A '22 degree halo' above Nuptse. This rare phenomenon occurs when there are thin cirrus cloud containing hexagonal ice crystals. The spots just above and below the sun are lens flare, but the colour fringe and darker inner circle are part of the halo effect and are not introduced by the photography process.

The Icefall Doctors
Mingmar Sherpa leads the team out of camp on day one. They were expecting the snow to be "up to shoulder height in some areas". Tough work!
[Update: 7 April 2013. RIP Mingmar Sherpa, aged 45, who lost his life after falling into a crevasse near the top of the icefall. My thoughts are with his wife, Mrs Fur Diki Sherpa, their son and their friends. A collection at Base Camp raised around $3000 for his family and his employer, the SPCC, contributed a further NR150,000.]
World's most dangerous hike? A very scenic walkway in Huang Shan below Lotus Peak. Not sure if this is old, or a new one in development. All other paths trekked were concreted, with concrete railing (luckily!).
