This was taken in Sagarmatha National Park. Ama Dablam(6812 meters) is on the right. Lhotse (8501m) and Mount Everest(8852m), known as Sagarmatha in Nepali or Chomolungma in Tibetan, are on the left. Thangboche Monastery is barely seen in the middle.

I love pictures taken in that part of the world. (I have been there thrice and wish to go again!)
This is a nice capture from Khumjung-Khunde perspective. The white plume over Lhotse with that circular three-dimensional formation on top gives added value to your picture.

Thisnis another one I liked from your stash. The cloud formation is really fantastic. Now I have moe time to look at thisshot and Im digging it. A really good view from a place that probably offers millions of great views.

This is a wonderful photo. Capturing such spectacular scenery so well, in a location most of us will probably never see, is something very special. I'd love to go there myself if I could but, being on a limited budget, such adventures are going to have to wait.
I love the deep blue of the sky and the way it contrasts so strongly with the snow and the cloud. The plume ofer Lhotse almost looks like a HAT! :-)
I feel that it would have been even better if the landscape below the snowline and in the foreground was a little lighter but that detracts very little from this pic.
Well done, my friend.

Beautiful view at the highest in our world mountains. Great colours and composition with the altocumulus cloud over top of the world.

Mountains, high mountains and very dangerous...
Lhotse for me very tragic mountain, becouse there perished my favorite climber - Jerzy Kukuczka ;(...
very nice photo, well done...

Shot is crisp and clear. The cloud cover on the left adds a sense of movement and foreboding to the dramatic scene.I agree that the foreground is a tad underexposed, but it adds weight and power.

A good POV of these great mountains, the photo has nice colors and a good composition. The cloud around Mount Everest is giving a special effect to the photo.

Wow, Lhotse seems to have wings, like a giant eagle. Interesting in your picture, how these sacred summits emerge from the dark, in their white dress, and over our heads !

The high peaks are attractive, indeed. I like the formation of the cloud, the snowy slopes and the deep blue colour of the sky. I can hardly see the monastery but the whole presentation is well seen. Thanks for sharing.
