Our final day was supposed to be a crusher: 100 kilometres in sweltering heat and humidity, mostly on a paved road. Instead, due to a mechanical failure on one of the bikes, and a general lack of interest in riding on the paved road, we caught a ride on the roof of the locals’ bus to Pokhara. Keeping an eye out for low hanging power lines, we were highly entertained by the guy collecting fares (pictured on the left). He would climb out of the bus and check for new passengers on the roof, all while the bus kept moving. For this shot I really wanted to convey a sense of motion and a bit of chaos, so I used a slow shutter speed to blur the shot, and shot with a wide angle to capture as much of the crazy scene as I could.
