Photo Of The Day – The Specter Of The Mountain

Title: The Specter Of The Mountain

Location: Monjo, Solukhumbu, Nepal, Asia

Description: To be honest, this is one of my favorite images from Nepal. It’s not high up, it’s not even Mt. Everest. But it’s the illusion conveyed. The feeling of something there, just beyond reach. A photo of a mountain that’s not a mountain, at least that we can’t see. Something beyond what we’re able to grasp.
