    Damn! Check out the lady in #3 carrying all the backbacks. I thought my computer napsack was heavy!

    Interesting shots- they show alot of the character of the area.

    Beautiful shots. I love the 3rd one the best... I love her expression and the colors. It looks like you had a pretty bright light. I'll be so glad when I learn my camera and know how to get shots like this.

    Also, these photos make me appreciate what I have. I forget that women around the world have hard lives like this. Just love these shots.

    Can I ask what your settings were?


    Thanks, Cheri

    Happy Shooting, Cheri

    Just beautiful shots. I visited Nepal eight years ago and trekked through the mountains. These women carrying the heavy loads can be as young as eleven or twelve. They often break rocks and carry them back down the mountains. The colours are wonderful, makes me want to go back




    Cheers Grace
