I think more than the loss power of power it was the momentum issue. Quite a few times I deliberately stopped for a minute or so to get a clear road ahead for the climb so that I didn't had to lose my momentum. Maintaning momentum while tackling switchbacks is even more important.

Last shot was camera flash or mounted flash? Nice spread must say.

Increased the flash intensity to three points up.

Increased the compensation as well. Thats why I lost the details on background, but managed to get the faces.

Saji, The group photo, the last one, at Tso-Morori, has come out really well! Of course, all other pictures are also amazing!

The group photo was taken on the Day 11 Morning while exiting Tso - Moriri and after a surprise re-union of the gang. What the picture has not captured is the impromptu B'day Song sang for Bidisha!

A big thanks to the whole gang from Bidisha.

What a birthday gift it was - a morning at Tso Moriri.

In case you are wondering what the Basus, Bhats, DJs and DocM's are doing in this picture, that was the ultimate surprise - having come to Tso Kar the previous day, AB's Bolero and Doc M's Scorpio decided to come to Tso Moriri after all, and we ran into each other just a few minutes before the photograph was taken on the morning of Day 11.

And it was an unforgettable, wild and once in a life time drive that we had between Tso-Kar and Tso - Moriri . If I have to give only one high-point of my entire 18 day trip, it was undoubtably this ride.

Kumar - Our initial plan was to stay at Spangmik for the night and looks like you took the same road as us, as we too had given up the mission to reach Spangmik and decided to return back to Tangtse. I think we forgot to mention this to you in our gossip otherwise you could have avoided this effort.

You can link that to the video in post 284.(http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/1526910-post284.html)

Imagine doing that stretch in the night to understand the risk MC and Doc had taken. You will be clueless about the direction, forget sensing it.
