The Himalayan mountains are the highest on earth, a great source of wonder for those of us who are unfamiliar with tall mountains. We had a great view of the range including Mount Everest as we flew from Bhutan to Nepal in 2008.
We worked briefly in Kathmandu for a relief organisation, where we could not see the mountains for all the smog blanketing the valley. Then we escaped to Pokara, and fell under the spell of Machapuchare, or Fish Tail. These photos were taken from our little hotel room in the warm valley, looking out onto the end of the Annapurna Range.
We thought our sunset photos were good, but the sunrise was even more wondrous!
