Skywatch Friday - Annapurna Base Camp

Happy Friday!!

This week's photo is from Nepal. I set up my tripod to take a self-photo of me and my buddies on arrival at the Annapurna Base Camp in Nepal...From left to right are my friends Dave and Greg, and that is me on the right. I was very nervous sitting there...what is difficult to see in the photo is the 2000 foot drop straight down just to my left...

Be sure to check out all the other beautiful skies from around the world HERE...

Everything about this photograph is amazing: the colours, setting, composition, and looking at it moves me physically - as do most of your beautiful photographs!

Oh... oh my.

I'm feeling the drop. I'm leaning just a tad to the other side for you - thank goodness no one lost their balance. ;)

I would have had to crawl out there on my belly and I definitely would be the guy furthest from the edge !! Beautiful...but scary....
