A remote climb in Tajikistan

My Scholarship entry - A short walk in Afghanistan

Afghanistan | Wednesday, 29 October 2014 | 5 photos

I like to look beyond the horizon when I choose my expeditions. Despite other people's perceptions of countries with a bad reputation, I try judge if remote and unspoilt mountain region is feasible in terms of safety. This approach has taken me to Afghanistan twice. The Wakhan Corridor, wedged between the Pamir and Hindu Kush mountains, is a safe part of the country away from violence. Trekking and climbing happens to be world class with trails surrounded by 6000m peaks. Where snow leopards and Marco Polo Sheep roam. And where hospitality is engrained in the culture. With a herd of yaks we traveled the ancient routes crossing high mountain pass, glaciers and stunning Pamir valleys.
I recently bought a DSLR again (EOS70D), so now I can shoot in RAW format. I'd love to take my photography skills to a next level by receiving this scholarship and learn new techniques (very keen to master time-lapse as well!). My eye/composition is not bad, but I need to develop my DSLR knowledge.
