Friends, I eventually succeeded in posting the LP version of this picture. Earlier, I was finding this option missing in the 'Manage' area.
This is the picture of Pir Panjal Range that makes a backdrop to my native place in Himachal Pradesh.
Hope you like it in the large format.
BTW, I shot this landscape using my 100mm macro lens :-).
Thanks for dropping by.

Hello Ram,
This is another of your fine landscape picture. Great to see a wide format from 100mm macro lens. Have a nice weekend.

Privet, ram,
Excellent mounting landscape! So differents areas. Well done! Good panoramic composition!

Hi Ram,
a truly phantastic sight, this Pir Panjal mountain range. The panoramic view gives the breathtaking perspective. With the macro lens! Did you have to stitch several pictures together or is this just one enhanced picture? Whatever, it's a great view.
Best regards

Hello Ram,

Beautiful photo, impressive depth and "we can almost breathe the peace of the place" Beautiful post, thanks!

Hello Rham,
What an impressive landscape! I imagine that you just can admire these mountains for hours, just looking...I just can feel the joy you had to be there. It's like to be close to heaven.
Amazing the sharpness you could reach with your macro-lens! A breath-taking Large Version! Thanks so much for it.
Kind regards

You remind us that a certain type of lens does not have to be used for its main purpose Ram.
You used your 100 mm macro very well in taking this superb Himalayan panorama, the snow covered mountain range making a fine backdrop to the tree-covered and bare hill slopes in the FG and it is nice to see the whole as well as the details in the large format taken with excellent sharpness and colours.
Thanks best wishes to you and your family,

Hello Ram,

This picture breathes! The large version is beautiful. Thanks for this horizon.

Have a nice day


Dear Mr. Thakur,

What a breathtaking view of the Pir Panjal Range! The colors are superb and you definately got the best weather conditions!

Great sharpness and very well chosen POV, collevctively make this picture a wonderful one. The contrast between the tree-covered hill and the snow covered mountains, is superbly shown. The barren hill adds another piece of beauty to the shot.
Wonderful composition!

Thanks for posting.
kind regards,

Hello Ram,
It seems that a macro lense is good for landscape too !
Good photo of a very nice place

Hi Ram,
A most interesting photo. The three different textures of mountain make this a rather special photo to look at. I wonder why the mountain in the FG does not have any trees. Normally the highter mountains don't have them. The large version gives a lot more justice to the stunning view.

Hello Ram
Wonderful landscape, the large version is fantastic and very impressive
what i like the most is the different layer of colors, brown, black, white and blue
wonderful POV and sharp details
Have a good night

Hallo Ram
How beautiful it is to look at these snow covered mountains. It almost looks as if a packet of icing sugar was dropped out of the sky, which coated the mountains in a pure white blanket. The lovely blue sky in contrast with the white snow and the dark trees and mountains in the foreground is wonderful. Thanks for sharing this lovely scenery. Best regards.

Ciao Ram, fantastic moujntain landscape, superb sky, wonderful light and colors, very well done, ciao Silvio

Hello Ram !
During my holiday in the mountain, I went on top of the highest peak in Europe (the Mont Blanc) with the cable car, hoping to see something like that, but I saw nothing but clouds and white fog. Not a single minute in the whole day did I see any peak or mountain - just a white emptiness. So I am happy I can see this breathtaking picture, right now (moutains at last ! :-) I love the combination of bare rock, trees and snow, and all of this under a splendid blue sky. You must feel so small in front of these majestic mountains, I envy you ! :-) Very well done !

Hi Ram,
I can almost feel the cold air and the calm... thanks for this outstandig view.
Each time I feel bad or sad, and I´m far away from home, I use to see my old pics from mountains... they give peace to my soul.

About your pic, it´s great to see how nature can mix in only one place so many different things: the snow, the stones, the forest... You´ve done a great job showing all this and the sky with clouds. A very nice place to be... Do you know the high of it? Thanks
have a nice weekend!
