Snapshot Sunday: Sunrise In the Land of Giants

Annapurna Himalayan Range
Sunrise over the Annapurna Himalayan Range - Tadapani, Nepal

With peaks soaring nearly twice as high as the tallest mountains in the continental U.S., the peaks of the Annapurna Range in Nepal dominate the skyline. Taken moments before sunrise, this photo captures the holy mountain of Machhapuchhre (aka “Fishtail”) at 22,943 ft, and the great peaks of Annapurna South (23,684 ft.) and Annapurna I (26,545 ft.), the 10th highest mountain in the world.
