Himalayas

Although I have a huge backlog and hate posting pics out of chronological order, it's time to stop putting up photos of one holiday while on another! I have about 6 weeks of pics from cycling across France and after I got back (many of which are from the lovely 10-22mm lens I hired) but those will have to wait a while :-)

 

This is from the flight from London to Bangkok. It was a night flight and they made us keep the shutters down for most of it but I was excited about passing over one third of the world and kept peeking out. We did some maths on the way to the airport and calculated sunrise would happen about 2am. I peeked out around 3 to see a lovely red glow on the horizon ahead of us, probably somewhere over Russia. This pic was a few hours later somewhere over India I guess.
