[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hello friends! Initially I thought I should not post it for the reason that it may not be the quality you expect; but then as I am running out of gas......... I aM BACK TO ARCHIVE. May be a day will come when we will be back to bullock-carts; however back to this photograph, it was shot at Yumthang 12,000 feet ASL depicting the light effect over the mountains & the rhododendron shrubs after their immense bloom during summer. I had liked the overall impact of this landscape; hence bear with me & I appreciate you stopping for something which I had liked at least :)


Yumthang, situated at a height of 11800 feet is popularly know as "Valley of Flowers". located at a distance of 148 kms from Gangtok, it is a paradise for nature lovers with a fascinating blend of flora and fauna and breathtaking scenic beauty. In spring season, wild flowers such a Primulas and Rhododendrons bathe and landscape in rich colors, making it a tourist hot spot.

En güzel dileklerimle

I am surprised that the flowers at this height. You have used the light very well here. It gives almost that mystery to the image and is also a good use of light. Archives are good. I would not have survived the winter without them.
