Photographer's Note

This is a shot from the trail on the way to Mount Everest Base Camp. The altitude here is about 3900m, and at this height those steps are very difficult to climb (when people say Nepal is breath-taking, they're not just talking about the view!). The mountain in the background is called Thamserku, with a height of 6,808m. The clouds you see in shot are a common occurence there. Most days started totally clear, but as the warm air from lower altitudes rises up the valleys, it starts to form clouds. Between about 10:00 and 2:00 the cloud thickens and obscures the mountains.

This was scanned from Fuji Velvia.
