Cairns of Gokyo

Cairns are plentiful throughout the Himalaya, but even more so in the area surrounding the village of Gokyo, where one finds them virtually everywhere. This one sits on the shore of the third Gokyo Lake, at an elevation of approximately 4,800m above sea level. Below is a B&W version of the same shot. I could not decide which one I liked best so I am posting both. Thanks for visiting!
f/11.0, 1/45, ISO 320, 17.0mm on Canon EF17-40mm f/4L USM, Mk II Body.
