We have been following National Geographic photographer, Stephen Alvarez, as he treks the world to each of its seven natural wonders, capturing some impressive pictures and video so far with a Nokia Lumia 1020 and Lumia 1520 from the Grand Canyon in the southwest United States, and the Harbor of Rio de Janeiro in Brazil.
Next stop is Nepal, and that can mean only one thing, Mount Everest. For this leg however, the Lumia 1020 has been handed off to make way for the latest to join the Lumia line-up, the Lumia 930. While not packing the mega-41-megapixel sensor of the 1020, the new Lumia still has an impressive 20-megapixel camera, optical image stabilization, and PureView to make it all come together.
Video and photos of this latest segment of the adventure do the Lumias proud, and while any mountainous landscape is picturesque, the terrain and culture around the Himalayas and Mount Everest is something to behold, even if only through pictures and video.
We shared a few of the pictures and the promo video below (including the panoramic banner image above, click to see full resolution), but there are dozens more via the National Geographic source link, plus interactive maps of the trip, and photographer tips to master the countless customization settings on your Lumia. This particular trip took place in April. Three wonders down, four to go. Which natural wonder will Alvarez explore next? The Great Barrier Reef? Victoria Falls? Paricutin Volcano? Aurora Borealis? Which one do you want to see next?
