Those mighty mountains are always wonderful!
This picture is truly beautiful!
Colors, exposure, chosen pov and composition are all excellent photo qualities!
Those colorful small "flags" are certainly a highlight in this image and they were so harmoniously placed in the frame!
TFS - congrats,

Those prayer flags bring back the fresh memory and almost synonymous to Nepal. What a great thin air rugged image here, simply stunning not only in color rendition but the refine elements well put together; the lead-in and the gigantic nature wonder glue the eyes in and lovely mist across abv the valley. Touch of sun kissed foreground is valuable in contrast to top frame greyish mist, and amazing actually when we are high up above clouds, we are very small in front of nature and almost nothing where the peaks hold everything together nicely. A gorgeous shot well shot! and thks for sharing. My compliments.

Ces drapeaux de prière offrent un bon premier plan à cette belle photo de ce magnifique endroit.

Beautiful landscape and great composition.I like the way you framed the image with colourful prayer flags at the bottom and the cloud enveloped mountain summits.
Makes me wish I were there in the Himalaya right now.

A beautifully composed scene, the touches of color at the lower part contrast wonderfully with the colorless and imposing mountains above. This creates a fantastic sense of depth in the image too. Thanks as always for sharing.
all the best

Nice view of Kalpa. I like the bright light and shadows dividing the frame. Impressive view of Jorkanden and Raldang peaks through the mist. Love your framing with the prayer flags. Kalpa and its adjoining areas is the best hill station in India at present. Thanks for sharing.

Nice one from Kalpa Dwaipayan, with the colourful prayer flags in the FG and the Kinner Kailash in the BG, seemingly in the late hours of the day
