This was the first photograph I took the day we were hitting the Gamukh glacier at around 0530 Hrs. The name of the Peak is Bhagirathi - are the group of three high peaks namely Bhagirathi - I,II,III with the height of 6856,6512,6454.Gamukh Glacier lying jast below the Bhagirathi peak. Gamukh glacier is the origin of GANGA river.
Just can't explain the view thru this photograph but the naked eye view was atleast 1000 times better than the photograph..!!We have to wait around half an hour in -6 temparature to capture the first sunlight of the peak.

Hello Supriya. I took a look at the workshop and conclude that I like your original posting better. I think the dynamic light range of the original appeals to the visual sense of beauty from being there in person. All is dark and cold until the sunlight awakens the peaks to a new day. Some people simply see sunlight, but I see a beauty that is difficult to describe. It comes from spending time up in the mountains. Makes me feel very small and insignificant compared to an incredible beauty that keeps overwhelming me. I cannot wait to get out and up there again. Thanks for stopping by.

nice presentation of this three peaks with a nice point of view. Nice light of the top of snow peaked mountain. Silhouetted mountains in FG completes a fine composition. I have to say original post is much better than the WS. Light and colours are superb and original. Thanks for sharing.
Wish you and your family a prosperous and happy new year.

Amazing early morning sunlight which contrasts with much of the photo which is in the shade. Makes a great composition and reminds me of a photo I posted from Nepal. Tfs, Marlene

perfect moment for capturing this wonderful mountain. There is a nice contrast between the shadowed areas and the illuminated peak. Love the golden tones against the dark blue. Very well done!

Amazing composition. I imagine his excitement to see in person these magnificent mountains bathed by the morning light, slowly getting the light of day. Beautiful colors, great light and very good sharpness.

la magie de cet instant est incontestable, les lumières féériques, le zone d'ombre inquiétante.
C'est l'instant où il fallait prendre cette photo.
Mes compliments et une bonne année 2010.

amazing this view. I liked the iluminated summits, the golden details did a nice contrast with the blue of the sky. nice job

Such a moment is magical and you caught it well. I wonder it it would not have been worth waiting some more minutes to have more light win agaist all this shade...
Happy New Year !

What a spectacular scenery! The golden light on the peaks was well worth waiting for!
A great POV and excellent composition and light management.
All the best for 2010!
avene (12675) 2010-01-05 10:37
your timing for this photo was perfect, I like a lot the drama of sunlight only on the peaks.
the WS goes in the direction I was about to suggest, but I think it is too extreme (and the frame is way too heavy and elaborate), you need to retain the contrast between light and shadow for this photo to have a wow-effect. minor adjustments of levels and curves would be enough to deal with the slight digital fog. but that's not a major point. great shot, I like it a lot.

Ciao Supriya. This is a magic idea between light and shadows. perfect sharp. What atmosphere!
pierrefonds (56436) 2010-01-13 16:47
The point of view leads my eyes toward the peaks of the mountains which is giving depth to the composition. The subject is well framed. The reflection of the light on the snow is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.

Very nice view of high mountains at the morning. I like the partial lightning and the good setting of the exposure which allows details in both shadows and highlights.
boa (5995) 2010-01-24 13:16
it doesn`t get much prettier than this. Wonderful morning sunlight in amazing surroundings. It`s difficult to imagine how impressive the mountains are, if you have not been here, but this one is good! Tfs!
Angshu (55375) 2010-02-14 8:02
I have never heard of this place Bhojbasa, before. Fine exposure here as the top of the peak is kissed by the morning light and the exposure also helps us see the details in the shaded FG as well. Good work!
