Stillness Under a Tobacco Sky.
The clouds clear and Everest and Ama Dablam rise into the twilight sky. The dust from the plains of India occasionally brings some incredible twilight colors to the Himalaya. That's Everest on the left and Ama Dablam on the right.

I like this beautiful view of Himalaya. The color of sky is strange but it fits very well to this photo. It is almost a sepia picture.
The format of the picture is good and the photo's composition is perfect.

Beautiful mountainous landscape! The tobacco sky is quite appealing. I wonder why your pic is so small though.

The lightning here is incredible. This tobacco sky is sharing a dreamlike atmosphere on this high mountain landscape. It is increased by the myst in the valley. When I was there 3 years ago, the weather was not nice and I got only few usuable photos of the Everest and Ama Dablam.

A very interesting light well captured
A nice sight on the Hymalaya.

It's another gem from my friend Michale.
This shot reminds me my EBC days. This one is from Tyangboche(probably). The range in the left is Lotsche & Lotsche Sar. Behind that, the little hump is Everest. You were lucky to get such prominent view in the twilight. Waiting to see many more from your EBC album.

M: yes, another creative filter use - I like it so much - some of yours - as I said - would be perfect for the Large Post (LP). Have a look into it... c

Do you bring Hasselblad with you in your treks ?
I guess you do not let porters and yaks to carry for you !
It is a big weight. Amazing lights for one of the most beautiful places in the world.

Well man, you go around the world, as fast as I can say "miketelemark".
Very moody scene, with a monochromatic scent in an amazing place. This could easily be the cover of a book. The place is amazing too of course.
The work of a photographer is at least as much of perspiration as inspiration (in my case a lot more of perspiration), and I'm sure those treks you make (alone in this case) that put you on those wonderfull places, are very demanding...I can see your love in what you do!
