15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Icicles in the Himalayas

Macchapucchre Mountain, Nepal. We had learnt the best weather during our Mardi Himal trek was to be had at sunrise, which unfortunately meant getting up at 05:30am in 10 degF. The clear blue skies, and the orange peaks that were illuminated one by one as the sun came up, which made for some wonderful photographs.
