It was captured in a cloudy morning at Tonglu (10000 ft), one small village in the Sandakphu trek route. After starting your trek from Manebhanjang you have to cover 14 km to reach this place. In clear weather you can see a panoramic view of Himalayan snow covered peaks like Mt. Kanchenzunga, Pandim, Makalu, Kumbhakarna etc. A very picturesque treker's hut is also waiting for you here. The short route to reach Tonglu is from Dhotre, which is only 6 km.
Here you can see a different sunrise with subdued light in sky due to cloud and just the piping of sun through it. The framing with the two Buddhist cemetery with the semi silhouetted ground attracted of at that time. Now I am sharing it with you. Hope you'll like it.

There is a haunting atmosphere in this image of the silhouette of the two towers against a backdrop of pink/purple sky.
Have a good weekend,

Great to see the purple colors. The purple we don't see too much here due to pollution. The silhouettes look wonderful and very well composed. Great work.

A certain mystery planes on this photograph thanks to your photographic treatment of this sunrise. Interesting back-light on this cemetery which creates an original atmosphere just like this pink color. Well done Subhendu.
With all my friendships and a very good WE,

Dobar uvodni tekst i odlican trenutak snimka ...
Tamna obelezja u prednjem planu istakle su ovaj lep trenutak koji ste vi prikazali dobrim bojama i lepom fotografijom, svidja mi se.
Lep pogled, Paja.
A good introductory text and a great time recording ...

This is a shot for dreaming, it's of another world, far away from today's hustle. The moon between the pillars looks great. Well done. Thanks for your critique of my lottery seller.

- Special atmosphere Subhendu with mysterious ambience and poetic also, almost monochromic color and in foreground and chines shadows these stones for bonus, well done!

Ciao dear Subhendu,
these beautiful colors give a pleasant chromatic feeling, creating an interesting atmosphere of suggestion, almost mysticism. Excellent work, dear friend, in which you have managed very well the light and the colors. Compliments!
Ciao, have a nice week!

Bonsoir, mon ami Subhendu,
Quand l'aube prend le pas sur la nuit et nous offre un tel spectacle, il faut absolument l'immortaliser, comme ici.
Une très belle image aux couleurs étranges et mystérieuses.
Les silhouettes situées au premier plan intriguent beaucoup le lecteur.

Both tombs create a good frame and embrace the Sun to the dawn, in an image with a great visual attraction.
I like the light and the soft tones on the sky, and the strong contrast with the ground in semidarkness.
Is a nice work, full of calmness.
Best regards, my friend,

A forma como você tratou a fotometria ficou muito interessante. Bontio efeito nas cores.

I don't know yet by myself how to do good sunrises or sunsets so I cannot really tell you how to improve it. :)
Certainly you have managed to capture an amazing atmosphere here. Cementeries always have a special mood, a bit scary, and the low light situations surely enhance it.
I think you should photograph this cementery some time again -I think it has a great potential, and it is very interesting for Europeans.
