4am @ 5400m on the route up Kala Patthar.
One of the most extraordinary sunrises I am sure I will ever see.

The valley below is the Kumbu Glacier which is just out of shot.
Worth a look at the large version if you get the chance.

Thanks again for all the comments on this series. Smile

Cheers, Paul

Another amazing shot, just love the way the light is clipping the top of the distant mountain. I’ve been looking a your portfolio and for my money it’s one of if not the best on EPZ

Paul, out of this world and the sort of picture you see selling in the shops. By the way, I can't see the large version which normally pops up when logged in which is a shame. Chris

it doesn't look real as if the sky is added later by the way the sharp edges are almost too sharp. i expect that its a product of the distintly different exposure values for the two elements. i like it though would have preferred to see more below.
