On Gokyo Ri, at

With the many things that I have to show from the Himalaya, I do not know if it makes sense to insist on an already presented subject (see N.25624). But I think that Gokyo Ri is an exceptional viewpoint, maybe even better than Kala Pattar, and this is why I remained on the top for more than two hours, waiting for the change of conditions from dawn light to full daylight. "More than two hours only to take photos" wondered our sherpa, whom we had left down playing cards with his fellows. He was once on the summit of Everest at sunrise, photographing the shadow of the mountain widely stretched over the Tibetan plateau. For him, maybe, a view like the present one is routine. For a Westerner like me - and a poor one in addition - it is far from routine.

The early morning view from Gokyo Ri was the first experiment with the manipulation of images from the Sony camera. At present, I am following the advice given to me by HJBay, to convert raw images to DNG in order to be able process them with Lightroom 5. I am not fully satisfied with this approach, due both to the conversion overhead and to the limitation to the Adobe color profile. So, I tried to install a trial version of Capture One, both 1) impressed by the Stockholm panorama by Christoph Seger and 2) considering that Sony cameras are sometimes sold together with the Sony-limited version of that program. However, to be honest, the installation of the program on my old Windows 7 has never proceeded too far - I guess that the trial period will time out without having ever succeeded in the installation!

Der Cholatse macht aus dieser Perspektive auch stets eine gute Figur - sehr schöne Ergänzung zum bereits gesehenen, Alberto !!!

Cheers, Hans-Jörg

HJBäu: den Cholatse habe ich aus weit besseren Perspektiven. Muss man aber Geduld haben...

Irres Hochgebirge!

Splendid view Alberto but you should complete with recording data...

Ist noch beeindruckender als die großartige Rundschau Nr. 25624 zum Sonnenaufgang. Aber es wäre überlegenswert, ob der Zuschnitt von Nr. 25624 hier nicht noch besser wirken würde - und der hier gewählte dort bei Nr. 25624.

A classic view in technical perfection. My father had a very old panorama from here - need to look up the details next time I'm there. Cheers, Martin
