A landscape for a change.
This place in my native district Chamba in Himachal Pradesh, India, is located at an altitude of 8000 feet. The vegetation is alpine and it snows heavily here during winters.
I shot this image in August 2004 with my Sony Cybershot S50. That was my first digital camera.

Hope you find it of some interest.

Hello Ram,
A lovely landscape!
For me it is amazing to see the dense forest at this altitude, as the tree line in my place is between 3-4000 feet...
A well composed presentation, fine feeling of depth...
Attractive colour palette!

Buena presentación amigo.
Saludos, JL.

Hello Ram!

I really like this landscape. Green mountains looks [in my opinion] much better than naked peaks :-) Lovely composition of colours - blue sky and green mountains. Beautifull place to live.

Hello Ram
Another impressive lanscape from your country. Beautiful place
Very best wishes

Hello Ram,
Beautiful landscape. Great pov and composition. The blue sky and cloud formation complement the great mountain range nicely. Very well done.

Hello Ram,
a nice landscape shot taken with your first digital camera.
There is great foreground, middle and BG interest.
A good composition using the Rule of Thirds by placing the clump of trees in the bottom right point.
Good sharpness and detail.
--- The sky is slightly OE... a double exposure would have stopped this.
Nevertheless this photo is very good :)
Well done,

And what a beautiful landscape, Ram! It must be a marvellous place, so green and peaceful. I like a lot the sky too with those impressive clouds.
A wonderful shot for a humble Sony Cybershot S50.

Hello Ram,
It is surprising to see all this vegetation at 8,000 feet.
Here in NZ the tree line is often at around 3,000 - 4,000 feet
At this altitude in New Zealand there are only very small alpine shrubs or bare rock.
A very educational shot for me.

Hello Ram,
A very impressive landscape, wonderful colours, excellent dof, very nice work congrats, Rick :)

hello Ram,
Really when I look at this place it reminds me so much of the one I'm from. It's amazing how places sometimes can have the same atmopsphere and a very similar aspect. I think I would feel at home at this place.
Thanks so much and best regards

Hello Ram,
This is certainly well worth seeing as apart from the fine view this landscape depicts, it makes one think of all the wildlife, insect, plant bird and other that this area must hold. Fine quality image for an early digital, as well as a pleasing composition.
Well done and thaks for sharing a view of your beautiful home area.
Best wishes, Ivan

Hello Ram,
Wonderful capture of these green mountains. I like the poiont of view with the stony ground in the foreground and the row of pine trees below. Beautiful cloud formations too.
