First rays of the sun illuminating the snow covered peaks when the lower hills are still in darkness. For me there cannot be anymore beautiful sight than this.
Shot taken in Dhanaulti a little known small hill station 24 kms uphill to the famous tourist town of Mussoorie. I had plans to stay in Mussoorie but found it to be a dirty, over crowded and highly commercialised town. Did not stay there more than a night, cancelled by reservations in the hotel and moved up to this beautiful hill village full of snow and pines. I was rewarded with this view the next morning.
Thanks for viewing.

A very evocative image of dawn breaking over the mountains. Ideally exposed and with superb colours and clarity. Truly, very beautiful.

Good attraction over the trees in the form of golden sun rays. Well captured. I like it.
PS : I have visited Dhanaulti twice but not seen situation like you.

I have heard that Dhanaulti and Kanatal are beautiful places, and your picture does present a wonderful view from the former. Beautiful light on the mountain and streaks of snow on the trees.

Dobar tekst o mestu sa opisom, lep pogled i trenutak ...
Dobar trenutak snimka, ostrina i kontrast, lepo pokazano drvece i planina sa snegom, lepe boje.
Dobra kompozicija, lepa panorama.
Prijatno vece i lepa noc, sve najbolje.
A good article on the place with a description, a nice view and a moment ...

Who wouldn't like to wake up to this kind of view? Snow-clad trees below a snow-covered, sun-lit mountain under a clear blue sky are hard to beat for beauty. This is also a well cropped photo with excellent light and colours. Without having ever seen Mussoorie I am sure you made a wise decision to move here.

wow! This is beautiful dear Subho. I like the panoramic presentation and love the layers. Great mountain-scape with fine looking snow on those. Magical soft light made your composition just superb. Great shot. Tfs.

nice panoramic landscape. Amazing white tops of mountains in full light. Good shot.
Have a nice evening.

Indeed what a view to wake up to, the sun is just catching the snow capped mountain just right, the pines in the shade.
Well managed, Tfs,

The principle of the thirds is respected, the sky, the mountain and the trees. The point of view is showing the details and the colours of the mountain. The good luminosity is enhancing the colours. Have a nice day.

Excellent mountains panorama photo. I like the nice light contrast and also the well balanced colors. The white mountains against blues sky, perfect.
Very well done.
Wish you a nice week.
