Forcing the flash off was essential to getting the ambience of the party. The bright stabilized lens was the key to success in this case. The rather heavy and bulky lens wouldn't normally have been the choice for a multi-week high altitude trek, but dragging the added weight and bulk along paid off indeed.
Location: Saicho camp near the village of Hushe , northern areas of Pakistan
