The saltwater Tso Moriri Lake, which is about 15,075 feet (4,595 meters) above sea level, is approximately 18 miles (29 kilometers) long and up to five miles (eight kilometers) wide. Picturesquely situated in secluded, breathtakingly beautiful Changthang Valley, the high-altitude Tso Moriri Lake is fewer than 155 miles (250 kilometers) southeast of Leh. Travelers can only visit with a permit. Flanked by lofty mountains, this serene lake and the area around it attract a range of wildlife, including migratory birds, marmots, wild asses, and (rarely spotted) Tibetan wolves. Nomadic herders of goats, yaks, and cows live in the lake's vicinity. Tsomoriri is an administratively declared Wetland Reserve.
The above shot is taken from the roof of the monastery located in Korzog village which is located by the side of the Lake. The village is home to very few people who depend on the water of the lake for agriculture and animal rearing. The village is an important stop over for the Chagpas a semi-nomadic tribe of the region.

mi piace come hai composto l'immagine contrapponendo all'azzurro del cielo nella parte alta i colori caldo dell'edificio nella parte bassa così da racchiudere in una bella cornice le montagne e le acque che si antepongono davanti ad esse.
Splendido soggetto e nitidezza e colori superbi.
Ciao e buona domenica

beautiful view, dear Subho. Another nice one in your gallery. Great composition. Like the bright light and vibrant colours. Excellent depth as well. The lake is looking nice from this POV, which seems a bit different to me. Nice one. Tfs.

What a view. I think I can almost taste the cold fresh air as I look out over this expansive mountainscape. The light is ideal to bring out the striking earth tones of the rock and the blue sky, and your including themulti colored flags is a genius move, as the flutter of the flags and the vibrant color breathe real life into the shot. Thanks as always

This very neat and pleasant composition is so pretty it could be used to attract tourists to this place (what a pity a special permit is needed). The light is beautiful and the view across the lake towards the snow-clad peaks is stunning. The prayer flags flying diagonally across the left corner add colours and a bit of exotism, and they are perfectly balanced by the small cloud to the right. The composition is well "anchored" in the roof of the building, more easily identified as a monastery from the orange and yellow paint.

wonderful composition with perfect balance. Stunning view of the mountains across the lake. Great inclusion in the FG and the prayer flags. Thanks for sharing and have a great new week ahead.

really like this! It is such an unusual composition and one that works so beautifully. I love the splashes of colour here which contrast and highlight the glorious vista so effectively. An original and wonderfully conceived image, presented perfectly.

The distance between the roof and the mountains is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and the colours of the mountains. The colours are enjoying a great light. Have a nice dya.

Dobar dana, popodne.
Interesantan i dobar tekst o mestu, sa opisom, lep pogled ...
Dobar trenutak snimak, ostrina, kontrast i perspektiva, lepo pokazano mesto i planina sa snegom, lepe boje.
Lepo popodne i sve najbolje u novoj nedelji koja je pocela, srecno.
Good afternoon, this afternoon.

I like the rugged mountains with snow on the top. The colorful flags on the side add interest to the picture. The composition is simple and neat, very nice.
Kamilutka (8107) 2014-02-24 7:40
this is truly amazing view and the landscape looks almost unreal. The colors of the flags and the wooden balcony contrast with the more muted ones of the hills and the lake. Interesting POV and original composition.
Very well given sharpness.
Thanks for sharing and all the best

I have to ask, is it easy to get a permit? I would imagine that the authorities are trying to maintain the integrity of this beautiful, unspoilt wetland area.
You have shown a great 'eye' for composition, here, the roof giving us the depth and the warm colour contrast, when seen against the smooth lake and cold, rugged mountains.
I just love the inclusion of the flags fluttering in the breeze.
My warm regards,
mcmtanyel (25522) 2014-02-24 17:15
I think addition of a few colorful objects in the foreground has enriched the scenery. An excellent photo of the lake, like the previous one.
Graal (103036) 2014-02-25 7:03
view is very nice. Friends all told you. Good photo-work. I like this picture also.
Have a nice evening.
nikkitta (17066) 2014-02-25 15:26
What a well composed capture, mountains and lake at the back and framing them prayer flags and the colorfull wooden roof of the temple
Sharpnees and color contrast at their best
Very well done along with informative note
fabbs99 (17175) 2014-02-25 23:33
Nice image of the Tso Moriri.Sharp with good details, well saturated colors and nice composition. Well done.TFS.

Un paysage de montagnes magnifiques, belle lumière sur le sommet encore bien enneigée, le contraste des couleurs sont très jolies, pleine de gaieté avec les petits drapeaux sur le coin de l'image
Angshu (56760) 2014-02-26 3:03
Aaah...from the roof of the Drukpa Kagyu monastery in Korzok...quite nice with the prayer flags against the blue sky. Though I wish you showed us more of the monastery in the frame, I understand the contraint. Tso Moriri is looking surprisingly un-blue. Very nice capture
COSTANTINO (67258) 2014-02-27 12:48
shot with the greatest lightness and sharpness
I liked the amazing blue of the sky and
the covered by snow the top mountains
the lake is looking nice from this pov
adramad (47616) 2014-02-28 12:26
Wonderful composition with this superb landscape, starting with the serene waters of the lake and those banks that are increasingly higher, to reach the snow-capped peaks, magnificent textures and tones of the land of mountains, which contrast with this splendid blue sky, flags colors we see in the upper left corner is a great touch.
A colorful perfect very natural.
A bright image with optimum clarity.
Good job. I love it.
Enjoy a good weekend.
ourania (48666) 2014-03-05 11:00
an original and interesting composition, a great idea to introduce the meaningful warm colours to this suggestive view. The minimal presence of the building works effectively and we can easily infer the relation of the building to this magnificent environment. There's superb depth and very pleasing colours. I also like how the flags are flying over the scenery, we don't get a hint as to where they are tied. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,
shreya2000 (2659) 2014-03-07 4:18
Excellent color management. Sharpness and clarity is very good. I like the layer of the lake. Thanks for sharing.
