** just a little light **

This is my favorite type of lighting. Like chocolates, you never know what you are going to get.
No artificial light was used at any time. I used the Canon 5D with the 135L for many of the images with a few taken with the 17-35L. The 30D and 350D were also used on a few images with either of the mentioned lenses.
These images were photographed in China, Tibet and Nepal, with most images taken over a two month period this summer.

Being right doesn't mean you have the right. But there is always hope. JA, Dr. Eisenberg

I wish to thank everyone who has posted comments on this gallery. There have been hundreds of comments when I include those on the individual images. I would like to respond to each one but with my current workload I have not been able to. I appologize for this but please know that I appreciate what you have written and again, I thank you.
