I had in mind as I decided to make a short detour from the trail to Gorak Shep to the nearby moraine in order to shoot the present panorama.
Photos often improve the reality, maybe isolating a pleasant detail, or making the most of a precious light... In this case, I think that the photographic achievement is far inferior to the reality - probably, it does not render properly the impressive size of the surrounding mountains. Nuptse and Pumori are the most prominent, while Everest (which at this point has appeared since a few metres) remains a little bit in the background.

Once again you leave me speechless with one of your breathtaking pictures!

Suggerisco a tutti 
di guardarsi queste panoramiche ascoltando Rutter!!
Ciao, Alvise

Fantastic. And most probably underrepresented by the 500 pixel format here. Might work better in spherical projection on MP. Cheers, Martin

For now, on MP I have submitted one Siula Punta and one Gokyo Ri - but the latter summit is already represented there.
Let us see what happens!
Best, Alberto.
