Photo Of The Day – Aerial View Of Mt. Everest And Makalu


Title: Aerial View Of Mt. Everest And Makalu

Location: 37,000’ over Nepal

Description: Flying between Bhutan and India offers a unique view on the right side of the plane. I could not peel my eyes away from the window for the hour I was along side the Himalayas. A wonderful experience. In the distance is the Tibetan Plateau.

Mt. Everest, surrounded by Lhotse and Nuptse, is on the left and Makalu, the fifth highest mountain in the world, stands by itself on the right.

Shot with a Canon 7D and Canon 28-300mm L lens with settings of ISO 100, 70mm, f/7.1, 1/1000th of a second
