[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is the mystic aerial panoramic view which you will come across while going to Ram Thakur's native place in Himachal from Pathankot. The photograph is clicked from Bakloh, which is situated at an altitude of approximately 4500 feet ASL.

What you see here is the beautifully carved ravines from the tributaries of river Ravi & far away a glimpse of the famous river Ravi's reservoir. Ravi then flows along the Indo-Pak border for some distance before entering Pakistan and joining the Chenab river. The total length of the river is about 720 km. The waters of the Ravi river are allocated to India under the Indus Waters Treaty between India and Pakistan and the resulting Indus Basin Project. It is also called 'The river of Lahore' since that great city is located on its eastern bank. Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ravi_River

Indeed you are quite right Dr Ranjan! There is a quasi mystical quality to the image. A foreboding yet somehow calling out for me. India is one of the top places I would like to visit for it's natural beauty, colour, tastes, smells and sounds..not to forget it's 6th sense..the third eye...pineal gland eh? Very nice image Dr.!

Hi Subhash,

I'm sure Ram will appreciate this dedication! I love seeing scenes of India - each time I do I hope I will be able to make a return trip. A beautiful composition with the trees in the foreground and the mountains fading into the background. Lovely shot.


Nice panaromic view and note.

hello Subhash

superb landscape shot of these mountains,
i love the very fine POV of your image,
from where you clicked the image
you are dominating these great Moutains,
superb view on the mountains, TFS


Thanks for the dedication of this landscape image from my native place to me, Subhash. The panorama has great depth of view.
These formations have always fascinated me and you have got them in the right perspective.

Hello Subhash nice shot and nice view. The landscape with nice lighting and shadow lifting the picture. Good work. ganesh

Incredible Shot, Subhash. The background looks very hazy, but that may be a result of human or other pollutants in the air. Impressive. Personally, I'd love to see where the places you are shooting are within India. If you can determine lat/longs, you could give viewers a link to the Google map within your post... that would be awesome! Thanks for sharing, Sir.
