Entry Description

Himalayas, found this pond after I came down a pass at 17,000 feet. Though small the barren mountains and the beautiful untouched lake made me sit and wait for that last light on top of the hill as if it was a crown of the King shining on top of the hill waiting for another beautiful day to end.
