Hi David
I see this as one of those simple but eligant images. Moody and humbling in the size of the valley.

Thanks for the continued visits to my on going Road Trip.


Hello David,

Like this color tones. A typical from Himalaya...Karakoram range.
Nice POV and composition. TFS


Fabulous landscape of Tibet and well captured David.
And good work as HDR, I will add it to my theme of HDR.
Nice monochromatic image where it conveys the natural beauty of the place.

Very well done, Yan :)
ps: Thx for the crit on: "Rockliffe Promenade in Autumn".
