This is a very old image, one of the oldest I have on file. It features a village and cultivated fields backing onto step hillsides fringed by low overhanging clouds. I made the image during my first trip to Tibet in 1988. It was my first overseas adventure and involved great beauty, excitement, hardship, illness and, of course, love.

I made the image with a Canon New F1 camera and Canon 50mm f1.8 lens. Back then I was using Agfachrome CT100, a 35mm film relatively low in saturation by contemporary standards. Fortunately, despite an old and average quality scan, Adobe Camera RAW and Adobe Photoshop CS4 have enabled me to bring the image back to life.

I love the old, crumbled buildings, the verdant greens of the fields and the ominous mood associated with the low-lying clouds. It is a classic setting that provides a great memory of a life-changing experience.
