This is part of the Marks on Land series, which includes aerial color photography of the Mount Everest Region of Nepal. This particular photograph was taken while traveling to Kathmandu to review the designs for his carpet tapestries. It’s large format digital photography using a helicopter as his platform. “My wife was approached by our dear Tibetan friend and asked what I might want to do while in their country. She responded that if he could get me in a helicopter that would certainly make my day. The very next day I found myself at the Kathmandu airport boarding the front seat of an A-Star helicopter headed to the Everest region. We first stopped at the famed Lukla, Khumbu Pasanglhamu, to drop fuel for the first flight home. We flew into the Everest valley of majesty and king-sized mountains. Like many, I suppose that we know Mount Everest, but what I didn’t know until flying way above the timberline was that there are so many unclimbable mountains known only by their Nepalese names. Of course, first creating the obligatory views of the mountains, I began to look straight down at the terminal moraine and glacial fields near the famed base camp of Everest. These abstracted views, when closely observed, contain man’s footsteps but mostly just the power and beauty of nature itself. I was told there was oxygen for the first flight but, being overcome by the place, never had the occasion to use. I’m often asked at what altitude we were flying, although I was never actually sure. Everest is now said to be approximately 29,000 feet. To me it was all part of my dream state.” – Tom Lamb
