Northern China’s Tibet region is a barren wasteland. I am not sure exactly the elevation were we at, but that same day we photographed ourselves at the highest point at 10,000+ feet. The air is thin at this elevation and you have to ensure you consume adequate amounts of water to remain hydrated.
Once I processed this image in color, I liked it but with so little actual color, I felt that black and white transformation would emphasize the texture more. Once I had the tonality down in black and white, I very sparingly added some of the Browns back from the color version to give the image a greater tonal warm feel.
Unfortunately, for some reason, the GPS unit on the Nikon camera did not capture the coordinates.
