[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
All I have to say that you have to see to believe this beauty.

"Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves."
John Muir

This quotation surely tells us the inner feelings of a traveler who climbs the mountain. Himalayas is one such nature's gift to mankind. It's the symbol of nature's beauty and might in true sense. Himalayas being the world's highest mountain chain is a collage of nature's beauty. It portrays different facets of nature like the snowcapped mountain peaks, valleys, glaciers, rivers, and varied and rich vegetation. For mankind Himalayas has always been a mystery so people have tried to explore it again and again. It was in the year 1953, 29th May when Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay became the first humans to climb the Mt. Everest, world's highest peak, since than many have climbed to explore the unknown zone of the Himalayas. Exploring the Himalayas brings you close to nature its surroundings, its beautiful people, its religion and food habits. As you traverse through the Himalayan range you discover the geographic variation from the lush green lands to the beautiful valleys and tropical jungles. Such variation is rarely seen anywhere else in the world.

hello Subhash

you are at the roof of the world with a beautiful scenery
of the great mountain chains, fine POV & DOF,
i love the effect of the image from darker to cold lighter,
with your photos and notes we are travelling the great
mountains of your country Subhash, TFS


"You never conquer a mountain. Mountains can't be conquered; you conquer yourself." so said my good friends father Jim Whittaker, the first American to climb Everest in 1962. By the way, Jim is still quite alive and not but 200 miles West of me as the crow flies.

Your images are so nice..I have shared them with all of my local Punjabi friends some of who were born in the Province S of here....many do not know this but they should. Your photos are VERY rare and VERY scarce. the opportunities you have as an MD highly prized by his country and also as a military man give you an advantage that only a scarce few have. then you add to that your ability to take a picture with natural reasoning and focal, yet add into that mix a meaning deep enough for quality thought time. for this I admire and honor you..and for those who do not know you...the good and humble Dr is:
