Travel photo of the day
Giants Among Giants
We spent three weeks hiking the Himalayas in Nepal. Having had the good fortune of great weather for most of our hike made it almost too easy for some fantastic photos. My wife initially thought I was crazy for backpacking with my large DSLR but the photos prove it was worth the extra weight.
These are just two of my favorites from our hike. One is a panoramic looking across the Khumbu Glacier at Mt Everest and Nuptse. The other shows a Sherpa carrying a basket as he approaches a Gompa, Mt Everest and Lhotse are towering in the background.
