SWF: An Evening in Mussorie

Located at a height of almost 7,000 feet above sea level, and through pine filled trees on hill slopes, scenic Mussorie commands some magnificent vistas of the extensive Himalayan mountain ranges.

I had the pleasure of viewing the changing colors of the sky while on an evening walk on the way back from the Company Bagh.

These are a few shots of early part of the sunset that evening, and the colors subsequently changed to much deeper shades of red and orange. I shall post some more pictures of the same sunset in another post.

These are amazing. I really like the effect of the branch in the bottom shot, though. Tonight I was admiring the silhouettes of some pine trees against the spring sky. Very beautiful. Like this in a way.
