Winners Introduced – Trek Photographer of the Month November 2021

November within the mountains makes for beautiful pictures of landscapes. The grass is a magical sun-baked golden and is sprinkled with recent frost each morning. You too can see the sudden color modifications from Autumn to Winter.  For the November 2021 Trek Photographer Of The Month contest, we acquired over 200 images. Every {photograph} was distinctive in its personal approach – an attention-grabbing body, nice perspective pictures, Emotion images, and never-before-seen images of a number of the world’s highest summits.

With that, we announce the winners of the Trek Photographer of the month November 2021 and the Trekker’s Alternative Award Winner:

It is a image that made us go “wow!”, not for the placement or the composition. It’s purely for the colors and the morning mild that’s been captured on the proper second. It’s exhausting to imagine that it is a shot from a Himalayan village in India and never from any European setting. Congratulations Prajna Pujary! You’ve received the primary prize, a Trek Voucher of Rs 5,000 together with this nice day pack by Adventureworx!

For us, simply to catch a sight of Mt Chaukhamba from the shores of the Deoriatal is value doing your complete trek. Many trekkers seize the majestic mountain throughout dawn or sundown from the Deoriatal lake. Nonetheless, it’s uncommon for us to see a narrative unfolding in {a photograph}. That is what we love about this shot. We love the composition of this image because it captures the precise emotion of beholding this view in entrance of our eyes. Congratulations Amith Sreedhar.! You’ve received the Second runner prize, a Trek Voucher of Rs 2,000.

It is a uncommon composition. There are loads of spellbound color mixtures on a trek however the way in which this image exhibits the mix of a brown horse & the white winter snow makes it class aside. Congratulations Harshal Mehta! you’ve got received the trekker alternative award.

As you step into Gorson Bugyal, you get a terrific view of Mt Dronagiri and Mt Nanda Devi. You don’t get to see this view anytime earlier than this level. We love how this {photograph} captures the very first sight of this grand mount Dronagiri. From a pictures perspective, we notably appreciated the composition and framing of this picture, utilizing the withering tree within the foreground. It made for a really uncommon shot of the mountain we have now seen so many instances.

Digital camera Settings: Shutter – 1/2500, Aperture – 6.3, ISO – 200, Focal size – 45mm.

Siddharth Jain – Har Ki Dun

Most trekkers go on summit climbs to get good views and a way of accomplishment. But, right here’s a trek in a valley that provides you as massive rewards, and this {photograph} captures that superbly. The composition, following the rule of thirds, the main traces, with the trekker’s placement resulting in Mt Swargarohini, the dramatic clouds, all of them make for a surprising shot.

Digital camera Settings: Shutter – 1/2000, Aperture – 2.8, ISO – 200, Focal size – 5mm. (Captured in cellular)

Capturing scale on a trek shouldn’t be simple. It typically requires the photographer to climb closely off the path, go to a vantage level to get a perspective. And the photographer has carried out precisely that on this shot. It is likely one of the greatest images we have now seen that captures the size of trekkers towards the backdrop of Mt Dronagiri. Digital camera Settings: Shutter – 1/1435, Aperture – 1.7, ISO – 100, Focal size – 4mm. (Captured in cellular)

 Harshal Mehta – Sandakphu Phalut

Sandakphu Phalut is a trek that exposes you to the tradition of the Indo-Nepal border and the life they lead. But, it’s a side of the path that’s hardly ever spoken about. Which is why we beloved this picture. It’s a easy portrait {photograph}, which may let you know a thousand tales and run you thru so many feelings.

Digital camera Settings: Shutter – 1/100, Aperture – 4, ISO – 2500, Focal size – 36mm.

Dharun Viswanathan – Phulara Ridge

This image tells you the way underrated the campsites of Phulara Ridge trek are. Right here the Bhoj Gadi campsite is proven in such a marvellous setting. Merely for the novelty of this {photograph}, and the alpenglow on the mountain ranges within the backdrop, we love this shot.

Digital camera Settings: Shutter – 1/60, Aperture – 4, ISO – 400, Focal size – 24mm.

Nikhil MG – Har ki dun and Ruinsara tal

Maninda Tal is a not-so-well-known a part of the Har Ki Dun trek, but it surely looks like this image lastly positions it on a pedestal. Now we have by no means seen an image of the lake flowing out right into a stream from such shut proximity, and with such a stunning composition.

Digital camera Settings: Shutter – 1/4431, Aperture – 1.8, ISO – 125, Focal size – 7mm. (Captured in cellular)

 Ravichandra – Sandakphu

Silhouettes will not be simple to seize. However right here’s a photographer who has carried out so with aplomb. It’s not simply the colors, but in addition the composition of the shot, which captures the sundown from Sabargram so superbly. It nearly appears like a portray out of an artwork gallery.

Digital camera Settings: Shutter – 1/200, Aperture – 6.3, ISO – 100, Focal size – 24mm.

Thanks for taking part! We’ll be again with extra.
