Thorong La / Nepal
With the snowy glaciers of Thorong La looming above Muktinath, this little town is a welcome sight for trekkers on the Annapurna Trail. It's also a unique place for photographers to visit for Himalayan scenery and a glimpse of culture through the centuries.

Photography for Travellers
Ewen's guiding principles are simple...
"Go slow. Get closer. Look for the light."
"Photography is about showing other people how to see, to share the beauty of life. It's not a job, it's a lifestyle. We only get one lifetime, one chance to add some light into the world. Photography competitions are mostly silly. Cats are excellent."
