~ 6 Km To Go ~
We were in our trek route towards Gomukh. It was only 6 km from here. Gomukh, the sacred hindu pilgrimage and as well as a popular trek for all... It is the source of river Ganges and Gomukh is the snout of the Gangotri glacier, which was in the root of the famous trio. Mt. Bhagirathi 1, 2 & 3. In this picture you can see the trio together...
A very pleasant way which is full with natural beauty.
~ Enjoy It ~

A stunning shot of the mountains.
It is very well composed, with a f/g triangle for strength, lovely changes of terrain going into the b/g, following the rule of thirds and with a winding path to a strong vanishing point. The crowning detail is the kilometre marker, perfectly placed.
Have a lovely day,

la strada non appare delle più agevoli, ma i paesaggi attorno sono grandiosi e sono stati per te l'occasione per fare una splendida fotografia nella quale roccia e ghiaccio si contendono la scena in un insieme che suscita ammirazione per la bellezza stupefacente di questi luoghi.
Ciao, buona giornata e buon inizio di settimana

A well presented mountain landscape. Good idea to include the milepost, which helps give the scene depth and creates a story for the viewer to weave. Fine technical presentation.

Beautiful shot of the Bhagirathi group of mountains.
Very sharp colourful and superb light.
The white mountains make good contrast with the blue sky and the brown hill in the FG.
Excellent shot I love it.

Très bonne journée.

a Wow! shot this! A clever idea to include the distance marker and what an awesome view. A stunning trek I suspect and one that must leave quite an impression upon you. Glorious image!
Have a good week - B.

Marvellous photo. The perfectly lit white mountains are the main focal point of this photo. There is a great use of depth of field to hold the viewer in the foreground road with distance marking stone as well as mountains in BG, and the excellent lighting conditions have allowed for very good color saturation. The overall impact is very strong. Very well done.

J'aime beaucoup le choix du cadrage vertical dans cette composition. Il donne de l'ampleur et de la profondeur. Encore 6 km à faire avant d'arriver et ce n'est pas le plus facile. Le ciel est superbe.

First of all, it is a fantastic composition with layers of different colors in vertical format.
The peaks, being sandwiched by brown/deep grey and blue,look very bright.
Then comes the colors and then clarity and sharpness... simply outstanding!
It shows how rich one's archive can be!

Hello Subhendu ,
A beautiful mountain view , with superb and impressive white peaks in the BG , dominating teh scene . The little marked stone is a fine bonus to teh composition .

A stunningly detailed mountainscape set against a perfect blue sky and captured in excellent light. The peaks are absolutely amazing in form. It looks as though the main mountain had lost its top ! The sense of depth is very good here, with a good foreground and the road leading us into the scene, giving scale to the image. Great capture.
holmertz (44552) 2013-12-16 9:42
This is very nicely composed with several layers of mountains and good diagonals that balance the view perfectly. The light and colours are really stunning, so are the contrasts and sharpness. The little sign saying 6 is a nice detail.
ourania (35916) 2013-12-16 11:14
I like very much how you built your composition in a vertical frame, separating different textures and colours with graceful and rhythmical diagonals. We don't see the peaks of the slopes in the foreground but the snow capped peak is the climax of your composition and looks splendid and captivating. The light is clear and delicious, the blue sky sets off the earthy colours of the mountains effectively. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,

Namaste, my friend Subhendu,
yes, the natural beauty of this landscape is breathtaking, and you offers it to us with a fantastic composition.
I like the milestone with the number 6, which is a real eye-catcher at the first glance to your photo.
But the ensemble of the 3 peaks covered with snow, and its great contrast with the deep blue sky, complete your excellent photographic work.
A beautiful shot.
jemaflor (88857) 2013-12-17 9:03
great landscape well presented, well seen the detail with 6 and interesting contrast betwween the fg and the snow covered peaks in the Bg.
nikkitta (16476) 2013-12-17 17:20
What a place to do a trekking and with time to take photos
Like frame, format and POV to admire the snow covered mountains, along with the view of the rute towards them
Wnen in Paraguay, all the time there was scenes very similar at the ones seen in India

The mile marker has been kept strategically in the frame...well done with it. The vertical frame works well and its the towering Himalayan peaks in the BG which makes this shot
