The story behind "Panorama of Nepalese Himalaya with Everest from Namche Bazaar"

This is a composite image, I think from 6 or 7 images, covering about 180 degrees from a windy hilltop in the Khumbu Valley, taking with a Canon EOS5 and probably the 50mm or 70mm lens. To teh left, lovely village Khumjung can be seen, subject of a prevous photoseries on ExposedPlanet.com. Nuptse and Lhotse can be seen, but Everest is just a small peak in the distance, recognizable only because of the ever present snow-plume of her summit. Also beautiful Ama Dablam can clearly be seen, the solitary peak aiming for the heavens above, but the rest of the valley and the surrounding mountains are just as breathtaking, but maybe that was because of the quick hike up to 3800m in order to be able to see this wonderful panorama :)

Extra large size as a way to say: Merry Christmas everybody!
