india is a truly secular country and it is evident everywhere in the country,as one travels and looks around.even at close to 13,000 feet,in a very remote place it is evident.here in the pic one can clearly see the signs and symbols of hinduism(the red flags and the trishul of lord shiva) and budhism(the colorful prayer flags)next to and intermingled with each other.

a fascinating shot of this beautiful place. Love the symbolism here and can understand why this place would inspire and uplift people to place tributes such as these here. A compelling and thought provoking piece of evocative imagery! Like it a lot!
Have a great weekend - Brian.

Whatever one may think of religions, they often bring great colours to a photo. You have used them well to brighten this fine view of the lake and snow-covered mountain. The swastikas will give a lot of Europeans bad feelings, although Hinduism should not be blamed for that.

I like this scene! It's simple but also very charming and beautiful with all these elements of foreground. Like the way you cropped and creatively framed the work. Well done.

From the thumbnail image I could not make out the scene. It's beautiful, with the color of that melt-water pond, and the small flags adding a dramatic color highlight.

Very fine detail from that mountain area. I like the colored specific flags, well taken scene.
Have a nice weekend.

This is a beautiful scene, the cold atmosphere of the water and the mountain are contrasted really well with the red of the flags. I really like off centre composition too, excellent shot thanks for sharing!
Best wishes from Ireland
