AS I was zooming on the mountain tops near the village of Chitkul, I spotted this dilapidated and deserted hut among the pines, covered with fresh snow. I asked the villagers why they build huts so high in the mountains that too in the middle of a pine forest. What they replied was very interesting. They said they did not built it..it is the handiwork of either the Indian or the Chinese army who built these for night shelters during ruotine reconnaissance treks. So i name it the spying hut :-)
Thanks for looking.

Dear Mr. Subho,
I like the hut in the middle of the photo. I think a great patience and art work you may have required for post processing of this pic. Am i true?

hello Stagn, it is an interesting one indeed. I like the atmosphere here a lot with so much snow covered areas. Almost every inch of the frame is covered with snow. Great place for the hut, interesting too. You spotted it nicely and the presented it superbly. Nice one. Tfs.

What a crisp winter scene, I think I can see my breath looking at this! A beautiful combination of white and blue. The little spying hut is a nice addition to the scene, it certainly is well camouflaged. Just shows we never know when somebody is watching, even somewhere as remote as this.
All the best

The bright light and the blue, white and green tones make this a very attractive and eye-catching composition. It's so bright it almost hurts my eyes. I guess sun-glasses are necessary in this area. The story behind the hut is interesting. Indian or Chinese soldiers?

very nicely captured winter scene with loads of trees and a lonely hut hidden behind them. Nicely composed and with rich colors. Good light and sharpness.
Thanks for sharing

You're spying on spying huts, I see! Very nice photo but I have had enough of the cold, would rather not see snow till next winter, thank you very much! I am afraid I can't have much say in it, my wife was texting me that they had an inch of snow back home.
Greetings from (finally) sunny but frigid Istanbul,

That is chilling, not just the snowy image, but also the fact that the hut could either be Indian or Chinese.
To imagine that this photo is clicked in April. Diverse India!
Great capture, and that you saw the hut.

Nice winter photo, I'd say a rarity because we do not see many photos with snow on TE.
Excellent forest trees close-up photo with very nice colors, perfect light, very good clarity. Nice contrast against blue sky. The well-chosen tight crop eliminates all unwanted distractions.

Magnificent composition, showing very well the harshness of winter in that area, but also the charm, yet the forest and its trees, covered in snow. The lookout hut almost goes unnoticed in the deep snowy forest.
A colorful perfect very natural.
A bright image with optimum clarity.
Good job. I love it.
Enjoy a good weekend.
