This is an impressive high altitude road through the mountains. It was good to include the vehicle in the FG. Interesting rugged terrian to build a road. This is a very well taken image.
Kind Regards, Ann

a nice catch indeed. The view is very eye catching. You composed it superbly with the car in FG. Like the depth and natural colour tone. Love the sharp image which reminds my those days in Sikkim. Tfs.

Good and efficient composition with the car put in one corner giving the starting point for us to follow the road like a snake and disappearing in the stones of the mountains.

The image conveys very well the tough conditions of the mountain, and high altitude.
Very good sharpness and details.

Nice documentary shot. The almost monochrome palette suits it well. Can't think of snow yet, just had too much of it last winter:)
