[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Rakaposhi peak (7788 m.) from Eagle's Nest (Duikar) close to Karimabad.
This is a view point from where is possible to have fantastic views of some peaks among the highest in the Pakistan and in the world.
Rakaposhi mountain in the Karakoram mountain range in Pakistan.
It is situated in the Nagar Valley approximately 100 km north of the city of Gilgit. Rakaposhi means "shining wall" in the local language. Rakaposhi is also known as Rakaposhi Peak. Rakapushi and Dumani ("Mother of Mist"). It is ranked 27th highest in the world and 12th highest in Pakistan, but it is more popular for its beauty than its rank might suggest and is said to be one of the most beautiful mountains in the world.
Rakaposhi was first climbed in 1958 by Mike Banks and Tom Patey, members of a British-Pakistani expedition, via the Southwest Spur/Ridge route.

The subject in this shot is the light as much as it is the mountain. It is quite beautiful. You exposed it well.
