Photo Of The Day – The Town of Dole In Front Of Kangtega

Title: The Town of Dole In Front Of Kangtega

Location: Dole, Nepal, Asia

Description: Dole (pronounced Dole-Lay) is like a lot of Himalayan villages: Just a short strip of teahouses and regular homes along the trail, with maybe a larger teahouse just off to the side. It’s a perfect spot to stop between Namche Bazaar and the higher up communities of Machermo and Gokyo.

Kangtega is shaped like a saddle and towers over 22,251′ (6,782m). The area is far away from any substantial lights at night and makes for excellent start photography.

Lens: Canon 28-300mm L
ISO: 100
Focal Length: 40mm
Aperture: f/8
Shutter Speed: 1/320
Altitude: 13,259′

I’m excited to be heading to Central America to teach photography in November and December of 2017 in Costa Rica and Panama. One trip is from Costa Rica to Panama, including a transit of the Panama Canal and a number of National Parks and islands, while the other is the same itinerary in reverse.

I’d love to see you on either trip and you can save $200/cabin by using code CH2U117 when booking either of those Costa Rica/Panama itineraries. Click here or email me for more details.
