it must be an amazing place to watch the day end with all these summits around you. The little shelter looks cosy enough to spend a night or two and explore the area. Nicely composed and with interesting framing. Good natural colors and optimum sharpness.
Thanks for sharing

Wow a photo of sandakphu, that takes me back 30 years or so. We trekked here from Darjeeling and got caught along the way in a terrible snow storm, luckily the owners of the rest house came looking for us it's the night was beginning to approach. The next morning we were blessed with a clear sky and wonderful views of the surrounding peaks.
A fine composition and very good light management
Thanks for the memory :)

This is a nice winter weather shot. The sky is great and adds a splash of color to this grey scale scene. The angle of the shot works well giving the photo a sense of direction.

Une belle scène d'hiver qui fait très changement avec les images habituelles en ce temps de l'année. Une image d'une grande pureté avec un très beau contraste entre le blanc et le bleu du ciel.

You've captured the coldness, but deep snow is always good value especially under the brilliant sunlight & colours, it's crisp snow landscape with the chalet provides the stark contrast to the deep blue and white. The hint of minimal background extends the sense of depth, excellent shot and your commentary has said it all really.....
