Though they were part of the group of about 8 to 10, but i do not know them from before. I was invited to give a talk on Astro Photography.Great passion yours!!! Fantastic pictures indeed.
If those following you were from your group, then, this sounds odd! A group gathering at a far place for such a purpose, must surely know the etiquettes of a jungle walk! On the other hand, didn't you request them after the first walk? Beats me!!
Thank you for the nice pictures, but you didn't reveal the name of the place. Is it on purpose? Or I need to read more carefully?
