The peaks of the Kanchenjungha range catch the first rays of the rising sun.
Located on the boundary between Nepal and the Indian state of Sikkim, Kangchenjunga (the peak on the right) is the third highest mountain in the world with an elevation of 8,586 m (28,169 ft). The Geological Survey of India indicates the summit of Kangchenjunga at 8,598 m (28,209 ft). It is the highest peak in India and is called Five Treasures of Snow after its five high peaks, and has always been worshiped by the people of Darjeeling and Sikkim.
Kangchenjunga was first climbed on 25 May 1955 by Joe Brown and George Band, who were part of a British expedition. They stopped short of the summit as per the promise given to the Maharaja of Sikkim that the top of the mountain would remain inviolate. Every climber or climbing groups that have reached the summit have since followed this tradition.

Ils sont beaux ces sommets enneigés qui prennent les teintes du soleil couchant. J'aime beaucoup le contraste entre la lumière et l'ombre.

The distance to the mountains is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colours of the mountains. The sunrise is giving a golden colours to the peaks. Have a nice day.
