Award Winner | Photo of the Day | September 24, 2012
Tilicho Lake is the World’s highest lake with an altitude of 4919 meters, situated in the Annapurna range of Central Nepal Himalaya. Spending the afternoon here, I took many photos from many vantage points until I came across what appeared to me the shape of a heart. I was amazed at the beauty and color of this lake and the peacefulness that it brought to my heart.
