    Long exposure of the mountain Nuptse in Nepal just after sunset. I had packed up and was heading back down to the town of Gorak Shep from Kala Patthar after watching the sun set on Mt Everest, when I was attracted to the eerie colours on Nuptse. I really wanted to stay and capture some star trails, however the cold was setting in and the lack of light would have made the descent quite dangerous.

    Beautiful light - you've caught some great detail in the snow on the peaks at that time of day. The colour sets it off perfectly. I like this shot very much.

    Nice. If after some critique, i would say the image definitely needs something to bring the size of the mountain intro proportion -> something in the foreground perhaps, like a person or plant. Then again i guess it's a telephoto of the peak making that hard to implement.

    Critique always welcome, and I definitely understand what you're saying. However I guess in this photo I wanted to focus on the peak to emphasize the colour transition, and the texture in the snow.

    Here's one of Ama Dablam, the sense of scale from the trees in the foreground does add a level of grandeur.

    Don't think I've ever been disappointed from any of your images threads, tomtom :)

    I've only once been close to one of the massive natural wonders and not even the eye can reveal the scale of these things. The mind seems to reject how far away it is so that the size is within human comprehension.

    Yes, sometimes it's all too much to take in, you really have to be there!
