I left the climbers hut after a cold night at 5000M and started over Thorung La Pass in Nepal. My head was spinning from the thin air but I looked back down the mountain and saw this vista which took my breath away. I decided to make the effort to pull my camera out of the backpack to photograph the scene. From the exhaustion, I didn't know there were a flock of birds in the photo until I viewed it later at home.
