Art Challenge- Numbers/Peak

This week's art challenge from 2 Things Blog was a bit more complicated for me as I contemplated what to post about for awhile and came up short... until just a little while ago. I had been looking for days for something interesting to photograph that would match this 2 word interpretation and the only thing I kept spotting was gas prices on billboards as I traveled to run errands all weekend. That wasn't really good enough for me considering I hate looking at them and would care less to photograph the sponge which soaks up much of my money and probably yours... so I had to think of something else. 

Alas, I thought of something more calming. something more cool, relaxing and seemingly perfect for this challenge. I unfortunately could not obtain a photograph myself, so I have utilized one from the Public Domain. 

Mount Everest image found Here

The above image is one of Mount Everest. I chose to share Mount Everest as my submission for the art challenge because I love the mountains. I find them intriguing, breath-taking and almost like nature's towers towards the heavens. This particular Mountain has an elevation of 29,035 feet(8,850 meters), making it the highest mountain in the world. That is one great peak if you ask me. 

a few other fun facts about Mt. Everest:
  • It is has been recorded that the mountain is rising a bit every year as well as moving in a northeastward direction a few inches every year.
  • It has an extreme climate with the summit temperature never rising above a temperature of freezing. 
  • It is located Latitude 27° 59' N  Longitude 86° 56' E
  • The summit ridge separates Nepal and Tibet
  • There have been an estimate of over 4,000 people to attempt to climb Mt. Everest but only about 700 have achieved it.


  1. Mt. Everest is quite the mighty peak indeed! Good idea for this weeks challenge. Bet you wished you could have gone there yourself to take a picture. It's on my list of places to see and shoot. : )

  2. Most definitely a mighty peak! Oh, I would love so much to visit Mount Everest. Even just to fly to the top LOL. I would love to see it in person. It would be spectacular. Definitely on my list as well. Thank you for the lovely comment.

  3. Great entry!
    You know, though, Everest is not on my list. I don't know why, but it's probably that there isn't that much time left and there are still so many things I'd like to see and do, most right here in the US, like the Grand Canyon which is definitely on my list. That glass floor balcony. Gotta go do that one.


Thanks for leaving me a comment! I really appreciate that you've taken the time to let me know you stopped by and read this article. I hope you enjoyed it and I hope you will be back. =) Many blessings!
