Finally a decent Night lapse

Even after watching so many YouTube tutorials and reading up on aperture, ISO, shutter times and so on it has been quite difficult to do an night lapse video and have it turn out not only clear but also captivating.

So after a 3 am start ( mind you I still have a full days work afterward 🤦🏻‍♂️) I drove up to Kings Park in Perth and took this little beauty, it reminds me of a scene from the original Independence Day movie ✌️

5 hours for a 5 sec GoPro clip

You have to have patience for photography and a lot of passion for it. I spent 5 hours todays on my first attempt of a night lapse video using my new GoPro Hero 8. Some may call me a sucker for for new tech, and that I guess I am, but in all honesty to be able to capture an image or a small clip in the way I did today …. then its all worth it.

My Nerve Racking Flight to Lukla Airport

For many the biggest obstacle to Trekking in the Himalayas or Doing their first ( and i guarantee wont be their last) trek to Everest Basecamp is the flight to Lukla Airport. I don’t blame them as it has been named as the worlds most dangerous airport. However as with everything we do in life there is always a risk, and the aviation industry in Nepal is constantly improving.

Needless to stay the experience is always harrowing but once you land the elation and relief is an experience in itself 🙂

Nikon P900 v Mt Everest

When I was trekking in the Himalayas I took with me a Nikon P900 Superzoom Camera. Although a little heavy the zoom capabilities was astounding.

On my fourth day of the trek and during my acclimatisation day at Namche Bazaar I hiked up to Everest View Hotel for a coffee and a view of Mount Everest. The coffee was good and the view amazing,

I set up my Nikon and zoomed onto Mount Everest and and took these amazing photos of the tip of Mt Everest as well as Time-lapse of Everest famous Jet stream

Both Everest and Lhotse
