Kaza, situated on the left bank of River Spiti, is presently the headquarters of Spiti sub-division. Its perched at an elevation of 3,740 meters (12,300 ft) above mean sea level, is the largest township and commercial center of the valley and as is typical of the valley - its largely Tibetan. The town is overlooked by steep ridges that are permanently covered with snow on their top.
One evening I captured this scene as I walked from the Kaza monastery to the river bank, & noticed these isolated small trees creating an amazing luminescence against the backdrop of the green fields of sweet pea, the blue streak of River Spiti & the menacing dark brown treeless mountain slopes.

Interesting photo. The background is amazing both color and strukture wise. The golden trees in the foreground add not only a lot of contrast but also make this picture a little bit more cheerful. The small house creates nice and discreet element in the left corner.
Very good composition and POV. I like the framing too.
Have a nice day!

Beautiful contrast between the vivid colours on the foreground and the dark colours behind the river. The alternation of sunny and shaded areas on the mountains is very impressive. One of the best picture of the day,

The distance between the two shores is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the side of the mountain. The good luminosity is giving nice tints to the colors. Have a nice day.

J'aime beaucoup la lumière qui frappe en diagonale les flancs vallonnés de la montagne. Le point de vue est impeccable ainsi que le cadrage serré.

The superb light and your good eyes have combined to make a very good composition. The strangely shaped dark mountainside looks fascinating but strangely menacing. There is a remarkable contrast between these dark rocks and the intense colours of the lower part, which is divided very neatly into a blue, green and a light brown area.

Very attractive picture of a wonderful natural location!
Sharpness, exposure, colors, chosen pov and composition are all excellent!
TFS - congrats,

You really do know how to grab the moment, the low warm golden light catching on the textured landscape is purely magical. A wonderful scene with attractive backdrop creating a painterly feel and the contrast is stunning with lively patches of green. Awesome catch, Congrats.
mkamionka (30222) 2012-12-19 5:28
beautiful view. I like the flat area just before the high mountains rise. There is so much green although above we can spot some snow. Amazing play of the light and shadow with the surface of the mountain. Very impressive final effect.
Kielia (23405) 2012-12-19 6:31
you have found a very well working POV to show us the beautiful landscape in this wonderful light. The season offers fresh colors that make the image very attractive - and the composition is excellent. Another very fascinating impression in the best spirit of this site.
josepmarin (57713) 2012-12-19 9:20
Namaste, my friend Angshuman,
you have caught a splendid game of light and shades on this hillside, which they emphasize its beautiful geological morphology and increase the three-dimensional sensation, in an image with a great graphical power.
The river and the golden trees in foreground are very important elements in your composition.
You have done a great work, as usual.
