A bridge in the middle of nowhere. I could not spot any living being 40 kms. before or after this bridge over a stream on the Leh-Manali Highway. God knows who does the repair and maintenance work on this bridge. Hats off to the people who has built this road and bridges. Fabulous work. Towards right you can see a cave like opening which has been formed naturally because of wind erosion.
Thanks for visiting.

It is another gem of a shot with that typical ambiance of Ladakh. It is really amazing that you could select unique points of view in your first visit to the place. Excellent light management and dof. Great shot.

A impressive photo with good colours and depth. Shape of mountains is great. The rush hour must be a unknown word here :-)

Subho, this is wonderful. Makes you want to go there and feel the air. Very distinct landscapes.

A splendid capture of this rather desolate and inhospitable landscape. The point of view is excellent, using the bridge and the snaking road to draw the viewer in. Light, colours and clarity are all superb. Thanks for sharing.

Dobar dan, popodne.
Lep pogled na kanjon i most ...
Dobar snimak, kontrast i perspektiva, lepo pokazano mesto, lepe boje.
Surova ali ipak lepa priroda.
Lepo popodne i sve najbolje.

A pretty rough track that you had to traverse. The image shows clearly the desolation of this area. I imagine that it is difficult to keep these roads and bridges in a well-maintained state. I love the way that you have captured the snaking of he road across the landscape.

this place looks amazing! You have captured the drama and scale of this place so perfectly. A fascinating road and a commentary that does make you think who would be travelling this route. What an adventure though........thanks God for mobile phones. Stunning landscape imagery! Love the arch too!

Outstanding view of the brown-grey mountains and the small bridge. There is a great use of depth of field to hold the viewer in the foreground bridge as well as mountains in BG, and the excellent lighting conditions have allowed for very good color saturation. The overall impact is very strong. Very well done.

i got no words for the place.looks like a place far away from everything.and that small little bridge adds so much to the frame.

Fantastic mountain landscape, impressive small bridge, I am impressed with this uninhabited surrounding, splendid photo
Oceania (5174) 2014-01-30 11:03
No trees or grass, I can tell this place is very dry. The sky is so blue. It's sure was a nice day when you took the picture.
Kamilutka (8103) 2014-01-30 11:22
the road in your picture looks like some kind of silver serpent making its way through the mountains. This is interesting detail, especially with the tiny bridge in the central part. Good POV ensures very wide panorama and ideal DOF allows to enjoy the landscape in focus up to horizon. The colors are natural and vivid.
Thanks for sharing

In 1994 I travelled to Leh along this road (back and forth). I cannot remember this natural arch but I do remember that the landscape all along the road (a bustraject of 2 days from Manali) was awesome.
Here you present us well a part of this wonderful and impressive traject and you show us how the road has to wind through the landscape around the rocks and how it has to climb and to descend most of the time.
A wonderful bright impressive mountainous scenery!
Best regards, Paul

Ciao Subho, fascinating landscape, excellent clarity, splendid light and fantastic colors, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio

The distance to the bridge 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.
mcmtanyel (15647) 2014-01-30 16:26
Yes, I can see that natural arch. This whole place is exotically wild and breathtaking. Did you go there just to see the mountains or was there some other purpose to your passing through?
abmdsudi (45748) 2014-01-30 18:08
Almost a lifeless landscape nicely composed, rich in natural colours with its long perspective and strong diagonal lines constantly lead. There are enough attractive elements included to add the necessary effect with the bridge settles to meet the eyes as strong pointer. Amazing earth formation well shot, Congrats

Belle vue en plongée sur cette vallée et son pont routier. Très beau paysage de montagnes. Bien fait.

wow, it is beautiful dear Subho. You get a nice frame full with nature. I like the variety in nature and how you presented it with nice depth and lights. I like also the sharpness of this picture. Excellent presentation. Tfs.

Stunning beauty of these mountains the total aridity, a landscape that must be hard to travel with both cold and heat, but its charm is undeniable.
Magnificent this palette.
Perfect light management and sharpness.
Well done. I really love it.
Have a good weekend.
P / D. Very grateful for your kind congratulations
RhodieIke (11742) 2014-01-31 9:34
Indeed a lonely bridge in this vast rugged landscape in north India, fantastic the small open doorway in the cliff.
Great Pov, boy it must feel great here miles and miles away from another human being. Tfs,
Cricri (110295) 2014-01-31 9:46
Un paysage fantastique de ces montagnes, la vue plongeante sur la route et le petit pont, belle présentation, et note
danos (89691) 2014-01-31 10:24
very nice the view as the presentation of this little bridge that is the eye catching in this arid place.
I like the way that creates scale in the scene as the excellent light and colour management.Well done.
marina7 (8055) 2014-01-31 10:33
it's not even visible in the thumbnail, I mean the bridge:) Not only lonely, it's also tiny looking from this bird's-eye perspective. I like the stern and lifeless landscape under that gorgeous blue sky but the roads make me shiver:))
Thanks and best wishes!
Noel_Byrne (26651) 2014-01-31 10:55
This place looks so far away from anything, and your note makes me feel that even more! It is an amazing shot of this lonely place, and the fact that there is a bridge here is pretty incredible! I think I can see a sign beside it too! The light in this shot is magnificent and the colors are superb. Thanks for a very unique view of this unique place.
All the best

Superb shot of the Leh-Manali Highway and the barren mountain ranges .Good sharpness and lights .Keep sharing.TFS.

What an extraordinarily area, with these road swinging between the mountains.
The small bridge in the valley makes these picture pleasant.
Wonderful panorama view, in high quality.
Your picture is very pleasant to look at.
Excellent composition, with pleasant colours.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,
ourania (35164) 2014-02-02 9:39
a very wild and desolate place, a really fascinating landscape that you've exalted with the superb clarity, depth and contrasts of your picture. The presence of a bridge comes as a surprise, it looks so tiny and frail in this deserted place. I like the placement of the bridge and the roads, the vast depth and the shadows. Merciless light and dust should make travelling through this landscape challenging but exciting. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great week,
Angshu (56460) 2014-02-03 1:29
Your high vantage POV creates a good picture here with the bridge over the dried stream bed and the road cut through the mountain well depicted. The arch look good on the right side thanks to the strong light which creates a silhouette
COSTANTINO (58813) 2014-02-10 10:01

Fantastic mineral landscape of Transhimalayan road Subho, high altitude view, about your photo comment that 500 Km road is maintained by people from Nepal, Up and Bihar working in very hard conditions, a tribute to all of them, greetings
