That's a country I'd really like to go someday! And you show us a different view of there, not of the highest mountains, but also a beautiful place! The strong colors of the foreground make a beautiful contrast with the foggy background, which is great! Wonderful job!

Nice panorama across this freshwater lake. Nice composition with the land and the little boats in the lower part of the picture and then the lake and misty mountains behind give an idea of the scale of the lake. The boats look very inviting to go out for a sail on the lake.

This is a fine view of the lake from a good POV. Although the far side of the lake is partly covered in clouds there is a very good light and clarity on the nearest part, making the small boats look like they are almost shining. I also like the pattern of different colours of the water created by winds and currents.

It is a fantastic panorama. The shining little boats in the blues - created a superb effect. Beautiful sky and a misty background with a contrast of colourful building and part of garden in Fg.- is excellent.
Very well done.

There were a lot of canoes and dinghy boats, when I was there in 2000, but none (or almost no) masted yachts as depicted here. A good high pov and I hope you got a taxi to and from Sarankot? A superb high pov with excellent sharpness and colour saturation. Tfs!

A fine all encompassing view of the lake which makes the boats seem tiny and almost like toys. The mist in the distance creates a very nice mysterious air to the shot too. A fantastic sense of space throughout the scene, lovey capture.
All the best

Fine view of Fewa Lake for the anchored sailboats, vast lake fading into the blue.
I would like to sail here someday.

This is very pleasant photo in superb soft light. I like the excellent contrast between well lit boats and the slightly hazy BG.
Your high angle viewpoint is also excellent. Well done.

Good morning Miguel,
The far side of the lake is under mist, while the FG on pic. had a direct light on, enhanced the golden tone of the boats and the contrast over the water.
Nepal rural country is on high altitude, so not surprised it was on 742m height.
Did enlightened my knowledge,

I had never thought that Nepal also looks like this. The nice thing with TrekEarth is that you get to know other "faces" of many countries and regions than the well known.
A beautiful image in very soft light, nice colors and a welcoming atmosphere.
Have a nice day

This is a beautiful postcard from Nepal. I love the low clouds hanging on the mountains.
PS. You were wrong about A Night from a Previous Life. You might want to read the note, after all ;-)

Quite unusual capture of Nepal, Miguel,with an informative note to introduce it
Good high POV to show the boats shining in the blue waters in a bluish atmosphere covered with mist at the back
Well done, have a great week
