18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Himalayan spiritual twilight high

Mt Everest, Lhotse, & Ama Dublam from Tengboche Stupa & the main Monastery entrance at twilight. After leaving the monk's evening chants at the Tengboche Monastery there were clouds blocking the view of the mountains. I decided to stay there on the steps leading into the monastery and wait for the clouds to depart as twilight evolved, eventually moving away from the steps to the side of the stupa with the main entrance in the frame as well. Faint stars can be seen in the sky.
