Photo of the Week: Gauri Shankar (Nepal)

As our group sat in our tents, a warming cup of tea trying to fend the biting cold wind, the last vestiges of yellowish sunlight glistens against the giant 7000 metre Gauri Shankar. Small chortens of stones pay respect to this elegant giant that stood guard over our small trekking group for the evening. As the light changed, Guari Shankar changed mood, the dark rock walls and vivid white snow being replaced by a subtle yellow in the evening moon light.

The light in the mountains seems to change all the time, now golden, now dark

@donna: Truly mesmerising. Even the Nepalese porters seemed a little moved by the beauty of this particular mountain.

@heather: I loved the way the light kept changing.
