Lovely landscape. Man does indeed appear humble and insignificant in the whole scheme of things!

Good to see you here as well.

magnificent landscape!!…… a hard place to go I believe….. thanks for sharing!!

Though quite aparent that clouds have been pulled back, Nothing takes away from the beauty of the composition and the grand scale of nature

I suspect you are in southern part of Himalayas, as I Presume this is in India, Nepal or thereabouts.
The Northern part of Himalayas are in China.
I would be glad If you could clarify.

Yes it is a verry nice picture:
But i think difrently,
So we can see how small we are,
And still want to be the ruller of the plannet,and fight for a plaece wich we make our selfs .
If we do not live so close to one and other ther will be no serenity and frendship ..
Thats what this picture tells me. LOOK AT THE FOTO WHATS THER TO BE SAEN? PAECE, PAECE.

What a great planet we live on! It’s good that we still must depend on our own two feet to reach those heights.
