Landscapes Himalayas: Annapurna South and Huinchuli

Images Himalayas: Everest Trek

This photograph was taken at around 11.30 am in the morning at Chukung in the Imja valley below the peak of Ama Dablam in the month of October. It gives an idea of how cold it can be in the bright sunshine! More than the cold I think it is the wind  and my friend Sitha is well protected against the chilling gales blowing off the Lhotse face!

Nikon 70-300 VR: The Common Flameback Woodpecker

I just got the Nikon 70-300 VR and was happily testing it when a Common Flameback Woodpecker perched itself on a tree behind our house. Instinctively I set the lens to 300 mm and took two shots before it flew away again! It is surprising that in the heart of Kolkata you can still see woodpeckers! The lens seems to be a good one!
