Photographer's Note

One of my old shots taken by a very ordinary Fuji film manual camera.
Its the view of a sunrise from a place called Loleygaon in West Bengal.This snap was taken from a sunrise view point called 'Jhandidanra',from where a breathtaking view of the sunrise can be obtained.
The winter season is the best time to visit the hills,not for the lucrative off season discounts,but to have a very good chance of getting a view like this.
The beauty of Jhandidanra lies in the fact that one can see the sun rise from one side and see the rays getting reflected on the snow capped peaks of Kanchenjunga and other peaks,directly on the oppoisite side.
Loleygaon is very well connected by road from Siliguri and Kalimpong,and has quite a few lodging accomodations including a WBFDC bunglow.
Rishap,a Lepcha village near Loleygaon is also accessible quite easily.
I know this one has a lot of scanning deformities.I worked on it quite a bit to give it a minimum presentable appearance.
