Two early morning walkers take a walk down an abandoned road on the outskirt of the famous mall area in Darjeeling. Not to many people walk this Lonely Road ,from where you can have a great view of the Majestic Kanchenjunga. Reminds me of the words from a song by Everlast,the American Rapper.
Too much time, thinkin' 'bout all of my mistakes
My heart, my mind, my soul, my body aches
I hunger for the loving arms of your embrace
I walk along the lonely road ..............
Nothing compares to the beauty of nature in the loving embrace of the Himalayas.

the two figures walking along the track add a nice human touch to a very dramatic location with the distant mountains most appealing.

The snow capped mountains in the distance is breathtaking. Including two men in the picture made it more interesting.

Possibly the PP is just slightly overdone with maybe just a bit too saturated colours. On the other hand the light is strong in the Himalayas, so I may be mistaken. In any case it's a lovely composition of the two boys walking along the track facing this magnificent view. The hillside forms a fine diagonal that splits the composition in two halves.

Interesting scene; it was possible to make also a panoramic view with more field on the right
maria-v1981 (10403) 2013-02-19 3:27
Walking and even in the countryside is one of the best pleasures. The view ismarvelous. Clarity and perspective are excellent all the atmosphere is splendid.
Have a nice day,

Darjeeling has such an exotic connotation in my mind Farhat and is a place I hope to see one day. This is a marvellous shot; super FG detail with the two walkers and looking past them to the magnificent unending mountains. Warm regards Rosemary
jhm (122474) 2013-02-19 4:46
Early in the morning are the most beautiful strolls, a lot oxygen in the air.
A lovely panoramic view about these area.
A splendid picture, nice taken.
Depth and perspective are pleasant.
Excellent taken with nice sharpness and clarity.
Very well done, TFS
ikeharel (37378) 2013-02-19 8:12
What's behind the curve Farhat...?
Pic. space well allocated to sky, mountain on far and beautiful trail to take a hike, shaded by the big tree on left.
Fine taken and well managed light and depth.
Nicou (97775) 2013-02-19 8:41
Avec ces deux personnage quelle vue en fond et le chemin qui fait la courbe la belle végétation superbe ensemble et captage.
Bravo et amitié
eldancer1 (17088) 2013-02-19 9:17
Maybe a lonely road but what an awesome view of the valley and mountains. Good capture with good lighting and dof with sharp details. Wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.
adramad (27556) 2013-02-19 11:29
An extraordinary landscape, with a well chosen POV, showing this path, with the diagonal of the mountain and a great perspective, whose horizon is all full of big tops, ideal color contrast between this side of the foreground and background picture, the two people walking are a good bonus for the image.
Superb brightness and sharpness.
danos (74056) 2013-02-19 22:27
nice the mountain scape view with the two walking people to add life in the image.I like the brilliant light on the foreground as the snowy tops of the Mts on the backdrop.
Robert1969 (6238) 2013-02-20 0:06
Very nice surrounding, the layers in the picture
creates a nice depth and the path on the
forground emphasize that extra. Composition is
also very good.
One little note: blue sky and higher iso speed
is killing for a photo print even with a DSLR:
in the blue area you will see a lots of noise.
My advise: use always the lowest iso speed (in
this case 80) and you will see even on your pc
screan the differents (test it in differents
iso speed with a blue sky and watch it at home).
Fis2 (73124) 2013-02-20 2:47
Charming place, wonderful landscape.
I like POV and composition.
Persons add savor of photo.
mirosu (5533) 2013-02-20 3:02
Excellent mountains landscape. The mountains are in perfect light, clarity and sharpness. Great deep depth of field, excellent contrast against bright foreground. The walking men add nice life to the scene.
dkmurphys (36831) 2013-02-20 5:38
What a splendid mountain road. The panorama is amazing, also the colors. Well taken scene.
siolaw (37568) 2013-02-20 6:23
You managed a fine compo with those two people walking and the snow capped peaks in the BG... Nice layering of the hills leading the eye up to the great mountains!
bona (10148) 2013-02-20 6:46
I like places like that, with the fantastic view of the mountains and the green arround.
Nice saturated colors and compostion.
Kielia (20467) 2013-02-20 8:40
a very interesting photo - very nicely composed with a fantastic atmosphere. The light on this fascinating place makes the image very attractive! My compliments also for the note!
josepmarin (55063) 2013-02-20 11:38
a beautiful mountain landscape, in a very deep and sharp image, which you offer us by means a good framing.
I like the great light and the natural colors, the presence of people and the majestic mountain range in background as well.
kato (6789) 2013-02-20 21:13
You're capturig well this spot by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's impressive to see mountain range and Himalayas in the distance from mountain road. It's effective for mountain roadside in this side with bushes and green plants, too. And, two walkers on road draws out an additional good impact in this image.
fritzi007 (7580) 2013-02-21 4:05
Nothing compares to the beauty of nature!!!
delpeoples (45006) 2013-02-21 4:46
Namaskar dear Farhat
This is a really well-composed and beautiful photo. I like how the 2 men are walking away from the camera and positioned to the far right of the frame. They give the image a sense of movement and a sense of scale in comparison to those huge mountains. Exquisite light. Nice work.
Have a lovely day
clic (11033) 2013-02-21 7:28
This is a piece of fine-arts museum!
