Photographs of the Worlds High Mountains

This image was made with considerable difficulty. First I had to travel to Nepal and Pakistan, then these three great ladies had to be persuaded to pose together for this snap. This was more difficult than I expected. Everest, who refused to pose at all unless she was exclusively referred to as Sagamatha, insisted on being in the middle and she was not going to move from the Khumbu. She was , after all the "mother goddess". I managed to persuade Kangchenjunga to make the short move to the Khumbu by complementing her on her splendid covering of snow. "You put Sagamatha to shame" I said. K2 was not so easy as it is a long way from the Karokaram to the Khumbu region but she finally agreed only if she could be at Sagamatha's right hand and if I used lighting that was particularly flattering of her "good flank"

  

Computer Generated Mountains.

Most people will have seen Google Earth and many will have seen NASA's WorldWind. What you will find here is not real time but looks better (I hope). I use similar data to these applications but render them out with various bits of software to give animations and stills to illustrate the treks I have been on in many of the worlds mountainous areas. So far I have completed the areas shown below.

Note that this section is ancient and needs some serious updating. I will get round to it when I have this site converted to Joomla, a big task that I am only just starting so don't hold your breath!

Exotic Places

This is the entrance to an area that will addle the mind of any non-Robinson foolish enough to enter. Even Robinsons may be induced to groan, but that's what family pages are for. Click the picture for a bigger version and click the title to see us. This is not completed so don't expect too much.
