Photo Of The Day – Climbers Before The Mountain


Title: Climbers Before The Mountain

Location: Kyajo Ri Valley, Solukhumbu, Nepal

Shutter Speed 1/640
Aperture f/9.0

Lens Canon 28-300mm L

Description:  I shot this mountain and climber scene intentionally dark and then moved things a bit in Photoshop.  Using the camera’s settings, with the way the light was hitting the mountain, gave too light of a picture, because it tried to bring in some of the foreground.  I wanted pure silhouette and went darker.
