Dried Lake

One of the coldest shots I have ever taken. Looking across frozen prayer flags to the 'Dried Lake' (5297m/17319 ft) and beyond towards Changtse (7553m/24780 ft) in Tibet. You can see the Khumbu Icefall making its way down to the right of the photo with Everest just off frame to the right. The photo taken from the pre- dawn summit of Kala Pattar (5545m/18192ft) after climbing up with headtorch. Shot taken on Fuji Velvia slide film.
