Amazing cloud formations occurring over the Lhotse Wall.

I did some research and it looks like these are Kelvin-Helmholtz clouds, which are quite rare. They only lasted for minutes and I was lucky to be able to get some shots of them before they were gone.

Colours in the void

In Buddhist culture, prayer flags are strung up everywhere to bring good luck/peace etc. They especially like to put them on top of mountain passes and peaks. The ones in these photos were found on top of Gokyo Ri.

There are five colours each representing a different element of nature: 

Red for fire, green for wood, yellow for metal, white for water, and blue for space/sky.
