[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This photograph is clicked during sunrise time showing twilight over Dalhousie from Bakloh. The hill station of Dalhousie is full of 'Old world' charm and holds lingering echoes of the colonial British Rule in India. It covers an area of about 14 sq. km and is built on five hills - Kathlog, Potreyn, Tehra, Bakrota and Balun.

It is name after the British Governor - General of the l9th century, Lord Dalhousie. The town's height varies between 1,525 m and 2,378m, and it is surrounded by varied vegetation - pines, dodders, oaks and flowering rhododendron.

Dalhousie has charming colonial architecture, including some beautiful churches. Its location presents panoramic views of the plains - and like a long silverline, the river Ravi twists and turns below Dalhousie. The spectacular snow-covered Dhauladhar mountains are also visible from this enchanting town.

A familiar point of view for me, Subhash.
The sky is truly magnificent in this early morning sunrise picture.
It contrasts well with the twilight zone of shadows in the valleys below.
Thanks for shring the image and looking forward to seeing more from the region.

I love this. Very well captured. Sunrises and sunsets are my favorites.
