    I spent three months in Nepal, walking in the shadows of Annapurna and Everest, relishing the feeling of isolation. I had never in my life felt so detached from the rest of the world…the mountains were a physical barrier to the rest of reality.

    These pictures were challenging to take for several reasons. I was carrying my clothing and food for trip so wanted to cut down on heavy camera equipment where possible. Taking off my pack was awkward, so I was reluctant to remove it when taking a picture. Finally, the altitude was a constant factor in the background, leaving you breathless and light headed at times.

    That said, the photography opportunities in the area are incredible and I would recommend these journeys to anyone.
