    Hi All,

    Descending from Banthanti (3180m) to Gorephani (2750m) was easier although long and quite kneel-cracking at certain part of the trail. We rested early at Gorephani and rose before dawn the following day to make an early climb (about 4.30am) to the top of Phoon Hill (3193M).

    Climb up Phoon Hill is a popular trip. Many of us (trekkers from different groups) armed with torchlight, took about an hour to climb to the top. Here are 3 images showing the changing scene from dawn to after sunrise. The trail of light in #1 was from trekkers’ torchlight. All shots were taken with 17-40mm zoom lens and GND filters. ISO set at 200.

    Thanks for viewing and all C&Cs are welcomed.

    Best regards

    What is the reflective things that formed a line on the lower part in #2?. Might prefer without it… :?

    Thanks for the kind words, PP.

    That is the rubble parapet along the edge of the Hill in #2. Too excited…did not cross my mind at that moment. :doh_alamak:

    Cheers

    CK,

    #3 is nice, esp the grasses. Are the men standing or sitting?
    Cheers,

    Thanks KT. Those were the guys who started to descend to Gorephani. If you look careful at the left hand corner, there is a gate.

    Cheers

    The light shinning on them is beautiful. ("It’s not the lens or camera but the time and the place." I quote from someone saying.) CK, thanks for sharing.
    Cheers,

    CK,
    Nice set of sunrise. Like the mood of the mountain ranges in #2.
    Salute to you – You went trekking with GND filter!!

    KT – Agreed with you. Being at the right place and at the right time is one of the key factors to capture great images.

    Darren – Thanks for your positive comments. Glad that you like viewing them.

    Hi Ming – Thanks for viewing and kind words. Since I have a set of GND filters, I rather brought them along than regret later.

    Best regards

    CK,

    #3 for me too! The light is just gorgeous! I do not know about the clothes/flags? at the bottom of the frame in #2, could you go ahead more to get them out of the pic?

    Cheers

    Endy, TC and Han,

    Thanks for your comments.

    Han, yes could be avoided by moving forward to the edge of the Hill…just too excited at that moment while waiting for the sunlight to appear on the mountains at the opposite side.

    Cheers

    Hi C K,

    great reward for waking up early and trekking in the dark for the images.

    Love especially the layers in #3
