Today is cold and gloomily overcast, the wind squeezing through the smallest opening, the clouds drizzling sporadically…. at a loose end ….browsing through my photos…
Palms growing on the edge of Sekonyer river….
What an amazing plant this is….the pitcher plant – a small nest of them deep in the rainforest.
A domestic duck enjoying the afternoon sun
And a happy cat…. for thoe of us who are fond of cats and who acknowledge the dilemmas in doing so…
Gorgeous floating butterflies that refused to settle …..ahhhh!
All of these photos were taken somewhere along the sekonyer river in kalimantan.
My brother and I both have a love of mountains. The Himalaya would have to be one of the wonders of our planet. We spent a few weeks walking thru the kali gandaki valley which is said to be one of the deepest valleys on earth. Not difficult to imagine.
Taken fromjust outside of Pokhhara
From Pokhara we flew to Jomsom and from there we walked up towards the tibetan plateau….spectacular country
View looking up into a side valley heading north from Jomsom…..awesome
Heading down the valley early one morning….
Such a timeless amazing place….even now looking at these photos …the mountains feel almost sentient..
And those that live there…. taken in a small village off the track ..
The backdrop ..the foothills of Dalhagiri and a small glacier rushing down a side valley. Namaste …
