I have just returned from leading my ‘Thunder Dragon Through The Lens’ bespoke photography workshop in breathtaking Bhutan.  In partnership with Leica Singapore, I shot exclusively with the mirrorless Leica SL system while I was in Bhutan.  This week I was offered the keys to the @leicastoresg Instagram account to share my impressions and experiences while working with the SL and the Leica Vario-Elmarit-SL 24–90 mm f/2.8–4 and Leica APO-Vario-Elmarit-SL 90–280 mm f/2.8–4 lenses, as well as showcase a handful of my favourite images from my photographic adventures across the enigmatic Himalayan Kingdom.

Hello, my name is Scott A. Woodward (@iamscottawoodward) and I am a Canadian visual storyteller who lives in Singapore and shoots across Asia and around the world. I have just returned from leading a bespoke photography workshop in breathtaking and enigmatic Bhutan. I shot exclusively with the Leica SL while in Bhutan, and this week I’ve been given the keys the Leica Store Singapore Instagram account to showcase a few of my favourite photographs from my adventures in the “Land of the Thunder Dragon”. Cradled deep in the creases of the soaring Himalayas, Bhutan is a spectacular mixture of stunning, rugged countryside, centuries-old architecture, vibrant and colorful culture and welcoming locals. I made this photograph of the Great Buddha Dordenma framed by prayer flags from Kuensel Phodrang Nature Park as the sun rose over Thimphu on my very first morning in Bhutan. Using the Leica SL’s internal integrated sensors and the horizon line that’s visible both on the monitor and inside the EyeRes electronic viewfinder, it’s simple to keep the camera level, even when shooting handheld landscape imagery. 📷: #LeicaSL | Vario-Elmarit-SL 24-90mm f/2.8-4 ASPH | 1/200 sec | f/11 | ISO 100 #Leica #LeicaCamera #LeicaSG #LeicaStoreSG #LeicaStoreSingapore #thimphu #bhutan #thunderdragon #buddhadordenma #buddhapoint #kuenselphodrang #igsg #sgig #singapore #natgeo #travel #travelgram
