During the tour of Nepal is one of the last destinations Pokhara. The lake of the same name offers a fantastic panoramic view of the region. The white formations top right of the picture are not clouds, but snow-capped mountains. The distant view was limited because it was a bit hazy.
“Pokhara Sub-Metropolitan City is the second largest city of Nepal with approximately 250,000 inhabitants and is situated about 200 km west of the capital Kathmandu. It serves as the headquarters of Kaski District, Gandaki Zone and the Western Development Region. Pokhara is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Nepal. Three out of the ten highest mountains in the world: Dhaulagiri, Annapurna I and Manaslu or Lamjung himal are situated within 30 miles (linear distance) of the city so that the northern skyline of the city offers a very close view of the Himalayas. Due to its proximity to the Annapurna mountain range the city is also a base for trekkers undertaking the Annapurna Circuit through the ACAP region of the Annapurna ranges in the Himalayas……” (Wikipedia)

A splendid view across this tranquil lake with its many boats. The eye catching yellow boat in the foreground makes a great frame and contrasts beautifully with the rest of the scene.

A great view across the lake. I like the random scattering of boats that fills the bottom two thirds of the frame. The nearest boat in the foreground catches the eye with its bright yellow paint. A well presented shot.

wow, that yellow boat really stands out doesn't it!
those are some pretty snazzy looking boats! full of color and textures with their peeling paint.
if you can believe it, i counted approx 48 boats! :)
but i'm sure there's more than that.
a great cultural shot of this lake and its inhabitants.

What a picturesque calm garage for those boats. I like the atmosphere and the colors. Well taken scene, have a fine day.

Very attractive picture!
Sharpness, exposure, colors, horizontal format, large black & white borders, contrasts, chosen pov and, above all, composition are all excellent photo qualities here and they all really pleased me!
TFS - congrats,

Vivid colours, sharp images with high contrast, excellent composition of the scattering of boats - all empty - floating in the peaceful lake. Perhaps - I would have normally cropped off the sky and the mountains exactly from the horizon of the lake. That would have kept me focused on the lake - but I would surely have missed out the essence of Pokhra..... The place is significant since most of the treks to western Nepal start from around Pokhra. hence the hills in the background acquires sinificance.
Thanks for the beautiful photograph.

Ce sont de très belles barques très colorées qui prennent toute la place sur ce très beau lac . Les montagnes à l'arrière plan sont comme un écrin pour la lumière.

This is a fine view of the hilly scenery and the quite impressive armada of small boats. The POV couldn't have been better, considering how the yellow boat brightens the whole view. Further back there are lots of attractive patches of blue, green, red and orange.

so many colourful boats,it appears to be a most peaceful location in an idyllic setting without the intrusion of tourism.

la saturazione è un pò elevata per i miei gusti, ma in questo caso la composizione è più bella e l'effetto è splendido.

Great shot, this wet my appetite for my up coming trip. I going to Nepal in a couple of weeks.
This is a lovely shot with great view and the lovely baots scatter around the lake makes beautiful subjects.

The perfect job.

I love this photo - especially the vibrant yellow of the boat in the foreground.
All the wonderful boats on the lake with the mountains in the background looks fantastic.
I noticed that there is only one person positioned just off centre enjoying the whole lake for himself.
Excellent clarity & perspective.
