I had to dig the archives to find a picture for today’s sky watch and the best place to dig is my Everest Base Camp Trek folder. I am looking forward to May 2013 when I can go and trek in Nepal again. Nothing fixed yet (way too early I guess) but I do want to go.
And whenever I look at this picture I kick myself. There was so much happening. It was early in the morning, there was water on the ground that was catching light, there was a big peak ahead and all I could capture was this! I like it still but it is not a patch on what the eyes saw.
Do check out the Sky Watch page for some amazing sky pictures. Better still share your own.
Even though I did see a rainbow this week I didn’t had the patience to hold it for the skywatch. So for the Sky Watch I once again fall back on the Everest Base Camp pictures from Nepal. And I am already getting very restless for the next trip which unfortunately I have not planned.
Share your sky pictures on the Sky Watch page and have fun browsing through the collection.
There was a lot of drama in today’s sky but I driving back home at that time. By the time I reached home the skies were quieter. So I fall back on my trek pictures once again! I need not say which trek.
This is the majestic Ama Dablam as seen from Dingboche in Nepal. I was here as I was trekking up to the Everest Base Camp. The place is accessible by foot only. I remember asking my guide if the locals would prefer a road through the region. His response was that it would destroy the tourism in the region and hence the livelihoods.
I took this shot early in the morning and in spite of wearing a down jacket I was frozen solid after a while. But what beautiful days those were!
