A spectacular view of bhagirathi peaks from bhojwasa 14km from gangotri.
Bhagirathi II, III, and I (left to right, 6512m, 6454m, and 6856m), from the West .The highest peak of the Bhagirathi Group forms a complex and topographically complicated massif. Bhagirathi Parbat has three major peaks. It stands at and dominates the end of the valley leading up to Gaumukh which is the end of the Gangotri Glacier and the source of the river Ganga. The upper part of the river Ganga is also called Bhagirathi, and both the mountain and the river are named after King Bhagirath.

It is a pleasure to see such views of the fantastic high peaks of the Himalaya . I like a lot the strong contrast between lit parts and shady ones (even i know some ones don't like when dark parts are present) , and also the contrast white snow perfect blue sky .
Oustanding sharpness , too .
Great work .

what a lovely place it is and what a presentation... A remarkable moment when we see it for the first time in our trek route. Like this view from bhojbasa. A bright one with good contrast. The flakes of clouds added a lot to it. Really a nice one. Tfs.

Hi, isn,t it strange? I have just seen the photo of the same peks but wbith different light, but the POV seems the same. I like also this view in sunshine, with the beautiful blue sky. What a coincidence!

This peaks are indeed spectacular and your composition is fantastic with the dark hills at the fg framing so well the white peaks behind with the blue at the bg are magnificent.
