Today I am presenting an old photo from my album. It was captured from Phalut top, half a km from Phalut(11818 ft), on the trek route of Manebhanjang- Sandakphu- Phalut- Gorkhey. You can see mount Kumbhakarna at middle and the famous Mt. 'K' (kanchenjunga, third tallest peak in the world) just at the right of it. When I shoot this photo, Mt. 'K' was getting covered gradually by the incoming clouds. The ridge you can see the middle of the two slopes at foreground is called 'Singalila top'. Hope you will enjoy the view, and hope you'll like this shot, which is one of the oldest capture of mine.

Bonjour, cher ami Subhendu,
"La montagne offre à l'homme tout ce que la société moderne oublie de lui donner"
Merveilleuse prise de vue où la beauté est vraiment mise en valeur.
Un réel plaisir à contempler.

A very attractive landscape composition; the point of view is well chosen looking across the gaps in the peaks towards the distant mountains. The ambient light is very agreeable and well managed by you. Excellent depth.

Beautiful landscape of high mountain.
The degraded one of color of the different levels of mountains, gives a great depth to the image.
The snowy mountain chain of the background has a great brightness, despite of the clouds that they cover partly.

Très beau panorama qui fait ressortir toute la beauté de l'endroit. Le paysage est magnifique et la lumière le fait parfaitement scintiller.

At this altitude, we must start to miss air seriously !!! This marvellous panorama is worth that one suffers a little during the trekking. Beautiful mountainous landscape and the presence of the cloud brings much to the image I find. Thank you Subhendu.
With all my friendships and with soon,

Well done with the exposure here...not easy on snow capped peaks! The layers in the FG of the mountain slopes add to the depth!

Wonderful giant mountains, I like the sense of distance and the clouds indicating highness. Another highlight is the diversity of the mountains, snow mountain, grass mountain, very good. Congratulations!
