At the gates of heaven..

Tibet
From Lasa and after a four hours tiring but unforgettable journey, on a wrecked..wooden bus that struggled it's way through strenuous roads, endlessly mounting and mounting, finally we reached a plateau at nearly 4000 m altitude...The spectacle of the lake in front of our eyes was a life's memory!...
Despite measures taken, breathing remained normal provided you walked as slowly as...Neil Armstrong on the moon surface.Forget about rushing. Even the photography sac was a real burden.What I shall never forget were the clouds. The clouds in all the trip in Tibet.
(The photo is in Fuji Reala 120, 6,5x4,5, film negative, scanned later to digital).

    water that looks almost solid, like a turquoise gem!! the picture and the accompanying text give us an inkling of what a spectacular and, quite literally speaking, "breathtaking" experience this trip into the tibetan clouds must have been! greetings, sabine.

    A truly amazing place and well worth that arduous journey to see this stupendous view. The title you have given to this beautiful scene is perfect, that magnificent cloud formation is superb. This really is a place to remember always.