The hikers judiciously-located on a vertical tiers line, composition-wise, give life to this piece of Earth hanging half way towards the skies for a splendid overlook on distant mountains!
You took a majestic portrait of Serenity and if all rappers sing the beauties of Nature, I will convert myself to rap music listening!
Many compliments. and see you soon!
rychem (9240) 2013-02-21 9:09
Excellent photo with nice composition, beautiful landscape, grat light and sharpness
Cricri (86501) 2013-02-21 10:54
Très jolie présentation, bien composer avec les personnes, une vue sublime sur le paysage, des couleurs, une lumière et un cadrage parfait, très jolie
Sonata11 (28375) 2013-02-21 20:09
this is amazingly beautiful pictyresque view. Wonderfully composed this image with those people walking this lonely road. I like this picture very much. Perfectly well done. My compliments.
All the best,
shevchenko (18243) 2013-02-22 0:31
What a beautiful mountain area that found many mountains laying everywhere in front of our sight, good pov and good frame to show it all, good capture to the visitors too, attractive vivid blue sky in a sunny day, thanks for sharing a fascinating nature view.
mkamionka (24559) 2013-02-22 7:16
lovely composition, I like how the view is framed from the left side. The walkers add some life and interest here.
Very well done!
PaulVDV (15017) 2013-02-22 11:29
With the slight slope and the leaning branches of the tree at the left a feeling of a half hollow path is created. This in strong contrast with the fantastic panorama we can see in the right half of the picture.
The view of the Kanchenjunga is simply awesome.
The two men give a good sense of scale in this almost boundless space.
Best regards, Paul
pierrefonds (48369) 2013-02-22 12:49
The distance between the persons and the mountains is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the mountain scenery. The light has a good effect on the colors. Have a nice day.
berek (31923) 2013-02-24 0:05
impressive nature picture. i love atmısphere and blue sky. well framed picture.
Have a nice Sunday.
tedesse (22124) 2013-02-24 5:46
Magnificent view! Excellent POV and DOF. Nice composition, good sharpness and colors. Tourists on the trail revive this beautiful landscape.
I cordially greet
mjw364 (3720) 2013-02-25 7:23
Great shot with a near far compositon that creates depth. the two walkers create a great focal point and the panorama looking over the mountains in the distance is fantastic.
Kamilutka (3207) 2013-02-25 8:35
this is very nice photo with outstanding colors and very good light management. I like the depth of this scene and lovely perspective. The mounatins in the background are really impressive and finish off the image in a very nice way. Good composition and interesting details of two walkers.
Thanks for sharing
ourania (12427) 2013-02-25 11:40
this lonely road (shared with a friend in the picture) is very lovely too. I like very much your composition that divides effectively the scene in two, the foreground with its warm rich colours and vivid textures and the fascinating distant view of the mountains and the sky. The walking people are superbly placed in the frame and connect the two parts too. The colour contrast is marvellous. I think that a walk in this place would be most enjoyable and refreshing and would put everything into perspective. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,
ChrisJ (86902) 2013-02-25 12:53
A good decision to include a couple of people in the shot as they add scale & context to the mountain path. A magnificent view of the bg Himalayas with reasonable sharpness & superb color & saturation. I like the warm cold colour contrast between the blue sky & yellow green grass. Tfs!
jemaflor (69011) 2013-02-26 8:28
Beautiful colors well polarized, The composition is well balanced, good light capture, tfs.
SWEETFREEDOM (18421) 2013-02-27 11:40
a nice lonely road with great view and good light.
lpi (4424) 2013-02-28 12:17
un bel endroit pour faire de la marche!
Très belle luminosité!
Du bon travail!
macjake (39235) 2013-02-28 17:12
I can see why people are really enjoying this shot.
its not the typical scene that we think of when India is on our minds, but perhaps thats part of the charm too.
lovely combination of yellows, greens and blues.
wish i was there to hike this myself :)
COSTANTINO (42746) 2013-03-02 9:52
nice moments for those walkers who take
a walk on this abandoned road,lucky
people have time free away from the
city,peaceful and nice atmosphere
I like the snow on the mountains
in the background,
have a nice Sunday
lousat (57704) 2013-03-02 11:30
Hi Farhat,i wish to walk me too on this fantastic scenery!What a view and what a magnificent bright colors,here the air is clean...ehehe...very well done,have a nice Sunday and thanks,Luciano
Hansaphotos (5435) 2013-03-02 15:55
A striking photo from this beautiful place. A breathtaking view with a nice colour contrast between the snow covered mountains, the blue sky and the greenery in the foreground. The two people is a nice addition. Very nice work:) TFS. Enjoy your weekend.
ifege (9448) 2013-03-04 22:35
Great mountain scenery with a good human element.
willperrett (2959) 2013-03-05 0:21
Lovely and dramatic landscape, brought to life by the two figures, who are well-placed in the frame at the strong thirds position. I can't help but feel however, that you've boosted the saturation in Photoshop a tad too enthusiastically...
s_lush (15592) 2013-03-09 5:48
You have chosen a very good scene and perfect moment for capturing to show beautiful natural features of this part of India and how people enjoy them. Excellent composition, with the interesting foreground and highly picturesque mountains in the background, good light, saturated colors and perfect quality of the image!
marina7 (5860) 2013-03-09 9:03
I really like this photo. Amazing view and lovely composition, fantastic sense of scale.
The picture's a bit too contrasty for my taste but none the less beautiful.
Thanks and warmest regards
