Photographer's Note

I raced to cross the highest pass on the Annapurna Trekking Circuit (Thorung La), and my haste proved fortuitous as the day after saw the earliest winter snowfall the region had seen for years. The pass was closed for well over a week and trekkers were stranded on the other side. I spent the next few days walking through snow and then through a foot of very unpleasant slush. Sadly, many climbers were killed in avalanches on surrounding peaks, and in the Khumbu region that week. These beautiful autumn colours surround the village of Jharkot, an attractive village on the 300km citcuit.
