Photographer's Note

Taken early morning from the roof of the Stay-well guesthouse in Pokhara, western Nepal, looking towards Fishtail Mt (Machapuchare), just under 7000 m high (6993m or 21,000 '). The valleys are still in shadow until the sun rises higher during the day. Fishtail Mt has never been climbed, as the locals are superstititious & Western mountaineers cannot ascend without their help, &/or respect their wishes. It looks a bit like the Matterhorn from this angle, but does resemble a fishtail from other angles. Fishtail Mt is in the Annapurnas, a western extension of the Himalayas.

One for Norbert's song titles? (James Taylor)

Does anyone know which province Pokhara is in?There are 6 Pokharas in Nepal, which I never knew before. I'm guessing Gandaki. Polarized, & from a scanned print. Sharpened 3 times already.

Annapurna Range has 6 major peaks, of which Fishtail Mt is only 1. It's actually one of the 'smaller' peaks, but appears larger from Pokhara, because it's closer. It's still 20 km away though, which is why it's probably not pin-sharp. (haze). I have posted an earlier image, which shows some of the other peaks from 'Sarankot'.
