The Annapurna Range

The full moon rising over Machapuchhre and the Annapurna range from Poon Hill on the Annapurna trek. Poon Hill is a popualr viewpoint on this trek. Nearly everyone goes up there for the sunrise but I was more interested in the late light on the Annapurnas so went up there an hour before the sunset. The cloud was about 100 metres below the top of the hill and we were on an island in a sea of mist. There was a handful of people up there and by the time I took this everyone had left. I waited for the moon to clear the mountains then took this image. There was still a soft alpenglow from the mountains which gives the mountains an almost mystical look as they rise up out of the mist.
