    I\'ve just discovered your photoblog, you have some amazing photos here, really beautiful & inspiring, with great commentary. I really like this image, the way the cloud seems to separate the serenity of these beautiful peaks from everything that goes on in the world below. Look forward to seeing a lot more.

The story behind "Makalu from the third step on Everest"

Makalu is the 5th highest mountain on earth. Looking down on it means you are higher, in this case about the 3rd ‘Step’ on Everest.
Seeing the sunrise chasing away the nightly cold over the cloud sea is incredible and makes you feel more alive than ever, even when being in the center of the ‘Death Zone’..
