Biggest temple in the world is Borobudur, located not more than 30 km from city of Yogyakarta. It is a popular tourist destination especially for it's sunrise viewings. Some mornings are just more stormy then others or sometimes more crowded. To get an "empty" shot can be sometimes challenging.

Avalanche on Fish Tail
I was lucky to get this one. All the mountains in this region are very avalanche prone. Distant rumbling of avalanches is quite common in the night. This one on Machapuchare (or Fish Tail) happened in bright sunlight and it sounded like all hell broke loose.

Sunset in Bagan
