My 100th post on TE!
Before I describe this shot, I must thank my friends at TE who discussed about my posts and let me feel several technical and artistic errors my posts suffered.Some of them visit my gallery almost regularly and discuss them. Some comes once for a while and appreciate good shots only. Some gets in, view the photo but don't talk. Yet, they visit my website. I am thankful to every member of TE.
Now the photograph.
It was shoot on 20th May at about 9am. Place was Mongpoo. The shot was made during a stroll near about Nirmala chowk. Just ahead is Rabindradham and Chincona factory. Darjeeling is 31kms from here. There was no storm nor there was any other natural disaster. The mountain top, cloud, pine trees makes a storm effect that I liked most of all my Summer Trek shots.

first, congrats on your 100th post!
this is an exclusive post, one very very close to my heart. it shows the beauty of nature, pale, stormy, details of silhouettes, the prayer flags, a roof -- multiple layering of objects (thanks to the open space you got there).
a very nice post from you.

Hi Kausik, congratulations with your number 100!!Impressive rendering of the wetaher like this, it loos very threatening this way, and although I don't expect it to be very cold over there, it does give me that impression.
I think maybe the foreground could be a little bit lighter.

A moody shot K.- almosty in bw. I like the details here where I find the trees in the middle important for the disposition of this compo. Good work

Happy 100 Kausik. I love the low clouds and dark threatening sky on this shot. At first I thought it was B&W and then noticed the greens.

Un excellent traitement de cette situation climatique un peu particulière. C'est ce qui s'appelle avoir la tête dans les nuages.
Tu t'en es bien sorti, malgré des lumières pas faciles.
Un yout bon cadrage et POV qui donne un spectacle magnifique.

Some well placed trees in this photo, Kausik. I love the dramatic sky against which the silhouettes work so well.

I like the stormy atmosphere in this photo very much! Good looking clouds covering hills and silhouettes of plants on the first plane. Good job!
