A few memories, sentiments and tales of my travels mainly in India, an attempt at photography, and at times, some reflections on other topics.
Nice hovering clouds over the highland !What is that "Sumur" ? Is it a french word; something like "saumur"?I'm interested to know about its meaning and application...Best wishes,
Yes, those clouds look almost whimsical over those majestic peaks. A "feel-good" image that celebrates the joy of being alive, and yes, the tranquility.
I envy you :)
You really travel through beautiful and exotic places :)
The landscape transitions so quickly. Lovely scenery.
Really really jealous (Getting ready to pack bags soon) :)
Lovely! It does look peaceful... it's good to see a "good side" of a region that has seen so many tensions. You really go to remote places! Is the Himalaya easy to access? Well, the part you've been to?
where did my comment disappear ? seems to have floated away like the clouds..I just cant get my eyes off the clouds..your pictures are really soothing to the eye and mindlakshmi
Saibal,Highland. I like that word.:) Sumur, a small village in the Nubra Valley. I really do not know the origin of the word but guess there is some Tibetan influence in naming it so.:)
San,Well described. Thank you.:)
Kate,Not nearly enough. Thank you for your comment.:)
Tejas,Don't be. You are almost there! Don't miss Pangong Lake. Have a great trip, my friend.:)
Zhu,Tension and security issues are there at many international borders, why just Himalayas? Think I could write a full post to answer your interesting questions.:)Anyway, to put it in a nutshell:Some of the Himalayan mountains can be viewed from easy-to-reach hill stations of India from the states of Sikkim, West Bengal, Jammu & Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh, Uttaranchal etc.A few parts I've been to are hard-to-reach spots (for eg., Pangong Lake at the border with China, or Nubra Valley at the borders of Pakistan). But these places are accessible by road transport during the summer months if and when the Authorities decide to grant permission to tourists. Visitors, including Indians, need to obtain a special permits from the relevant Authorities to reach there. Journey is not easy, but not impossible. In my opinion, it's all worth it. Hope I've been of help.:)
Lakshmi,Haha..Delighted to hear that. The feeling you get there in the remote regions is indescribable:)
breathtaking.......I envy you.
Liked this image a lot....quite keen to know how much time you spent looking at this scene.....!
Looks so perfect,like a dream!If just seeing the pic creates such a feeling,how must it feel to actually be there :)
BTR,I am glad to hear that. It was similar scenery for most of the time when I was in Nubra Valley and through many parts of Ladakh.:)
Sameera,As I said, the feeling is filled with awe and is hard to describe in words.:)
