I'm putting this on to mark the 60th anniversary of the first ascent of Everest. This is taken from just below the south summit at sunrise. Makalu is the mountain on the left and Lhotse is on the right. The south col and the route up to this vantage point are visible below. A sunrise from near the top of the world is a spectacular thing to witness...

That's just about the best photo of Lhotse I've seen.

Nice picture. And interesting, as I remember searching around those rocks late one evening in 1988, on the way back from the summit, before settling down somewhere there to spend a night out in the open.
