Photographer's Note

La veille ,il y avait eu un premier orage dans la nuit .Il avait provoqué une grosse coulée de boue, ce qui avait cassé la route, et donc nous avait empêché d’atteindre le départ de notre trek. Ayant remis le départ de celui-ci au lendemain ,j’en profitais pour continuer de me balader dans Leh.Les nuages noirs continuaient de s’amonceler dans le ciel,mais je ne savais pas encore que la nuit suivante serait la plus terrible nuit de mon séjour. J’espérais encore que ces énormes nuages noirs allaient juste passer,et que le reste des vacances se passerait sans problèmes.
Cette partie de Leh ne fut pas touchée, seule la partie basse et plus récente de la ville s’écroula complètement.De ce côté,le ciel était vraiment noir,je ne l'ai pratiquement pas accentué!

The day before , there had had a first thunderstorm in the night .Il had provoked a big mudslide, that had broken the road, and thus had prevented us from reaching the departure of our trek. Having put back the departure of this one the next day, I took advantage of it to continue to have a walk in Leh. The black clouds continued to accumulate in the sky, but I did not still know that the next night would be the most terrible night of my stay. I still hoped that these enormous black clouds were just going to pass, and that the rest of the holidays would be without problems.
This part of Leh was not touched, only the more recent and low part of the city collapsed completely.On this side of the town,the sky was really black,and I almost didn't accentuate the contrast.
