Just a quick note to let you know that this month wallpaper is now online. I received a request for it to be the image Ama Dablam Dreamer from the Khumbu Select gallery, so there you go. As usual, it is available in three high resolutions in the Wallpapers section.
I finally came back to Denmark two days ago, after an epic 25h of international travel which almost saw me denied boarding in Heathrow because the airline clerk thought I was about to collapse on the spot and wasn’t medically fit to fly… Along with me traveled 5800-odd photos, and I spent much of the past couple of days sorting through them and trying to get a better idea of what, exactly, I had brought back.
It will of course take months to process even just the best ones, especially with so many panoramas, stitched images and a few HDRs, all of which are extremely time-consuming. That said, I needed to make a first selection for Jagged Globe to consider using in their various brochures, and I have put the best bits of that selection online for all to enjoy. It is biased toward people/action pictures, with almost no landscapes (and boy, do I have some good landscapes waiting!) but it should at least give an idea of what the trip looked like. Without further ado, go take a look at the 19 photos of the gallery Khumbu Select.
As a reminder, even though I will post blog/news items whenever a big batch of photos are added to this website, you can also follow the daily trickle of photos on my photoblog, Aperture First. I expect it will be more or less pure Nepal for the months to come.
This is huge news for me: Climbing magazine, the most widely circulated US climbing magazine, has used my photo “Summit Mushroom” on the cover of their November issue, currently on the newsstands. There are also two double page spreads throughout the issue.
In other news, I am back in Kathmandu after three wonderful and very productive weeks of trekking and easy climbing in the Khumbu. I will start publishing images from the trip as soon as I fly back home, in a couple of days, so stay tuned!
