A77 & a trip to Nepal

I was recently fortunate to enjoy a trip trekking in the Everest region of Nepal, thought I would share a few images taken with my A77 and the CZ 16-80. Didn't take any other lenses so as to keep the weight down and frankly didn't feel the need for anything else.

The GPS feature has proved to be invaluable (particulalry when used in Lightroom), it is the first time I have used it and the way it has helped with identifying mountains etc has been great.

If your interested in looking at more then here is a link to my flikr collection

Awesome. This is a place I shall never see, and I wish I'd had the chance when I was younger.  If I do get on the plane I'm the guy they take on first and get off last.

Other than images, what were your impressions, how would you describe your experiences, and what would you share?

Perhaps you have a blog, I'd be interested in reading about this trip.

I had 4 trips today, and never broke my camera.  I'm staying in a chair for a while!

The man who would be king, with Sean Connery had some gripping scenes of Nepal.  (Maybe it was just hollywood, who knows?  LOL)

Hi John,

Going to see Everest was a dream and has been for a very long time, my 50th birthday provided an excuse that my partner was happy to go along with, without her support it would not have been possible.

I spent around 5 days in Kathmandhu and 18 days in the mountains, both parts provide a stark contrast. Kathmandhu is a busy, largely poor city but rich in culture, history and wonderful people. The mountains provide clean air and just incredible scenery. The stand out moments were of course the scenery, the basic living, the people, getting away from the 'rat race' and relaxing.

I did keep a blog going on www.dsnepal.wordpress.com . It is in need of 'cleaning up'; it was written on a small mobile phone so has spelling mistakes, I will also be expanding on my original ramblings in the New Year.

Never seen The man who would be King - must check it out.

Regards
