Seeing the sun rise against the Himalaya makes the sometimes arduous trekking, the very early morning starts and the cold temperatures even more pleasurable. Before the clouds start to build around the peaks and before even thinking about hiking boots and poles and the day ahead, there is the thrill of standing wrapped in blankets, sipping Nepali tea and just staring upward.

What an exciting view!
It must be an awe inspiring experience to actually see the sunrise illuminate the mountain.
With the snow and the sunlight, it would have been very easy to oe this shot but that has not happened.
The light and shadows reveal the very rugged and uncompromising nature of the mountain.
I am content to look ... I have no desire to climb!
Have a great w/e,

What an impressive mountain!
The sharpness is perfect, the white balance too.
