South Col Expeditions recently conducted a trek cum photo workshop in the Annapurna Himalayas of Nepal. The senior most photographer of the team was Dhrubo Gupta, a fit and enthusiastic 75 year old trekker from Calcutta! Dhrubo's photograph of Annapurna South from Poon Hill recenly won the first prize in the DP review competition
( http://www.dpreview.com/challenges/Entry.aspx?ID=587613). In Dhrubo's own words: Annapurna Blushes: Mid-December
minus 9 Celsius dawn from Poon Hill at 3200 metres, after an hour’s climb in
the dark from Ghorapani at 2900 metres. It was a two days trek to Ghorapani and
at one stretch we had to climb over 3500 steps at one go – the trek was graded
"easy" but when you are pushing 75 it can be very tough !
Motto of the story: Trek with South Col Expeditions, win photo competitions!
Well done Dhrubo look forward to having you with us again!
