Title: Just Before Sunrise, Himalayas
Location: Dingboche, Solukhumbu, Nepal, Asia
Description: Frost covers the short scrubs that is brave enough to attempt to grow in the harsh conditions at 13,000’ above sea level. Soon clouds will roll in and obscure the distant mountains, but for a while, calm and sunshine reign.
Shot with a Canon 7D and Canon 10-22mm EF lens with settings of ISO 100, 10mm, f/8, 1/160th of a second and the use of a 2-Stop Singh-Ray Graduated Neutral Density Filter

These Himalaya shots just get more and more jaw dropping – this one just hits the spot! There is so much ‘story’ in there!
Beautiful! I imagine it was peaceful there at this time of day.
Fabulous shot. Love the use of perspective and scale with the leaf and the village. Nice work!
Wow this is breathtaking. It’s a perfect shot. And looks like such a peaceful place.
