Lhotse Dreams

This is an image from the Khumbu region of Nepal. After a day of exploring in the Dingboche area I scrambled down to the banks of the Imja River to watch the last light on Lhotse, the world’s 4th highest mountain at 8,516m. I found a composition I liked and took several photographs of the last light on the peak, but as was often the case on that trip I ended up preferring the dusk shots. A perfect evening in the land of the giants. I was amazed at how long the alpenglow lingers on those Himalayan faces. Lhotse from Dingboche, Nepal.
