Phewan Sunrise

1st place
Sunrise at Phewa Lake, Pokhara, Nepal, January 2013. Early in the morning the lake is almost deserted, with most tourists traveling instead to the mountains to watch the sunrise. At the lake a dense low lying mist clung closely to the surface of the still water and colourful tour boats remained silent at the bank. It was a wonderfully tranquil morning.
