Dawn in the Kingdom by michaelanderson Dawn in the Kingdom by michaelanderson
Thamserku (21,806 ft) towers over the boreal forests of Nepal. Although Nepal is not technically a kingdom anymore, the Himalayan scenery along the trek to Everest Basecamp feels medieval. The peaks are more majestic than your wildest expectations and the friendly villages and cliffside monasteries feel like were dropped there straight out of a storybook. Nepal is that rare place that makes you feel like you are stepping back in time to a simpler era.

Majestic mountains and impressive photo. Excellent choice in including the trees as silhouettes. It adds another dimension to the picture!

At first I didn't like this image very much mostly because the tree patterns at the bottom centre are a bit cluttered without a distinctive shape but I have been coming back at it for a couple of days and it kind of grew on me and I must say I like it quite a lot now. :+fav:

Those peaks are so incredible...almost unbelievable. They are the Rockies (my reference mountains) on steroids. It must be a real treat for the soul to see them in person. Thanks so much for sharing once again Micheal!

Love the sense of depth of distance in the space you can see between the trees, from the trees to the foot of the mountain, very well done!
