Himalayan Skies

You may recall me writing something a few posts ago about Ama Dablam being the mountain that looks amazing from all angles. Well, here is me trying to prove that. This is the stunning west face of Ama Dablam, viewed from the hills above Dingboche, in the Khumbu region. Again I was mesmerized by the lingering alpenglow on this Himalayan icon, and proceeded to take several exposures of the fluted peak and its perennial little cloud. This was one of my favourite shooting locations of the entire trip. The giants were at their best that night. Ama Dablam, Nepal.

f/2.8, 10 minutes of exposure, ISO 800, 70.0mm on Canon EF70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM, Canon Mk II body.
