The Edge of the Day

Posted in response to the Daily Post weekly photo challenge. This week’s theme ‘Edge’

Lots of soft mountain edges as the sun rose over the Annurpurna range in Nepal.  I had to get up very, very early in the morning and take a treacherous drive for this…hope you appreciate it!!  It was the most gorgeous and unforgettable experience though 🙂

Three Views of Phewa Lake, Pokhara, Nepal

You can take a peaceful boat ride from the town of Pokhara which is strung along the shore of lovely Phewa Lake. If you wish the boats will drop you at the little island where the Taal Barahi Temple stands.

Shanti Stupa, Pokhara, Nepal

This beautiful Buddhist Peace Pagoda is set high on a hill overlooking Pokhara. I’m afraid we chickened out and took a hair-raising taxi ride to the top. But so worth it, for the peace, the clean clear air, and the views of the mountains with Pokhara laid out like a tablecloth beneath them. Gorgeous.
