Nepal - Valley of Eternity (Ripuk, Barun Valley)

Ripuk is a local name for one of the places in Barun Valley (Nepal) where locals setup their temporary seasonal settlements.

 

Centuries ago, the river Barun used to be a glacier here, flowing to the north composing this lush green valleys for today. The height of the cascading waterfalls against the rugged and stiff mountains reflects the sense of the flow of time and eternity at the same time

  

Title inspired by the instrumental composition Valley of Eternity by Marty Friedman, one of my most respected guitar gods.

Not HDR but a vertorama of 3 images (exposure metered with respective parts) stitched vertically. What I like most about vertorama is the dynamic range it gives with subject's more natural tone preserved. Of course it's mostly useful only in landscapes.

 

(P.S. I guess now I am back to flickr. Just removed my 'away' status. See u at your stream :)
