Nepal :: Sunrise over Nagarkot

Best viewed LARGE


Easily and by miles the best break of dawn I have ever witnessed ! Fog in the valley below, faintly kissed by the nascent light rising over the Himalayan range , just blew me out. Coupled with some 1 - 2 deg C or maybe lower was a setting that rests one's mind.


I found the wet stone roof , glistening as a great foreground , coupled with the chimney gave the composition a bit of a lift.
