I love Nepal

One of the most amazing places in the world I had the privilege to spend time in has been Nepal. Nepal’s nature, culture and people have left a lasting mark on me.

It saddens me greatly that the 7.8 magnitude earthquake which struck on April 25th destroyed many of the cultural sights in the capital. Many of the places I have visited and wished to have had another chance to photograph are gone forever.  I’m glad to say that all my friends in Nepal are safe and have not been hurt by the quake.

Below are some images from the Khumbu region of the country:

Kathmandu is a very vibrant city that is a visual overload for photographers. Below are some images from my brief stay in the area after returning from the mountains.

I’m sure this panorama of the city has been changed forever after the earthquake.
