Lhotse. The last 8000
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Lhotse is the fourth highest mountain in the world. Its long east-west crest is located immediately south of Everest. The main summit of Lhotse (8501m) was first climbed in 1956, another one called Lhotse Shar (8386m) - in 1970, and the world's last peak over 8000m - Lhotse East (8414m) - gave up to Russian mounaineers in 2001. Standing under Lhotse's almost vertical wall is the deepest experience of what's mistakingly called the Everest Base Camp trek in Humbu region of Nepal.|

Excelent view and scenery. A beautiful composition. Well done.
That is "grandiose". Very nice pic. Light, contrast and clouds form a pleasing picture.
Nice shot, but a larger post would be better for my taste.
Ohh man , you really wanna make me feel miserable I am not with you. I would probably cry if I was you there (dont tell anyone !).
Thank you for putting together all these 8000 serie together ( I bow to thy, oh great guru ...).
Your pics are really awesome ... Ohh man I am shivering just sketching the climbing routes ...
P.S. Can you tell I am a mountaineer :=) ?
