Two Sunsets…

Here are two of my favourite photographs –

"The Tangerine Mountain"

Mt. Everest painted in vibrant orange and muave...

One is the sun setting onto Mt. Everest! Back in November 2006 I was trekking to the base camp of Mt. Everest. I stepped outside Gomba Lodge in Tengboche – to appreciate the freezing cold and the rising mist, when Lo and behold! I catch a brief glimpse of a muted orange sky. I quickly take this picture and then walk into the lodge. My fellow-travelers rush out after seeing it in hope that they can get a great shot too, but alas the mighty Sagarmatha has disappeared behind the clouds. I was truly blessed!

"Peek-a-boo"

Peek-a-boo ...An everyday sight at the Maldives?

The other is the sun setting into the gorgeous Maldivian Sea. Cumulus clouds were splashed across the sky – which made the sunset all the more exciting. The sun played a little peek-a-boo here, but hidden in there was it omniscient as ever!
