*Nilkantha Peak & The Moon*
Photo captured at early morning when the first rays of sun enlighted this beautiful peak. At the top there you can find the presence of the moon...
Neelkanth (21640 ft) is a major peak of the Garhwal
division of the Himalayas, in the Uttarakhand region of the Indian state of Uttaranchal . Although substantially lower than the highest peaks of the region, it towers dramatically over the valley of the Alaknanda River and rises above the Hindu holy town of Badrinath, only 9 km to the east. Frank Smythe described the peak as "second only to Siniolchu in Himalayan beauty."

Hi Lord Shiva!
I like very much your great composition!
Light, forms and attractive blue, the main subject "the peak" and of course the moon are all so beautiful!
Thanks for sharing,

A fine study in light and shadow. Well composed with subtle nuances of tone.

as simple as beautiful!
I like the light management, how the silhouette works against/with the deep blue sky
well seen and done

the eye catching of Nilkantha peak and after that the Moon make the image so rare and unique.The snowy peak contrast perfect with the blue of the sky.

Hello Subhendu - This works well in the format you have chosen and I think it would work equally well with a square crop (although you would lose the moon)where it would have a strong abstract feel and the simple, strong shapes would have a powerful presence. Warm regards rosemary

A stunning image in a well contsructed vertical composition that makes wonderful use of the lit peaks and the moon. The silhouetted montains in the V-shape sit well at the bottom.
Beautiful - TFS.
Kind Regards, Ann
