This is a travel log of some of the fun things that we got to photograph and not the final photography results. That will have to wait until I get home to have access of post processing software and time to go through the photos more in depth.
Camels, camels, camels.....
Note that they are bactrian camels. They have the doule hump on the back instead of just the one. You can take rides on the camels, but I didn't see many people take rides and the very few that did, did not look comfortable on the return.
Going back over the pass to Leh. Are these guys cool, or what?
Pangong, itself, is over 81 miles in length but not very wide with it's widest just over 4 miles. 60% of the lake lies in Tibet, China.
As we drive down the long road towards the lake, this is our first view of the lake.
That night, we were to learn how to take star trails with a single shot. So, I think, all 20 of us set up in the dark with our tripods and did a test shot as per the instructions. Once we got our heading and horizon where we wanted it, all headlamps and flashlights were turned off and a 15 to 25 minute shot was created. I was just below the north star in order to get the mountains in. However, it was a good first try at this method of star trails and it was fun to do it with a lot of others so we could talk and joke around while the camera was doing all the work.
Tso Moiri and Tso Kar
We all went out for some sunset shots and some wanted to do some more time lapse photography, so we took off to a scenic point to do our photography. I did a little regular photography and also some time lapse stuff as well. It started also getting very, very windy. Venky, Vinnu, Nanda and I were riding back and Vinnu wanted to stop and take some long exposure photos. While I was sitting there listening to some tapes the driver had, Venky knocked on my window and pointed out the beautiful orange and pink sunset and rain. I immediately, got out and started to capture some of that beauty.
