The interesting clouds and the light breaking through them give an extra dramatic touch to the impressive mountains. The jagged peaks look rather fearful by themselves but these weather conditions make them look even more like a no go area. At least to me. Tha lack of colours in this colour photo also has a dramatic effect.

A wonderful dark and brooding image at high altitude nicely composed with adequate detail, placement and tones. The bright zones provide great contrast to the mass of clouds, a shot full of mood and yet very exciting. Excellent shot, tfs

What a glorious shot, having done many hikes in my life, this makes me itches to put on my booth and go hiking, but then again I remember going through some passes that I can't barely breath, I was panting and sucking in lot of air, but no oxygen in the air. Panic for a moment and trying to calm down to gain my posture. Wow, this clouds, this light I feel like I'm there with you.

I like this photo with stormy sky over the mountains.
The photo looks almost like B&W.
Great quality shot and beautiful presentation.

This scenery is very dramatic. I love the mixture of snow and cloud that hangs on the peaks. Very well done.
Kind Regards, Ann

nice to see you back on TE again, but i had to take a look at this previous posted photo.
and who needs a bright sunny sky! this overcast grey sky is much more atmospheric and attractive in my opinion.
well done with the borders and framing too.

Yes I heard the trek is extremely difficult...
Nice view of the iconic peak from Kalpa...the clouds pay a good role for its beauty!
