While I was trekking back to Namche Bazaar, the Sherpa capital in the Khumbu Himal, the thick swirling cloud cleared for just a few seconds to reveal the peak of Kwangde Ri (6187m) which towers over the Sherpa town.

Perfect framing with the trees either side of the peak. Talk about right place at the right time

Wow! wonderful how these trees are framing the mountain. With the light on it it almost looks like a diamond. Colors are fantastic too.

A landscape of snow it is always beautiful but on this blow in more it is well tallied and very quite made up.

like a japanese print. Wonderful. Trees on the front are giving a perfect DOF. I could be very nice also in B&W...

Ah, that's incredible. You managed to capture the moment when sky dissolves earth. Can not belive my eyes, that's magic.

I love the colors - just dark green, brown, and white. The mountain in the center, between the trees, is perfectly placed. nice shot.
