Roghi village is a very beautiful village situated 8 kms. away from the town of Kalpa. There is a cliff hugging one way road from Kalpa to Roghi. Its a very dangerous road. But once you reach Roghi your adventures on the road are rewarded by a spectacular view of the Kinnaur Kailash Range. The village it self is built on the slope of a mountain and is covered with apple, apricot and chilgoza trees. The inhabitants of the village are very helpful.. and will escort you around their village at the drop of a hat. Nice people live in nice places.

Very nice, you have two parts of the photo: spring in the foreground and winter in the background, cleverly combined, bravo

Hi Subho. Photo and titles complement each other very nicely. The strange house in the foreground, flowering bushes and the snow capped mountains in the background are a wonderful sight.

A splendid view of the Himalaya in springtime . The composition is excellent , with so attractive elements : the picturesque house in the FG , the terraces fields with pink trees in blossom , and the amazing white mountains in the BG .

A well-composed mountain-scape with an interesting foreground. I like the way you managed light -- on the snow as well as on the shaded part of the.
Natural colors and good clarity.

Good Morning Subho,
This is indeed a beautiful spot, worth the dangers of the hazardous road.
Your photograph has a good diagonal composition, the edge of the hill on which the village stands, making a good separation line with the mountainous, snowy b/g. There are very strong textural and colour contrasts between the two areas.
I love the little house, snuggling so discretely into the side of the hill with its attendant fruit blossom.
My only suggestion would have been to capture the entire house on the shot. If it had been possible to step back a little, you could have included the l/h corner of the house and this might have meant that the flagged f/g could have emerged right on the corner.
Have a great day,

quelle vue de cette maison dans les montagnes toute blottie avec ce toit plat à l'abri et le montagnes en fond ce ciel limpide mervielleux.
Bravo et amitié

I see almost three seasons on one picture.
In background the mountains with snow, in foreground the chalet, on the slope the trees in full blossom
Also excellent perspective and depth picture.
Very well presentation, nice done, TFS.

Hi Subho,what a place and what a moment! The pink flowers of springtime are perfect to contrast the cold colors of the scenery,fantastic view and great capture with fine details in the best exposure of the different light levels,i like it!! Have a nice evening and thanks,Luciano

The view is really lovely, and your POV gives a wonderful perpective of this isolated village facing the high snow-capped mountains. The stone house in the FG, the terraced fields and the pink-flowered trees announcing the arrival of spring make it a very beautiful and pleasing composition.

beautiful view dear Subho. Nice clear photo with great light everywhere. Good shadow detailing. In my eyes there is a bit extra blue hues in this frame (IMHO) which can be rectified easily in PP. Otherwise I like the composition with the snow capped mountains at background. A nice one. Really pleasant to see... Tfs.

Excellent shot from Himachal hills with a spectacular landscape.Good sharpness and clarity.Very well done.TFS.
mirosu (15156) 2013-12-05 2:10
Nice landscape photo. The well lit white mountains are the main focal point of this photo. There is a great use of depth of field to hold the viewer in the foreground house as well as mountains in BG, and the excellent lighting conditions have allowed for very good color saturation. The overall impact is very strong. Well done.
p.s. To answer your question to my photo, "the shoppers will come during weekend".
willperrett (8017) 2013-12-05 3:21
As you say, this is indeed a beautiful place: stunningly beautiful in fact. Especially at the time of year you were there, with the blossom on the trees. I would have liked to lower the camera a couple of degrees to show the bottom of the house, but I can see your dilemma: the acreage of concrete surrounding the house would not have made a good foreground! Did you get any other vantage points around the village that may have avoided the new building taking place?
Oceania (5174) 2013-12-05 6:33
This village is absolutely beautiful, not only the snow-capped the mountains, but also the lavender trees on the slope. Thanks for showing us a gorgeous place in India.
adramad (40196) 2013-12-05 8:21
Thanks to your splendid pictures, I'm really enjoying, with these wonderful mountain scenery.
In this case, a whole show the contrast of these trees in bloom, with the towering mountains in the background, and snow-capped peaks.
Very nice color, these shades so natural in a beautiful light day.
Also both sharpness, such as lighting are great.
Well done. I Like
Enjoy a nice day.

The house is built on an impressive location. I hope it will be warm enough for its residents during wintertime.
The view is fantastic with the terraced mountain slope, the purple flowering trees and especially the awesome snowcapped mountain range.
This picture also shows the pureness of the mountain air.
Best regards, Paul
mcmtanyel (16031) 2013-12-06 21:53
Yes, it is a beautiful place. The roof of the building in the f/g is very interesting. Is it used for any purpose (like drying fruit or meat)?
Cricri (110665) 2013-12-07 4:28
Merveille composition, la vue sur les montagnes est une pure merveille, la présentation du village avec les arbres mauve, le cadrage de la maison, toute belle réalisation
ChrisJ (103589) 2013-12-07 9:43
I love the splashes of hot pink contrasting against the cooler blue hues of th sky and shadowed valley. A magnificent backdrop of snowcapped peaks with good sharpness and realistic color and saturation. The high pov overlooking the flat topped fg roof works well here. Tfs!
jcpix (13812) 2013-12-07 15:16
A view that would make anyone envious, this is gorgeous! The pinkish/purple leaves on the trees and the bright blue sky are a most delightful color combination and effect. The altitude is well portrayed here, that sensation of "higher" living is certainly felt with a view of these majestic peaks seemingly on the level. :) Everything appears to be in harmony, nature and photographer...well presented!
All the best,
josepmarin (57885) 2013-12-12 0:42
a nice composition, as a postcard, where we can enjoy the grand view on the mountains covered with snow in background, while the traditional architecture of the house and the bloomed trees offer us its great beauty.
A good management of light and colors, with which you have reached a high quality image.
Miguel82 (26546) 2013-12-21 12:15
The beauty of Spiti and Kinnaur Kailash range in Hp state Subho, I like that view of snow capped mountains and pink flowers, nice to see that old traditional house, thanks, all the best, warm regards
jmdias (58532) 2013-12-27 15:50
fantastic this view. I liked the colored trees covered with flowers while we can see the house and its curious shapes and the big mountains ahead. TFS;.
pierrefonds (59820) 2013-12-30 15:23
The distance between the house and the mountains is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the détails, the colors of the house and of the mountains. The good luminosity is bringing out the beauty of the colors. Have a nice dya.
