Sundown at Ukhimath, Uttaranchal. Taken form the terrace of Maithani Lodge, the hotel where I stayed.
Ukhimath, the winter seat of Lord Kedarnath, has abundance of natural beauty. Apart from the beautiful terraced fields, and a serene ambience, it offers beautiful views of the peaks of Garhwal Himalayas. Chopta, from where the trek to Tunganath starts, is 40 km from Ukhimath, whereas Sari, the starting point of the trek to Deoria tal, is just 5km.

What chance to attend such gifts of nature... The colors of the sunset are beautiful and that is why I prefer your photo to black and white of our friend Michael. I like the balance of the image. Resting landscape, thank you Sagarneel.
With all my friendships and soon

Hi Sagar, Your pic. remind me my favourite song , aa chal ke tujhe mai le ke chalu ek yaise gagan ke tale, jaha gam bhi na ho aasu bhi na ho, bas pyar hi pyar pale... Great colour and good compo. Regards Niraj Sinha

This is dam great. The burning clouds are always great to see. But I would prefer some more fg as well. Still a nice indeed.

It looks like the mountain scenery captivated many people with its cool fresh air and natural scenery, especially at sunrise and sunset hours. It may not be easy to find a good frame with feature subject in addition to the mountain view or sky.
This is interesting color tone of the sky for your dreamy effect.

Excellent mood and colors in this photo. Nice POV.

If the Himalayas are the home of gods, I guess that those clouds are the smoke of their fireplaces. Simply gorgeous, the clouds and the profile of the mountains make a wonderful graphical arrangement. I don't need to mention the amazing colours, do I?

A lovely capture of the colours of the setting sun on the cloud formations.

Nice picture of the sky with the clouds drenched in sunset hues. The layers of the shadowed hills in the FG works well. A simple shot, but looks very beautiful!

Nice capture of the attractive scene, glowing clouds have been expertly depicted with a good framing putting a silhouette of the mountains at the bottom. Beautiful picture!
Best wishes, Hisashi

it appears like a mountain is one fire :)
Clouds of astonishing red appearance forming like a smoke signal from dark mountain silhuette create wonderful ambient where our imagination can take place and guides us to imaginary places, yes, to dreamland.
Wish you lovely Sunday,
