A newly laid road is the only sign of civilization in this barren deserted land. As I was approaching a lake, the moisture in the soil has allowed some green grass to grow on the otherwise barren land.
I got up on the bonnet of the vehicle I was travelling in to take this shot. That was the only high vantage point I could manage within a short period of time.
Thanks for looking.

that is a nicely composed shot of the landscape with the black road providing great contrast and lovely lead to the hills. The clarity and colours are superb. Beautiful details of the hill in the bg against the clear blue sky. Thanks for sharing and have a great weekend and happy holi :-).

Like a long black snake the road is meandering through the landscape.
Despite the barrenness of the area the picture is quite colourfull with the grass, the snowy peak at the right and the rock colour, all under a nice blue sky.
Best regards, Paul

A simple landscape but a most effective and appealing one. The sinuous black-topped road draws the viewer into the scene and also creates depth. Agreeable warm light and natural tones. Excellent sharpness throughout.

well it does not get any more enticing than this. A black curvy line that pulls us irresistibly into this captivating and beautiful landscape. Awesome!
Have an enjoyable weekend - B.

Le chemin noir qui zigzague dirige le regard vers la montagne et donne de la profondeur à l'image. Beau paysage sous un ciel magnifique. Belle composition. Salutations.

Dobar dan, popodne.
Lep pogled na put koji nas vodi tamo daleko u nepoznato ...
Dobar snimak, ostrina, kontrast i perspektiva, lepo pokazano mesto sa putem i planina u daljini, lepe boje.
Dobar rad i kompozicija, lepa priroda i trenutak sa belim oblacima.
Lepo popodne i sve najbolje za vikend, srecno.
Good afternoon, this afternoon.
Nice view of the road that takes us far away into the unknown ...
Good shot, sharpness, contrast and perspective, nice place shown with and through the mountains in the distance, beautiful colors.
Good work and composition, beautiful nature and moment with white clouds.
Nice afternoon and all the best for the weekend, good luck.

Nicely composed, Subho. The road is a striking addition to this nice landscape, and gives the viewer a good path into the shot. It's quite narrow, but I imagine it doesn't get much traffic. Thanks for this look at another side of India.

It seems a million miles from mankind, but as you say the freshly laid road is a sign of mankind, and it makes a really striking leading line into this image. The view is so majestic, and the road creates a perfect compliment of depth. Love this composition too, really nicely done! Thanks to your efforts for this wonderful natural scene.
All the best

nice the view of the place with the 'black line' of the asphalt to creates depth and perspective in the scene.I like the excellent light management as the contrast of the colours.Well done.

Excellent photo with a peaceful atmosphere, beautiful landscape , I like the S line of the road, great depth, very well composed photo

amazing black road like ribbon between the mountains. Fine POV and composition. Colors I like, too.
Have a nice evening.
chrislo (4155) 2014-03-15 13:40
The simplicity of this one makes it really appealing. The curving road is doing a good job of leading the eye into the scene. I like the way it goes from the green grass to the muted browns of the mountains, giving the landscape enough depth to make it truly beautiful. Well done.
ourania (41166) 2014-03-15 14:57
your composition is excellent, it's great you passed from there while the road was still black and that you thought of the bonnet of the car as vantage point. The diagonals and curves in your frame compose a very fine layout with delightful rhythm. The long road helps us realize how vast this landscape is. You moderated the intensity of the light superbly, it's amazing that there are no shadows in this immense view. The colours are beautiful and well arranged. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,

The road is leading my eye toward the mountains which is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and the colours of the mountains. The good luminosity is making the colours to stand out. Have a nice day.

An oasis in the desert. Very nice capture. I like it.

La rouge tout sombre ressort parfaitement au milieu de ces champs quelle compo et vue quel contraste de tons et couleurs et ce virage de la route grandiose captage.
Bravo et amitié

good d.o.f. and light. beautiful landscape and colors.
siudzi (34141) 2014-03-16 1:19
The road created a brilliant visual effect of your composition leads us directly to the mountains. The strong color contrast and execution gave a beautiful result to build eye catching presentation. Like it a lot! Excellent landscape post!
Have a nice day!
holmertz (48910) 2014-03-16 3:50
This is a terrific composition, depending very much on the newly laid road which makes a fine black curving line through the scenery. These artificial curves, along with the natural curves of the hillsides, give the composition good balance and a nice rhythm. The fine colours are an added advantage of this photo.
dekanski (4759) 2014-03-16 11:31
Nice Subho, very nice! Like it!
Cricri (115519) 2014-03-16 12:32
Des couleurs et une lumière très belle dans ce paysage ou la route noir serpente vers les montagnes et donne un fort contraste de couleurs, belle présentation
Silvio1953 (136633) 2014-03-16 12:37
Ciao Subho, great view of neverending road in a fascinating mounyaun landscape, good perspective, wonderful colors, splendid light and excellent clarity, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio
mcmtanyel (19667) 2014-03-16 16:59
From the thumbnail, the road looked like a river winding its way through the valley. Gorgeous nature, majestic mountains divided by an artificial boundary.
Royaldevon (36087) 2014-03-17 3:59
This is a fine shot, using the newly laid road as a fine, tortuous lead across the land, to the rising hills and a strong vanishing point.
Excellent clarity and natural, well saturated colours.
My warm regards,
mirosu (15972) 2014-03-17 5:28
Excellent photo arrangement, perfect light and clarity. The black road is nicely leading the eye through the frame to the mountains in BG. I like the perfect contrast against clean blue sky. Where is this nice place??
Very well done.
subhendu_bagchi (26083) 2014-03-17 20:33
hello dear Subho.
A frame with simple elements sometime create great impact. The road is a perfect eye catcher here, which you placed nicely in the frame. Excellent picture quality with great depth. Very good colours too. A superb one. Tfs.
Angshu (56748) 2014-03-17 23:08
A picture which epitomizes the barrenness of Ladakh...the lone single lane road through the barren peaks...yes, this is the beauty of the place indeed.
While this is well done, I would suggest that for such pictures have some object as a scale and also as a focal point...maybe a car, a person, a tree...something that would be a focal point and would pivot the shot well and also provide scale.

Wow, simply breathtaking. India sure is a land of wonders. I love the serenity and the feeling of solitude in this image. Great colors, nice emphasis on the road and simply wonderful landscape. All elements in one great photographic can be found in here. Great capture!
