Photographer's Note

The Karakorum Highway is the highest highway on earth. It connects China with Pakistan and you have to make high passes of about 5000 meters.

The picture I took was near de Karakol Lake (3700 m) where I did spend the night. Early in the morning I was walking with my guide in the direction of the Muztagh Ata when I heard quick footsteps of a donkey. The man and his car was running on the Highway and he was there completely alone. I did not hesitate one moment and started to run to the highway, meanwhile trying to get my camera out of my bag. It was almost 100 meter and on that altitude is was very tiring.
I came at last at the very last moment where I could take a picture, the donkey was running pretty fast.
Thanks to the Image Stabelizer I could take the one and only picture :-)))))
