I captured this image in 1st week of July, 2012 when I traveled Nubra Valley. It is 150 kms from Leh (capital of Ladakh district). The valley is under the rest of the Tibetan Plateau, Nubra is a high altitude cold desert. The majority of the people at Nubra are Buddhists. In the western or lowest altitude end of Nubra Valley near the Line of Control i.e. the Indo-Pak border, along the Shyok River. The main road access to the Nubra Valley is over Khardung La pass (18,380 ft.) which is open throughout the year. Its status as the highest motorable road in the world. It is one of the beautiful place in the total Ladakh region.
Between Hundar and Diskit (under Nubra) lie several kilometres of sand dunes, and (two-humped) bactrian camels graze in the neighbouring "forests" of seabuckthorn.
The image when I took at the sunset time. The sun light reflected on the yellow stone and made golden beauty.
best wishes to all

This is an absolutely stunning photograph, Light-Shadow feast. No more comments from my side. It just pulled my mind to the place straight away.
I frequently visit your album, and always eager to see the next picture there.

Hi Swapan, Absolutely beautiful. The shades are well defined and the sunlight is well captured. The people on camels provide scale. Wonderful details. Thank for sharing

Incredible scene where light and colours create a dramatic and imposing landscape and the human figures even when on camels are dwarfed by their surroundings.Well done. regards. Klaudio.

nicely realised, the clouds shadows increase the sense of third dimension, the mountains slopes direct our view on the silhouetted group of camels.

Lepo popodne i sve najbolje.

Golden slopes with shades mingling fabulousely, but the most eyes catching elements are the camels caravan afoot of the mountains.
DOF and sharpness immaculately collected.
My cong.'s for an impressive stuff.

Splendid capture Swapan, the mineral faces of the mountain take superb golden hues, a safari on the bactrian camels in that cold desert is obviously unforgettable, regards
