MTB Himalaya has always been special !
I covered MTB Himalaya first time in 2010 and it remains special for me. There are lot of reasons for that - made lot of good friends, get to explore some awesome places from my home state, felt inspired by passion of these bikers who come from different parts of the world. Not only that, this event challenged me as a photographer and I went through different emotions during that week. All those moments leave you with learnings. You may acknowledge those learnings at that moment or later, but you have opportunities to find out what could have been done differently and how. I went back to MTB again and saw this event improving every time.
Today when I look at all those Photographs I am not finding anything interesting and that’s the biggest challenge any photographer faces as we keep learning on daily basis and hence expectations keep changing from ourselves. Having said that there are some photographs which remain special because of stories or emotions associated with them. This blogpost shares some of the photographs along with some really interesting experiences/stories associated.
