Hi again,

Ok...a little break from fjords, although i know it's not too very different as at this point in our journey we were getting quite close to them :)
To be honest, i don't know the name of this location. I just know it was near a glacier and that we had to drive up a really cool, serpentine road to get to this viewpoint.
Up on top, there was a small parking place and all around it there were hundreds of these rock stacks made by tourists along time that i think enhanced the landscape...well maybe not really enhanced, but definitely made it special, apart.

By the way, if there's anyone here who might know the name of this location (even if i have to show him more photos from here), i'd ask him/her to contact me. I know it's a long shot but i would like to know :)

Hope you'll like it and thanks for visiting :)

Absolutely fantastic use of the slanting morning light, Horia. The effect is magical. Super contrasts and a fine depth of view.
The stone stacks you have placed in the foreground are a common sight on most of the mountain trails in Nepal. They call them cairns. They are kind of memorials sometimes for the trekkers/climbers who perish in the mountains.
TFS and regards.

Splendide. La couleur est vraiment envoutante. Merci

Hello Horia,
Moody sunset light. It is evening light, I guess as the photo info is mentioning 2:55 and exif is saying 6PM while Ram is talking about morning light.
Doesn't really matter as the effect is there.
Amazing landscape.
I saw similar rock stacks in Namibia on arid roads.No erosion. With flat tires.
Well done and thanks for sharing.
