Description: The mountainous ranges of Nepal, which introduce from world’s highest Mt Everest to other eight peaks above 8000 meters among others, are gradually changing their appearance due to climate change which pose adverse affect on our magnificent Himalayas.

Environmental activists say rising temperatures are rapidly shrinking the Himalayan glaciers from which several Asian rivers originate, threatening the lives of millions of people who depend on them for water.

“Your planet needs you – Unite to combat Climate Change” is theme for this year’s World Environment Day. Seen in the picture: Annparuna Range ‘Mount Gangapurna’ 7,455m and Gangapurna Glacier Lake, Manang.

    Nicely captured landscape. Climate change covers wide range of subjects, starting from Mountains to sea. You have described the issue well. We can see the human existence in the picture. They are vulnerable of global warming and it’s effect. One thing I’d like to add is this picture is more looking like ‘Postcard’ as earlier commented. I think it’d look even better if you could have added some local people in this backdrop.
    Well I have been watching this interesting conversation from the beginning. One interesting incident that I’d like to share. Once I posted one picture of mine in LIN and since the post in LIN was not being added in individual statistics I posted the same pic under ‘Photo blog’ section. Later my pic was removed from LIN and I got one mail from LIN editor regarding the rules of LIN. I accept it happened mistakenly but main reason was the matter of individual intellectual property and also the statistics.
    I think it would be better if admin could link the post in LIN to the individual statistics for the contributors who have valid e-mail ids. I agree with Lenscape and appreciate Shutterbug’s response in this matter. I wish for the betterment of EU and hope these things will be sorted out and every contributors would get equal treatment here in EU.

    Thanks Shutterbug, for responding to my curiosity in your acknowledging comment.

    About the “undue privilege”, yes I had a doubt with a “hopefully not!!” (within brackets…hehe..), in the last para of my comment above. Am pleased with the last para of your comment above which justifies the “hopefully not!!”.

    Hope to see a valid implementation of this “authorship” issue by the LIN Team.

    Thank you all for taking time to comments. Needless to tell, we authors always love to get comments from viewers like you.

    Dear Niraj Sapkota,
    Thank you for the compliments. Well I am just an admirer of ‘Mother Nature’ and I respect her, worship her, praise her by taking pictures. And yes of course, I haven’t missed this opportunity to take panorama of Annapurna mountain range and I am happy to share with you all. Please click the link below.

    Dear Lenscape,
    Issue which you have raised is one of my initial curiosities and I had similar question to Admin for giving me the authorship in all my contributed pictures here in Everest Uncensored. Which I think is the author’s right. My concern at that time was not a big issue (even not yet I guess) but then EU was evolving and still it is. May be it’s time EU Admin should take a peek at the issue which has more to do with the statistics of EU.

    I totally agree with you that all registered user of EU should get authorship in their post and this issue has been popped up few times and still on ‘agenda’ for Admin team to sort out. Not all but most of my posts here in LIN are posted under my authorship because I insisted. I guess this privilege should be given to all other registered contributors as well.

    I being a member of LIN’s Team and author of EU: Viewer’s Verdict here in EU, I do have some privilege but I’ve never tried to make it an ‘undue privilege’ like you’ve doubted. I simply remain a regular ‘photo commentator’ and photo contributor like any other regular registered member of EU.

    Very beautiful and breath-taking. You must be an adventurous traveler besides a good photographer. I wish I could see the whole panorama of Annapurna mountain range. Shutterbug, hope you didn’t miss to take it. Love to see it any day. Keep up your good work.

    My thumbs up for the superb click. And the description is nicely gelled with the caption and the recently observed “World Environment Day”. Flawless - both: the picture and the description.

    By the way, a hyperlink (clicking on the picture) is missing to open the actual sized picture. Hope LIN people will add it, making it consistent with other LIN posts.

    Some Out of the Box Curiosity
    Every post by Shutterbug is uploaded in the name of Administrator and later it is changed to Shutterbug. I have no problem with that. But why is this not done for other contributors?

    At least this can be done for those registered users, who send email to LIN via their registered email ID. If this can’t be done, then why only for Shutterbug.

    May not seem like a big issue, but for me it affects the statistics (No of post by the author), and the search criteria. It is easy to search (i mean technically) the tag fields (author), rather than find the contributor in the description section. Others, when post to LIN are not taken as the author (its only the Administrator), but in case of Shutterbug he is always the author. I find another rare instance of this case where one of Samir Pradhananga’s picture is also authored as LIN Editor.

    This looks to me that there is disparity, or Shutterbug is taking undue privilege (hopefully not!!). LIN Editor, Please respond.

    A Perfect Snap as a POSTCARD. Blue & deep sky has added more life in this Landscape. I am just wondering how would it be the experience staying on the lap of Himalaya & Mountains, huh. Perfect Composition.
