Lamayuru is one o the largets and also the one o the oldest monestary in Ladakh area. It is situated on Kargil- Leh highway approximately 80 Kms short o Leh at an altitude of more than 3500 meters above MSL. Approx. 150 lamas stay there all the time.
It has a very beautiful building and a good photographer (unlike me) can actually capture the magnificient beauty of the moon like land and the monestary fitted in between this landscape.
I have posted a slightly different version in the WS.

beautiful himalayan landscape, with the typical buildings against the mountains. Maybe it lacks a little bit of contrast, and there is a slight green dominance, which you can correct offline.
Just a bit.

A beautiful scenery, it looks almost alien, yet very appealing. The photo is beautifully composed, has good depth to it, and shows a couple of interesting subjects. Shadows and light act frivolously and I like that. Fine stuff.
How are you doing btw? :)

Hello Hemant, friend,
so worth visual information from Lamayuru. Your realization from the optimal point, nice panoramic view. So glad to see it and to meet you again.
Have a very nice year 2009!

belle photo de ce village dans ces montagnes, avec en arrière plan ces hautes montagnes qui sont traversées par les ombres laissées par ces nuages qui passent devant le soleil.
Rosa et moi vous souhaitons de bonnes et joyeuses fêtes et vous présentons nos meilleurs voeux pour cette année 2009, qu' elle vous apporte bonheur, argent, prospérité et beaucoup de jolies photos.

I don't know if I would prefer the closer view in ws but anyway both versions gave a good idea how this fantastic place looks!
My best wishes for you&family(friends) for 2009 ;)

Amazing lighting, Hemant! With the buildings in shade, it is more like a painting than a photograph. Well done.
