Ama Dablam, 22,493 ft. (6,856 m), as seen from the village of Khumjung.

Growing up, Ama Dablam was always one of my favorite mountains. We spent two nights acclimatizing in Khumjung, and some of the best clouds of the trek rolled in on the afternoon of our rest day. After seeing so many amazing images of this mountain over the years, it was almost surreal for me to be standing there taking photographs that evening. The fast moving clouds and later afternoon light made for great long exposure opportunities.
