"Discipline is loving firmness. It is direction." This is what the sign says put up by the BRO "Border Roads Organisation". Sudden bursts of greenery come up down in some valleys where water is passing through small streams and land is firm enough to hold it. As can be seen the mountains are totally barren owing to their loose sand like behavior and inability to retain water. That is why Ladakh is one of the highest and coldest desert on earth.
My memory for the name of this place has faded, but I have strong reasons to believe that this is "Pashkum", one of the first villages after Kargil en-route to Leh on the basis of my photo series I shot. My be some TE members can figure that out exactly.

Une photo de montagnes avec beaucoup de profondeur.Dommage que l'inscription à l'avant plan soit coupée mais cette pierre a l'avantage de nous offrir un premier plan.

Discipline and firmness is what most people lack:)
I enjoy this ascetic scenery and think it goes very well with the title. Superb view excellently presented. My compliments.

il giallo della pietra indicatrice ben contrasta con l'omogeneità cromatica del panorama.
