Sriharsha Ganjam
Interesting to see so much power vested in some thing no bigger than Dots in the grand scheme of things

This image was made way back in 2007 on my trek to the Everest Base Camp at the Khumbhu Ice Fall.

This was the Malaysian Team attempting the Ice fall to head to the Advanced Base Camp 1. There were 20 members in that team and 5 of them Summitted the peak with no casualties. They were lucky!

Thanks for looking

There would be some beauties only visible to a handful, you indeed are so lucky that you saw it all with your own eyes Harsha. This is like seeing and understanding the meaning of LIFE through a journey. Conquests and journeys of life... finally perhaps helps to understand, learn and respect. I can feel the amount of dedication, will power and discipline you have accumulated for even attempting something like this. Kudos my friend.

Sriharsha, interesting thoughts there ! I think if the idea is to "conquer" then you are right. For some it may be just a "challenge". Oh, yes the image portrays how "small" we are..

On another note, what was the height of this place ? Very interesting patterns of snow, looks like a river which froze instantly :-), some portions of the snow have those wave like formations. Is this location in Nepal ?

Thanks everybody. Nilanjan Khumbu ice fall is approx 18000 ft above the sea level. Not sure about the wave pattern of the glacier though, but I guess its due to its composition of 100% ice unlike other glacier which have rocks and boulders. And this is in Nepal and one of the thoughest things I have ever done in my life for the sheer amount of effort put to complete the 3 week trek. It was a journey of self discovery for me in many was and I am glad it did it when I did. Photography was new skill to me at that time and taking pictures was number 2 priority. I guess the situation is a little different now but I dont think I can go now.

Excellent image Harsha, truly captures the spirit of man in nature. Amazing exposure and the textures add a lot.

A creative mind is a restless soul...

Great one Harsha, wonderful exposure. Scale, spirit, has conveyed a lot as Ganesh said.

Fantastic sense of scale this Image provides, it indeed makes us look and feel small.
