This was a difficult one to shoot. I woke up at 1am in Ghorepani, a small town nestled on the outskirts of the Nepalese Himalayas. I checked the weather and was happy to see that the skies were clear. I hastily made the strenuous 1 hour hike up to the top of Poon Hill at over 10,000 feet. I set up my wide angle lens and framed the scene in the darkness. I was the only person on the mountain, alone in the middle of the night. I have plenty of experience shooting alone but when you are on top of a mountain in the middle of the night, sounds get heard that may not be there, and things get eerie. I put some music on and tried to forget about that, and instead focused on the magnificent scene before me. Soon I was relaxed and completely engrossed in the experience. My eyes fully adjusted to the starlight to such a degree that I could see dawn approaching hours before the sun actually crested the horizon. It was a magical night in one of the most stunning places on Earth – Nepal’s Himalayas.
