Gokyo Lakes

in photofeed •  last month 

"When you stand at the high passes of the Himalayas, is it the flag that moves and flutters? Or is it the wind ? Neither, it is your mind " Hui Neng, 6th Buddhist patriarch of China (713 AD).

Looking over the third Gokyo lake, trying to catch ones breath in the thin air. The Gokyo lakes sit between 4700 and 5000m (15,400 to 16,400 ft) above sea level are the world’s highest freshwater lake system consisting of six main lakes. Shot taken on Fuji Velvia slide film. Nepal

I am super bullish on what is happening with steem at the moment. So much development activity.

Wow that is a really breath-taking view!


Nice, contrasty shot. I take it that's a lake in the mid-ground? Interesting to see the clouds cut off like that.

Yes its a lake; but at 5k meters so the clouds just hover about it.

Stunning view

Beautiful work- I'm in Virginia and always trying to predict cloud cover like that on the Blue Ridge. Self portrait?

Thanks. It is my wife ;-)
