we started trekking from near the lake and kept walking...till we reached here(of course with n number of breaks). we saw our guide with the white hat lying there as if he was sunbathing on a mediterranean beach.we thought the destination was near.but he only turned to us with a wry smile and said its only the half way to the camp. the places and the mountains below look flat, but then optical illusions can make you believe what is not......
and all this @ > 5000 mts

Why did you at all want to move further... leaving such a fabulous place, I wonder.
It is another breathtaking shot, Dwaipayan, really wonderful. The pov is nicely chosen to show the beauty of Ladakh. Colors, sharpness and light - outstanding.
I sincerely thank you for sharing this memorable shot.

I'm almost more impressed by your note! But the photograph is extremely impressive in its own right. I'm interested in your comment on the way the lens has flattened out the perspective: I'm sure this was an extremely steep, tough hike. Having tried it in the Alps at a mere 3500 metres I can appreciate your efforts! Gorgeous. But have you "improved" the sky maybe??

Awesome, love the colours and light worth all those soar bones with such a long trek, to have such a spectacular landscape.
Love it, Tfs.

You were only halfway and the view was already so beautiful. So you will certainly have been rewarded for your effort when you reached the top.
Excellent sharpness, a well balanced picture.
Best regards, Paul

On sent l'effort qu'il reste à donner pour arriver jusqu'au lac dans cette composition. J'aime beaucoup la profondeur de l'image ainsi que la belle gestion de la lumière.

your guide were laying as if he were sunbathing in a Mediterranean beach. I agree with this affirmation, though this landscape is absolutely different.
I like the depth of field, with which we can see very far towards the horizon and the majestic mountains.
The blue lake is a great complement in your composition.
Light and colors managed finely, it's a beautiful photo.
