Nepal North Fife Photographs

Within months of moving to north fife from the borders I spent 3 months undertaking a photographic commission to create an archive of Tibetan Monastic culture. In Nepal I took a holiday and walked most of the way to Annapurna base camp this was a typical village in early April where most rooftops were covered in peas to dry.

Fuel for cooking is wood, wood that is getting more scarce and since this photo huge deforestation is in process and consequent soil erosion. This is how it's transported.

At an altitude of 8 to 9 thousand feet forests of Rhododendron prevail massive compared to garden examples I and maybe you are used to. I remember that the only way to find the trail through was noticing crushed ladybirds from previous walkers.
