Cho Oyu from Gokyo,
Nepal.

Cho Oyu (8201m) the sixth highest mountain in the world as seen from Gokyo Lakes. Haven't seen any night shots of Cho Oyu on 500px so I thought I'd put one up.

I woke up early on this morning to go to the toilet and thought I'd take some shots while I was up. All I had on my feet were sandles and as I was kneeling down to compose this shot the sandles snapped in half from being frozen. It was a very cold walk back to the lodge in bare feet!!!

This is a two images focus stack, one for the snow and one for the mountains/stars
