[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Today I returned to Jammu after 2 days' visit to my native place in district Chamba of Himachal Pradesh. It is a 5 hours journey by road.
We've had severe winter this year with heavy snow fall in the Himalayan region. This mountain in the picture is a part of the Lesser Himalayas located in the north western region of India. These mountains are not very high with highest altitudes in the range of 18000 to 20000 feet. They spread over the States of Jammu & Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarkhand.
The view was captured on the morning of February 17 on a bright and sunny day. I have taken many more pictures of these mountains and I intend to post larger versions of them in the near future.
Thanks for passing by.

Nothing matches them in grandeur and you, sir, have captured a part of them which is beautiful and grand as ever grand can be. I am really impressed by the scene and your sense of aestheticism. Thanks a lot for sharing a part of your fantastic world with us, take care,

Hello Ram,
A beautiful scene indeed, and one that I'm sure you never get tired of viewing. The snow covered mountains look both very rugged and intriguing as they stand majestically in the suns rays. Great shot!!
We have nothing in Ohio that we can even compare to this type of terrain. This is more like the landscape you would encounter in our western states. Our Winter has been brutal also with lots of snow and extremely low temperatures for our area.

Hello Ram,
I love this scene....amazing and impressive mountains, covered with snow....The details and depth of field are excellent.
