This is the view of the Bhagirathi I,II and III peaks from the Bhojbasa. As the evening sun gradually disappearing in the horizon, the last rays illuminate the glorious trio.
Bhojbasa is the place where trekkers and pilgrims stay for a night before moving towards the Gaumukh-the origin of the river Ganges. The famous Ashrama of Lalbaba offers a cozy stay out there against a minimum amount of donation.

I like the clouds drifting over the peaks in this shot. I think the foreground is a bit too dark, but the illuminated mountaintops make up for it.
Thanks for sharing!

The mountain really looks beautiful contrasted against the shadows, Avishek. The dark clouds help to set it off. I think it might be even better if the foreground was not quite so dark--I'd like to be able to see it, as context for the peak. Still, it's beautiful as it is. Regards, Ken.

very beautiful light, and the mountain inthe clouds has some sort of mistery.
Like an unreachable place

Darun Bhagirathi-r chobi! I think my father might have stayed at lalbaba's ashram 30 years ago!
Great lighting!! It must have been a true spectacle to witness. I think this might have been a good place to use an HDR - that would bring the underexposed foreground into correct exposure.

C'est une superbe photo, les nuages se déchirent pour laisser place à cette somptueuse montage.
L'effet du soleil qui illumine cette paroi enneigée est exceptionnel.

Beautiful and opportune capture of the mighty snow clad peaks. The light is most astonishing. Well done Avishek.

C'est un moment particulier et bien capturer l'espace d'un instant entre les nuages qui laisse entrevoir la lumiére sur la montagne, belle scéne
Good day for you

Simply awesome! I frankly don't have language to express the beauty & I can imagine what you might have felt as the scene unfolded. The peaks peeing from behind the clouds, hot by the rays of the sun is brilliant!
