this pic is from the region of ladakh.Ladakh is nature at its extreme. A land of freezing winds and blazing sunlight, Ladakh is a cold desert lying in the rain shadow of the Great Himalayas and other smaller ranges. Little rain and snow reaches this dry area, where the natural forces have created a fantastic landscape.
Ladakh is at an average elevation of 2,700 m to 4,200 m above sea level. The aridity of this region is due to its location in the rain shadow area of the Great Himalayas, elevation and radiation of heat from the bare soil. The region is extremely dry, with an annual rainfall as low as 10cubic centimeter. Greenery is a sign of villages.

A beautifully proportioned photo with great depth. I like the foreground interest - some kind of shrine, is it? - and the strong perspective view of the bus or truck in the distance. Very sharp and the composition is so well balanced. Nicely done, and a good note.

I like your composition and the V form of the valley, great perspective of the road and good placement of the car, a beautiful photo of this wild landscape

This looks indeed very arid and there is probably little hope that the few small clouds will bring any rain. Still I remember some areas around Leh as being fairly green. The chorten shows that in spite of the difficult conditions this is an area of human settlements. Thanks to the small building in the foreground, the car in the distance and the mountain-ranges seen in several layers the photo has a good depth. The harsh light has been handled well.

ogni tua foto Ŕ una piccola parte dell'India che conosciamo poco; luoghi ai quali l'immaginario occidentale lega l'avventura e che si fanno notare per l'asprezza del paesaggio, la scarsa agibilitÓ delle strade e l'altitudine che ne impedisce in pieno inverno l'accesso, mai facile anche durante le piogge monsoniche.
Bella la composizione, i colori ed il contrasto.
Ciao e buona settimana

I love the moving vehicle at the third intersection as a firm anchor point for the eye to hover around this wide rugged hostile land. It's nicely composed and exposed, great colours and excellent overall contrast, the abandoned chorten provides the extra foreground interest. A fine effort indeed, thks for sharing, Congrats

The caption "Rain Shadow" is accompanied with your photograph. I traveled Ladakh at the end of June, 2012 almost 18 days including Zanskar. Ladakh is famous for its deep blue sky.
Excellent clarity and good depth of field.
with best wishes and thanks for sharing
