I am now finally back in Dubai after spending 3 weeks exploring Pakistan at the invitation of IESS. If you’ve been following my trip on Instagram, you have already seen quite a few photographs I was posting while there, but now it’s time to sort out all the images and start blogging a few here where you can see them a bit larger.
My main focus in terms of photography was Northern Pakistan with its amazing mountain peaks and the famous Hunza Valley. This sort of trip is definitely not for everyone as the long hours on buses will get to you after a while. But the reward for all that traveling are views like the one above – this is Nanga Parbat, the 9th tallest peak in the world, translated as Naked Mountain. Although at 8126 meters it’s just the 9th tallest peak, it’s also one of the more deadly ones, being nicknamed Killer Mountain.
The photograph above is actually a huge panorama which I can’t wait to print – it was made out of 13 vertical photographs and it’s about 25000 pixels wide. We were pretty lucky this particular early morning having the entire mountain completely clear of any clouds.
