Om' Jabakusuma-sankashang Kashyapeyam mahadyutim.
Sunrise is an eternal phenomenon of nature and always comes up with a magnificent and magical colour play. The spectrum of colour mostly remains towards the yellow and red range those are the longer wave-lengthed colours.
Heavenly view of that colourful magic of the horizon creates a rhythm of melody that seep human minds and charge them with the energy to work throughout the day.
Whatever may be the scientific jargon behind it "Sunrise" is the forever target of photographers. Any one who has handled a camera must have shot at least one sunrise.
Sandakphu (3611 Meters) is the highest point in West Bengal in Darjeeling district. A 31 Kilometers trek for Sandakphu starts from Manebhanjan.
Magnificent panoremic view of Everest group, Kanchenjunga family and Pandim range are there to see to believe it.
This is Sunrise at Sandakphu.
The topmost line is the hymn of Sun in Veda in Sanskrita language.

Wow! Simply fascinating shot! The trees are special of this area, the sunrays are seen through clouds..the lens glare is there but I don't think that makes any problem to this shot, this is natural..the shot really speaks of itself...wish if could go there just now!!!

Hello Dr :)
Trees watching the sunrise...they are perfectly defined in the cloudy sky. The clouds have different shapes and they constitude a nice background. Everything is in harmony in this photograph. Thanks for sharing.

Hello Dr. J.
What a magnificent shot. The composition is first rate, with the sun off on the side, and the trees in the foreground in razor sharp focus. You live in a 'suburb of paradise.' The pastels of the sun in the lower region are gradually replaced by the shorter wavelenths blues and greens in the upper region. Although it is far more than you need to know, I gave a technical explanation for "a sunset>" Unfortunately, I ran out of green smileys. I owe you,

Hello Dr.J how are you?
I like your thoughts here as well as the original not corrected image. The colours are natural as the natural environment around! Beautiful the "blue" of the sky and the silhouettes of the trees! Thanks for sharing.
