Milky Way above the Himalayas

Photo and caption by Anton Jankovoy

This photo is taken in the highest mountains in the world- Himalayas. On the photo is Mardi Khola valley and beautiful Milky Way above it. The pureness of nature, beauty of the mountains and endless Universe inspired me to take this shot. I find it very sad, that with the lifestyle of the modern humanity, each 1 out of 5 people does not see the Milky Way. In the big cities everybody is rushing to live their lives, without even knowing that wonders exist here, on Earth. Sometimes it's just enough to look up or around to see how wonderful world is.

Location: Nepal, Annapurna Conservation Project Area, Mardi Khola Valley
