Re: I only...

Hi Rick and Stefano, thanks for the compliments. Problem with bigger posting is that I sell this image as print and posting it here would give away a lot of rights according to some SP small print. But as requested I have made a wallpaper version which I will post here (download link)on my own site, so it does not fall under the SP rules. To be clear, this image in all its forms is copyrighted, I also added my url as a watermark which might make the image uglier. Sorry to be so anal about it, bad experiences makes one careful... Enjoy the wallpaper!
Note: clicking the link will likely give a 403 error (against hotlinking), so just copy and paste the URL of the wallpaper in your browser's address bar directly, that will work:

Hey Harry,

That website is gorgeous, I just wasted my morning on it :-) Thanks for sharing this photo and others, and you are absolutely right to protect an image like this with some copyright notices.

Cheers,

Rick

Re: I only...

Hi Allari, I have added it to the prints section, you can now buy this one online here at Imagekind, where you can choose size, framing, canvas etc.

Note: I have not seen it on the largest size myself as my copy is 30x45cm (12x18 inch) and that looks very nice. Though the resolution is large enough for a much larger print, the image might not be sharp enough as it was only shot at 1/50th with 50mm lens (and -20 degrees :), though you will not notice this from a normal viewing distance. Thanks in advance!

I agree...

...this is outstanding. It is not only a fantastic scenery and a remote landscape, but you have also done a great job shooting it. Very nice!

Re: Incredible!

thanks for your comments everybody, really appreciate it. By the way, not sure if you noticed it, but in the back is Kanchenjunga, the 3rd highest mountain in the world. Truly a wonderful place.

Maybe because of clouds below, it seems like some 4000m peak...but it's false...anyway, this is gorgeous photo!!

Superb!

Superb shot, thanks for sharing. I share Allari's view that I would be interested in buying a poster of it. Your website is superb but this one does not appear to be for sale?
