I shoot it at the end of April, 2014 when I traveled Srinagar. Yusmarg or Yousmarg is a hill station in the western part of Kashmir Valley in the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir. It is situated 47 km south of Srinagar the capital of the state.
Yusmarg in Kashmiri means The Meadow of Jesus. It is believed by the natives that Jesus came to Kashmir and stayed at Yusmarg for some time. It is an alpine valley covered with snow clad mountains and the meadows of Pine and Fir, It lies 13 km south of Charari Sharief a town of Budgam district of Jammu and Kashmir. It is situated at the bank of Doodganga River which is a tributory of Jehlum River. It is a popular tourist destination, nestled with in the imposing Pir Panjal peaks, a sub range of Himalaya.

Hi Swapan, this is a lovely, untypical shot from Jammu & Kashmir. I like the minimalistic effect of the lone tree and the sheep against the backdrop of green. Well composed, good work.

Interesantan tekst o Yusmarg in Kashmiri sa opisom, lep pogled i trenutak ...
Dobar trenutak snimka i kontrast, lepo pokazana zelena livada sa drvetom i ovcama.
Dobar rad i kompozicija, lepo uhvacen trenutak sa ovcama.
Prijatno vece i mirna noc, sve najbolje u novoj nedelji koja je pocela, srecno.

Green pasture, tree leaves, and the sheep are grazing
Shade tree, if the crop was not, in my opinion, was better
Record the angle right
Good clarity and sharpness
Good luck and good night

Sublime apple green hues of the pastures where sheeps are grazing Swapan, excellent resolution, regards

A very idyllic and beautiful view. It looks like the sheep are grazing on the huge lawn of a palace, not just an ordinary field. The tree is of course a very important part of the composition and you have placed it well just slightly off the centre. What a pity that Kashmir is not always as peaceful as this seems to be.

Fantastic light that changes from bright green foreground gradully to darker shadow in background. That bare tree is well placed and the grazing sheep give this nice feeling.

dommage que l'ombre de l'arbre soit un peu coupé

jhm (159891) 2014-08-26 3:13
These picture is a nice pastoral the soft and the light of colour make these picture lovely.
The sheep are a very nice addition in the meadow.
Very sharp and clear taken, with all details clear to see.
I like these nice picture, TFS.
dekanski (6006) 2014-08-26 9:46
Nice, very nice Swapan.
Only one small gripe - had to be seen the entire shadow of the tree!
PaulVDV (32587) 2014-08-26 14:55
A very peaceful picture.
Well composed with that lonely tree between the sheep.
I also like the shadows of the branches at the bottom.
Best regards, Paul
jmdias (68605) 2014-08-26 17:45
very beautiful compo. I liked the different zones of light, the graphic effect of the nude tree and the disposition of these animals in the scenery. well done. TFS.
shreya2000 (2795) 2014-08-27 6:00
Very good picture showing the grazing of the sheeps. Composition is good. I like the natural colours. However the upper part should have been more sharp.
Thanks for sharing.
ikeharel (78193) 2014-08-27 7:37
Fabulous green color of the pasture, shining but halved by shades - that's created a wonderful texture.
The addition of the naked tree and the sheeps herd scattered, all culminates beautifully on scene.
COSTANTINO (69590) 2014-08-27 9:16
Hello dear friend

I could say artistic and almost minimalistic
the light effect on this composition fantastic
have a nice time
danos (103082) 2014-08-28 6:41
very nice the green landscape with the animals tp grazing at Yusmarg.The existence of the lonely tree with its shadow in combination with the tight frame makes the image even more effective.
PiotrF (22898) 2014-08-28 14:11
This is untypical shot from Jammu and Kashmir.
Excellent composition, colour and presentation be superb

nikkitta (17068) 2014-08-28 15:53
What a charming peaceful scene taken in not so quiet place of India
Like the well positioned tree and shadows on the very green field
Well done, regards
berek (50508) 2014-08-29 7:14
sheep, the green background, and the only tree, I really liked the composition. very creative work.
Fis2 (106256) 2014-09-29 12:14
Very impressive colors and light.
Very well done.
Noel_Byrne (33588) 2014-10-04 9:14
The light here is really interesting, it looks as I imagine this scene would if it was recreated on a stage. It could be a scene from near my own home with the lush green and the animals. The fade to black in the upper part of the frame is intriguing and your framing is really nicely considered and created. Nicely done.
Cricri (125786) 2014-10-07 11:06
Une composition paisible, lumineuse, joliment bien composer et présenter dans une très belle lumière
