Photographer's Note

In the night it had snowed all throughout Spiti. Evidence of this overnight snow was clear in the crevices & mountain slopes around Kye monastery, where we visited in the morning. As the day progressed, the sun became progressively stronger, so much so to create sun burn on our bare hands & face! The snow in the mountain crevices also melted.

The melted snow created puddles on the road. After having ‘parked myself for more than an hour in ‘Rangrik’ village to capture the beauty of the setting sun on the Kye monastery, it was time for us to return to our Guesthouse in Kaza

As our car passed one of the puddles on the un-tarred road between Rangrik & Kaza, I could not but help notice the fantastic reflection of the snow capped mountain peak & the hint of the late sunlight on the higher reaches of the peak. I stopped the car & ran back towards the puddle. It was already dark this side of the mountain, as the sun slowly eased down on the other side. The water in the puddle was still ‘rippling’, disturbed by our car which passed over it. I waited till the water became calm & the reflection became perfect....before I took this shot
