Photo Of The Day – Chiseled By Ice And Wind

Title: Chiseled By Ice And Wind

Location: Solukhumbu, Nepal, Asia

Description: The Himalayas in Nepal have existed longer than man has been on this planet, giving the elements plenty of time to shape and carve. While some mountain ranges are cut by rain, the Himalayas, towering as grand as they are, can only be reached by wind and snow or ice. The eons of scouring have left a chiseled landscape sometimes imaginatively sharp enough to cut the very sky for which they reach. Clouds will swirl and leave, but the mountains will forever hold fast against the march of time, ice and wind.
