Great photos of Nagchu. I am helping a `Tibetan academic convert her phd thesis into a book. She has completed a case study of Da, a nomad settlement close to Nagchu. What is `the name of the settlement in your photo.
Would you allow use of your photos in a book?
your website helped me a lot last year when traveling thru Indonesia...
Thanks for all the info on your web... I passed this site along to all my traveling friends....
Cheers from Phoenix, Arizona.
Wow! loved all your photos, I travel a fair bit but do not have an eye for photography like you, Thank You so much for sharing. Even though I have been to some of the countries and places that u have been I still enjoyed everyone of your photos
I've just returned from Nepal (Tsum Valley & Manaslu) & was looking for info on the Humla Simikot area when I found your site. Easily spent over an hour looking at your excellent photos. I've spent about 5 years traveling the world & it looks like you have done the same. I went to Dali as it opened up in 1984. Got arrested trying to hitch to Lijiang but ended up spending a month around Dali. I loved your photos of the places in Yunnan I was not allowed to see. Everything was closed back then. You have a great eye & figured out all the best places to travel. Thanks for sharing the photos.
Enjoyed your pictures of Vietnam, where I just went on a short visit in February. I see that you are a dedicated traveler and photographer. Quite admirable.
I've met a wonderful Tulku from Golok. It's good to see the beautiful people and the land where he grew up. Hope to travel there someday. Thank you for preserving images for the benefit of us all!
truly amazing photos!! ***green with envy**** :P

Great pictures! I appreciate the fact that you have chosen to keep away from commenting on the political and social conditions of the places you have visited and have instead focussed on photographing their natural and architectural heritage. On the other hand, I think your viewers would greatly benefit if you had brief description of the location along with some advice on how to reach them.
Otherwise, congratulations on terrific pictures!
Mathew, I liked all your pictures especially of Himalayas, myself being from the region. Once or twice a year I go on treks especially in HP and Garhwal. I love mountains and lakes very much. I wish you'd have given slightly more description of the pictures. Nevertheless, they are simply marvelous.
The World in Gods hand. Fabulous artful masterpieces. Was travelling also much in asia, but not in this area. Good Times to You.
amazing pics, keep ut the good work
I am indian living in NewZealand, I even dont know such beutiful places in India, very beutiful pictures of Indian Himalayas.
I want to visit these places one day.
It is very beautyful pictures. I love to see any kinds of pictures. I am never been many place of Nepal as well other country but I got a chance to see most place of Asia. Thank you very much for such a kindness work.
Utterly gorgeous (your Tibet gallery), Matthew, and I'm a photographer. I have been there twice in fall and realize now what I am missing by not going in spring. I am going to trek Kailash in September (2009) and am looking forward to it through your photos.
Your photos look as though they are just shot with a polarizing filter without manipulation in Photoshop; is this correct? If so, good for you.
The pictures of the snow mountain in Zhongdian are beautiful!!!

Hi Matthew, I love the photos you took in Tibet and I'm planning to visit there on coming July. Are you visit Tibet star from Yunnan? Since I will visit Lijiang and Shangri-la first and then head to Lhasa by land. I just following what the Lonely planet suggestion: Lijiang>>>Zhongdian>>>Deqin>>>Pomda>>>Rawok-Tso>>>Namche Barwa>>>Lamaling Temple>>>Draksum-Tso>>>Lhasa.
By the way, what recommendation about photograhy in Tibet? I'm wondering is that better to use Canon G9 rather than take heavy equipment to there. Thanks for your help.
Matthew, truly stunning! Makes me want to run right back there. Keep it up! Anita
Great pictures of the Nujiang - I was there just after you, in Dec 2007. Also had great weather for the trip up from Bingzhongluo to Chawalong.
loved himachal pics. Its my home town. thanks alot
Very interesting & beautiful gallery
Thank you for the great images of Dolpo. I just finished reading The Snow Leopard and wished that I found these pics before so I had a better idea of how it looked and how difficult the trek would be.

Thanks Matthew for sharing your beautiful photos.

