Travel photographs

"All experience is an arch wherethrough
Gleams that untravelled world, whose margin fades
For ever and for ever when I move."
Alfred, Lord Tennyson

I may not be the best photographer in the world, but I've been lucky enough to travel through scenery so breathtaking that even a monkey would be able to take the odd amazing photo. So here's a selection of my (hopefully) slightly better than monkey-quality photographs.

Nepal - Everest Base Camp - April/May 2014. What began life as an attempt to climb 8516m Lhotse ended as an Everest Base Camp trek when a horrific avalanche in the Khumbu Icefall left 16 Sherpas dead. An ensuing labour dispute with the Nepal government led to the climbing season being abandoned.

Britain - Mardale, Mosedale and Swindale - May 2013. Backpacking weekend in the East Cumbrian Fells.
