Geminids meteors above a temple in Himalayas

This picture recorded all Geminids meteors I shot that night in the Himalayas area. Because of the moonlight, the roof of the temple and the snowy mountains looked like to be dyed with golden color. We can find the 8201-meter Mount Cho Oyu and the 8848-meter Mount Qomolangma in the photo.
