This refurbished "version 2.0" of my previous TIBET 2012 comes with fully re-edited images and a few panoramas added. Now its content is organized into 8 "galleries", broadly following the timing and itinerary of our visit. Nikon D200 coupled with Nikkor DX 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 VR. - Images edited in Lightroom 5.7 - Panoramas stitched using HUGIN or Microsoft ICE Optimized for use on an HD (1920x1080) screen. For the best viewing experience, click the "Fulls Screen" button first. You can adjust the presentation interval and transition effect after clicking the "Settings" button. Then after selecting a gallery of choice, click "Start Slideshow". While viewing any pano image, you can go to fullscreen height view by clicking the "Expand Panorama" buttom, and then 'navigate' the pano by hoovering with the mouse. "X" button will close the current window going back to Gallery Page. Up Arrow will send you back to Index Page.
The great Italian Explorer, Ethnologist and Orientalist Fosco Maraini was the first European who traveled Tibet during the XX century (1937). His book "Secret Tibet" is a highly recommended reading and a unique photographic documentation of the lost traditional Tibetan civilization.
