[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

Yesterday, my friend Pablo Minto from Norway shared with us a picture of the sky as it looked at 1.29 P.M. in his country on December 9, 2006.

Today I also share a picture of the sky as it looked at 7.31 P.M. in my country on August 21, 2006 at the end of a rain soaked day.

This picture is my humble dedication to Pablo -- the landscape artist par excellence on the TN.
Though it lacks the finesse of his inimitable work, it appears that I shot it in an unconscious emulation (or should I say 'imitation'?) of his style.

Since there is no rule in TOS regarding the limit of dedications, I intend to keep on doing them until everyone is fed up of them :-)!

Regards to all.

Hello Ram,
beautiful depth in the dark parts, very nice to see the clouds rising from the monsoon soaked valleys of Himachal Pradesh into a clear blue sky.
Namaste, dear friend. Best regards from the finally snow covered Alps.

Wonderful sky Ram! i love the blue tones and cloud patches. Great cadrage and that alone tree made me think about that.
Thank you my friend!

Hello Ram
Beautiful photo. I like the pictures of the sky and clounds. These on is great. I like vivid blue and delicate composition made of clouds. Very good idea with a white frame.
Very best wishes

Hi Ram, great sky with lovely clouds and delicate colors, very well done, have a nice week end, ciao Silvio

Hola Ram,
Bonita toma, bella composición, buena saturación de color. Un cordial saludo

Hello Ram,
I'm a bit embarrassed here, by your too kind words..!
Seems like you know your trade when it comes to capturing great sky images... This is very well framed with the rightfully big emphasis to the sky!
We can almost see the humidity here, and the clouds and higher altitudes show nice details in the last rays from the setting sun...
Effective inclusion of ground, where I notice the single tiny tree!

Hello Mr Thakur,
The blue sky with white clouds makes good site for photographers.

looking at the sky changing its mood and colours every minit (specially during the sunrise & sunset)is a nice experience.
well composed & framed beautifully,
well done,
tfs & regards

Hi Ram,
This really looks like a Pablo style shot. You got me confused for a while when I saw it. I really like the curved shape of those colors. Wonderful colors and exposure. A very worthy dedication to a wonderful man.
