[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
In the first week of June 2011, I was on a trek to a Himalayan pass in district Chamba of Himachal Pradesh in India with my school students. On the second day of the trek, we were lodged in a rest house at an altitude of 8000ft.
At about 6 in the morning of June 4, the mountains across the valley were bathed in the early morning sunshine. I took this picture from the lawns of the rest house. The mountain with some snow on it is called Mehldhar by the locals. By the way, this is the region in which my native place is located.
These are Lesser Himalayas that form the backdrop to the valley I come from. I have seen them from my childhood, so I have a strong bonding with them. The snow covered mountain on the horizon is considered sacred abode of a local serpent deity that goes by the name of Mehl Naag.
This picture is dedicated to our friend Maciej in respect for his never-ending treks in his country that he shares with us on regular basis.

Please see the LP version for better details.

Hi Ram,

recently i'm taking delight in admiring photos with Large Version attached.It allows me to enjoy the finest details of an image, especially in landscapes like these.Simply wonderful, particularly details of what i believe are man-made terracings on the right of the photo.Colours are very beautiful and excellent was the lighting management.

Hello Ram,
Very beautiful this landscape picture, especially on the Large version. As I wrote it to you in a former critique, this looks almost like in my homeland, Valais. Looking at the right side of the shot, it is a quite similar place where I have my chalet.
Kind regards
