this time in Kathmandu and on a Trek into the "Lost Kingdom of Mustang." Mustang was one of the last Nepalese kingdom to be opened to westerners, though its since become a massively popular tourist destination. Looking back at my originals for this trip, I can only say I've learned a lot since 2008! For starters, I shot JPEG in those days (I'm sure I'd never heard of raw files.) As a result, you kinda get what you have, with no real way to correct any errors in exposure, etc. And second, there were a lot basic photo errors, like shooting high ISO in bright sun- a lot of blown out skies. These were taken with an early generation Canon Rebel digital camera, and it seems to me that the dynamic range of the sensors in those days wasn't nearly what we have today.  In any case, Mustang itself is astounding and its ancient capital of Lo Manthang is a true medieval walled city having been founded in 1380. Well worth the walk....
