Same case as with the first photo of the same name, Trekking in the Khumbu valley, also here the light is not the best - it was early morning, sun on the right hand and in the front, so this photo was made a little against the sun, but the expecting Khumbu valley looked so promising I could not help it.
And, also the same case as with the first photo, this is the essence of what is trekking in the beautiful Khumbu valley in Nepal about - about going slowly in thin air, about stopping each few meters to enjoy the magnitude of mountains around you, about listening to your Nepalese guide telling you names of unforgettable peaks...
P.S. The smallest snowy peak to the left is Everest, than Lhotse and the snow-covered one to the right is Ama Dablam.

ottimamente incorniciata l'immagine con le montagne innevate di fondo e la fila di panni colorati caratteristici di tanti luoghi del Nepal.
Ottima la gestione della luce,

Thanks to people like you, we get to see pictures of the magnificent Everest. So whether you are with the sun or against the sun, do not stop. Well taken shot

you're not afraid of the heights!
Nice compo with the snaking path leading to the snowy peaks, and the prayer cloth completing at the top your image. We know in which country you've taken this shot.

This is a typical picture of Nepal, but a very nice one!
I like the colored praying flags at the top of the picture. It reminds me some landscape I saw many years ago during my trek around the Manaslu.
The composition is good with the snowy mountains emerging from the V-shaped valley.

There is a sense of freeness and freshness with these fluttering flags. They are so high up and I like their weather worn look having distributed many prayers onto the wind to be carried away over the mountains. I like the contrast of the green mountains in the foreground as opposed to the snowy peaks in the distance, and the image has good depth.

compliments, your photo is amazing! The scenery is fantastic but the thing that makes the photo really special are the multicolored fabric flapping in the wind. Light, colors and sharpness are superb.

An awe inspiring mountain scene in thin air, what a fantastic capture.
Love all those diagonals, the colours and contrasts. The prayer flags certainly add
colour and It was a wonderful experience up there.
Great travel shot. Compliments

very smart composition. The colorful flags well hide the uniformly blue sky. They add so much life and an attractive framing here. The view is spectacular and the framing added some character making it much more interesting,
Cricri (92527) 2011-07-17 8:33
La beauté de ce paysage est fascinant, la lumière est belle, la particularité sont ces tissus colorées pris par le vent, c'est très joli

In this good composition you combine what I have in my mind,thinking about this country.A beautiful landscape.,very high snow covered mountains and buddhist prayer flags = a great shot!!!!
korbee (6595) 2011-11-20 8:25
vaery fine vieuw of the Ama Dablam and Everest range Ivana,I think the trail leading our eyes to the massive range is a good bonus.
The flags could be a bit less dominant in my eyes ;]],but on the other hand your frame fits perfect.
