Melting Earth

Pretty stupid title, I know, but still, I’m happy to announce that my next submission was voted on interfacelift!

I shot this picture while trekking through the Nepalese Himalayas, actually on a day hike close to the village of Manang, where I stayed for two nights to acclimatize to the respective altitudes I was about to face the next days.

Again, almost 15,000 (!) downloads within the first two days, and counting. At least I think that’s quite amazing.

Here’s the link to ‘Morning Heart‘.

But the real thing to be psyched about is that the wallpaper received almost 20,000 (!) downloads within just four days. Although living is all about enjoying the moment, it’s for some reason a great feeling to know that you’ve just shared one tiny moment with so many other human beings. But of course, not a single one will ever know how great it really felt to actually be there to live that moment.
