Mount Kangchenjunga (8,586 Mt)

Please don't use this image on websites, blogs or other media without my explicit permission. © All rights reserved

My last travel in Kolkata, West Bengal, Sikkim and Bhutan

 

"Mount Kangchenjunga is the third highest mountain in the world (after Mount Everest and K2), with an elevation of 8,586 metres (28,169 ft). Kangchenjunga translated means "The Five Treasures of Snows", as it contains five peaks, four of them over 8,450 metres. The treasures represent the five repositories of God, which are gold, silver, gems, grain, and holy books. Kangchenjunga is also called Sewalungma in local Limbu language and considered sacred in Kirant religion."

HDR from a single RAW shot

 

I don't like it....... but I've only this shot.........

 

non lo so, ma sto HDR me pare 'na schifezza..........

ma l'originale è peggio ancora, il punto è che questa è l'UNICA foto che ho in cui si vede la montagna, che, come per incanto, si è concessa alla nostra vista per poche decine di secondi, poi è di nuovo sparita in mezzo alle nuvole.
