Photo taken by Thirdeyemom, who experienced severe postpartum depression after the birth of her first child. It was a terrifying, isolating experience for her, which included terrible insomnia and hallucinations. Thankfully with the help of doctors and family, one week after her son’s first birthday she was able to board a plane to South Africa, resuming her love of travel. Through traveling, writing, and photography she began to see the beauty of the world again.
About this photo: “This photo was taken on the first evening that we arrived in beautiful, remote Manang, Nepal. We had hiked for eight days and it had finally snowed! The effect of the sun light hitting the clouds and the freshly white snow made my heart melt. It was so utterly beautiful and I felt so peaceful at this moment. I love mountains and being outside in nature makes me feel like so alive.“
