The Grasp of Dawn by Dee-T The Grasp of Dawn by Dee-T
Annapurna South
Nepal

One of the most popular walks in the Annapurna region is the walk to Poon Hill and Ghorepani for views of the Annapurna Range and Dhauligiri. Our walk to the Annapurna Base Camp detoured past this spot where the clouds obscured most of the view but when the mountains came into sight, it was nothing short of breathtaking. With the distant mountains towering several kilometers above our altitude, carrying the tripod and long lenses and extender was well worth the extra weight.

you'd be surprised - from this spot at 3200m, the conditions were still quite subtropical during the day - probably about 5 degrees that morning - only battery life was an issue
