The Himalayas are among the youngest mountain ranges on the planet and consist mostly of uplifted sedimentary and metamorphic rock. According to the modern theory of plate tectonics, their formation is a result of a continental collision or orogeny along the convergent boundary between the Indo-Australian Plate and the Eurasian Plate. The Arakan Yoma highlands in Myanmar and the Andaman and Nicobar Islands in the Bay of Bengal were also formed as a result of this collision.

Another impressive mountain scene well composed with the land formation clearly defined and superbly contrasts against the backdrop snowy peaks. The rich blue sky finishes off nicely, Well done. Congrats

the harsh,barren FG contrasts very well with the distant snow capped mountains giving the image a lovely depth.
The clear blue sky is perfect for a most dramatic and impressive landscape.

Un très beau paysage aux couleurs contrastante, la montagne de terre et le blanc lumineux des formation rocheuses sous un beau ciel bleu

Wonderful view of the Himalayas! The snow mountains in the background make a beautiful contrast with the landscape in the foreground! Very nice perspective and depth! The colors are excellent! Wonderful composition!
As you mentioned the Andaman Islands in your note, one of these days I was reading about one of them, called North Sentinel, and I found it all really interesting! I didn't know about such isolated civilization there!
