Photographer's Note

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.
