The magic of a Chaukori morning
When I woke up that morning
a thin rain was falling
I went out for a walk
to breath the pure wet air
it was a bit cold...
with my heart crying
I prepared my luggage
but... before leaving the room
I saw something of clear in the sky
a sort of ray of light.
Woke up my Nikon
and run up to the viewpoint
to be prepared
for the changing of the weather.
In less than half an hour
all the mountains chain
reveals me its magic presence
where before I saw only clouds
now slowly appeared the majestic white snowy peaks
of Nanda Devi (7,816 metres -25,645 feet)
and the peaks of Panchchuli.
A show I will never forget.

Well done, Luca. I like the composition. The elements are nice and the long lens and high contrast bring them together. I like the shot very much. But two nits about the posting here (1) I wish it were the full 800 pixels, and (2) I think the frame is a bit large.

This is really a terrific landscape. Mountains are majestic and clouds over the hills is giving a soothing effect. Everything whether it's snow or mountains or the greenery, is giving a solid punch to this excellent composition. Well done.

Simply stunning view of the snowy mountains along with such greenery. Very nice note! Just a comment, the broad border has taken much portion of the landscape which is not desirable though I really like the shot very very much.

The majestic Nanda Devi was once the highest peak in the British Emprie. So crisp and fresh and just beckons me to get my mountain shoes on once more.
Excellent division of thirds.

Un India alpina che contrasta con la polvere delle pianure...
Una composizione "rubata" o regalata in una magico momento di rivelazione. Contrasti forti, linee e forme che si stagliano nette nel cielo, un quadro che ci fa ricordare o fantasticare.
Sono stato in india una volta ma non per turismo. E l'himalaya non l'ho mai vista.