Very interesting & beautiful gallery Matthew. Keep up the good work!
Hope you update soon as I'll be anxiously awaiting.
Beautiful photos about Vietnam. Made me miss my hometown. Great job !
Some true talent here :)
Great work,beautiful images,well done!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I enjoyed the pictures very much. Are you planning to go northern Shan State of Burma? I visited home through your beautiful picutres. I miss home! Maymyo, Mandalay, Thibaw, Inle, etc. I'll keep checking your site.
It great. Especialy for women sitting by comp and working all day, dreaming about mountintrack(-:I want to say much more about feelings from your photos, but my English...(-: Thank you.
Wonderful photography Matthew, and invaluable for me in researching my destinations for my up-and-coming trip to Thailand and Cambodia.
Great pictures. I love HP and Lahaul in particular. Your photo of the Miyar valley really took me back to a 4 day up and back hike from Udiapur many years ago. I would love to hear about how far up you went and if you crossed over to Zanskar. Local "maps" indicate many "passes" between side nalas off the Chenab. Steep country...a great place to explore.
Stunning galleries filled with exceptional photography...
You have an amazing collection of photos! Keep up the good work!
I love your rich Asian experience.. You ahve done a great job recording life and nature in this brilliant way.. Warm congratulations..
I am Thai.I just traval on the south of Thailand and I had a pictures of Ko LeePae but it's not beautiful like yours. Thank you to wake up my memories and I try to pack my back again!!!
I have just seen your pictures of the Manali and Parbati River areas. I climbed in the Tos Glacier area and spent some weeks renting a room in the apple orchards about 100m from Duff Dunbar twenty years ago. I had forgotten how truely beautiful that part of the world is. Seeing your vibrant pictures makes me ache to go back again.
Your galleries are a real pleasure, lots of diversity from every place, with people, landscapes, sights, all really well photographed. I must admit I have not looked them all, but just a matter of time.
I stumbled upon your galleries as I was browsing Philippines photos. You have an amazing collection of pictures from SE Asia. I'll have to spend more time looking at them. Thanks for sharing your beautiful images of places that I doubt I'll ever see!
Great pictures and thanks for sharing them. You should think about writing a book to share your experiences on your trip.
Lovely pictures! Especially those of Kailash and Tibet.
I love travelling but do not have the opportunity to do so. Your pictures made me part of the world. Thank you!
philipp von Steinaecker
wonderful Tibet pictures!!! Might I ask exactly what equipment you used and in particular if you used a polarization filter or not. Congratulations again to your outstanding galleries!!!!
Awesome galleries. I´ll come back to see the rest of your pics. I've just added to my favorites. Thanks for sharing.
Greetings from Madrid
Wonderful gallery. Im wondering why you dont have any pictures of Hong Kong.
I was happy to see your pictures of Phuket and Phi Phi with the Tsunami (mostly) cleaned up. We were in Phuket just before; it wasn't so empty then. See
Also enjoyed your beautiful photos of Angkor and others. - Max
I enjoyed your pictures very much; as if I feel, hear and smell the atmosphere.
Thanks for sharing
All the great travel galleries you have here...
The gallary looks marvelous. This is the first time I am seeing a wonderful photos of INDIA in Internet.
I appreciate your interest on Inida.

thank you very much for displaying such beautiful photos. You have shown views of India many haven't. I can understand your painstaking effort. Thanks to people like you, people world over are able to see "real India".
try visiting me at
Your pictures are excellent. I spent apx 3 years traveling Asia and your images brought back many memories. I especially liked the photos from Ladakh and Zanskar. I went there in 1982 but someone stole 20 rolls of film covering that period and a walk around Annapurna. Anyway, thanks for putting the shots up. It gave me an hour of pleasure.
Your galleries look great. It will be really interesting to see what you come up with with your new Digital. Maybe your usual composition will change...and it will give you
fresh angles. One good thing is that now you can experiment more knowing you won't be wasting film. I know you are due to go on another trip so it will be great to see your new pix.
Hi Matthew. I looked at Vietnam and Lombok and left comments there, but I wanted to say it looks as though there is lots more to see in your galleries. I'll be back. thanks for the galleries. Denise
I enjoyed your pictures of SE Asia, but it seems as though you only took pictures at the 'tourist' type locations. I realize that traveling is expensive and you don't have all the time in the world, but on your next trip try the back alleys and places tourists don't go. It's an entirely different world. I lived in Cambodia for a year doing humanitarian aid, but didn't bring my nice camera...I would appreciate seeing some quality photos of the side of SE Asia tourists don't see...
Great images in all your galleries, Matthew. Well done. I am much travelled too and wished I had a DSLR when I was in India back in the 70s and 80s. My only comment on your galleries is that they would look far better on a non-black background. May I suggest you check out Slug's CSS stylesheets - they are 100% better than the basic black.
