Feeling small
Riding on one of the world's most beautiful roads - The Yunnan Highway. Lhasa to Zhongdian. The road is not flat for a meter, all the time up and down. Two passes over 5000m and over a dozen over 4000m. At some times you're down in pockets of sub-tropical rain forests at 1800m, at others on alpine, ice cold passes.
A challenge for any cyclist!

On the photo, the cyclist is on approx. 3000m, the surrounding peaks are roughly 7000m high.

What a beautiful profile image! I am adding this one to my favorites album! Very beautiful! How many photos did it take to take this? Or did you have a nice zoom out lense? Either way this is among the best of Mbpost! Thank you very much for sharing! Cheers Josh Lewis.

Thanks.
I shot about three or four photos and they were shot with a short zoom. 24-85mm. It wasn't a plan behind the shots. I just stopped and took as many as I could while Nadine was rolling down the hill.

Once looking for a contrasting if not dramatic image with this would definitely be a winner ..
