Everest region Photo Comparisons

These pictures are all rollovers which show the CG composite, and with the mouse over you get the original photo. The renderings were done with World Construction Set 6. The terrain is derived from 90 meter DEM's which have been overlaid with Landsat photos. These photos have an on the ground resolution of about 14 meters so foregrounds have been broken up a bit with WCS bumpmaps. The only way I could get these bumps to show through the overlay was to make a bumpy ecosystem and use the "tint foliage" option on the colour map. This is set to fade out with distance from the camera. Matching the camera positions and focal length of the lense with the rendering points is only approximate

This picture is the view from the lookout above Namche Bazar looking down the valley to Everest. Everest is the peak to the left of centre peeking over the ridge of Nuptse 7896m. To the right is Lhotse 8510m.

This was taken from the summit of Gokyo Ri 5360m, looking down the Ngozumpa Glacier. The frozen Gokyo lake is in the foreground and the peak to the left of centre is Cholatse 6440m.

Here we have Ama Dablam 6856m seen from the trail heading to Phortse Tenga. Camera position here was uncertain.

 everest gokyo

Everest is seen here, again, from Gokyo Ri. The Nuptse ridge is on the right and the snowy col on centre left is the Lho La on the border with Tibet. The north ridge, where Mallory and Irvine dissapeared, can be seen leading down to the left of the summit of Everest.
