Para-gliders - Pokhara

Posted by
: Helen : (Helen is photographing in Melbourne,, Australia) on 7 August 2014 in Landscape & Rural.

I took this photo from the lake in Pokhara, Nepal. It was a glorious day. I lounged back in the canoe watching the para-gliders swirling on the air currents produced by the nearby mountains. Situated alongside the Annapurna mountain, Pokhara boasts three out of the ten highest mountains in the world — Dhaulagiri, Annapurna 1 and Manaslu; all less than 50 kms or 30 miles away.

Canon EOS 5D Mark III 1/640 second F/7.1 ISO 100 200 mm

I will respond to your kind comments as soon as I can. Thanks for dropping by!
