Situated at an altitude of 2,084 m in the Kumaon, Nainital is set in a valley containing a pear-shaped lake, the Naini lake.
It is believed that the Naini Lake is one of the 64 religious sites where parts of the charred body of Parvati fell on earth while being carried by her husband Shiva. The spot where Sati's green eyes (or Nain) fell, came to be called Nain-tal or lake of the eye.

A crowded composition with so many interesting elements and colorful to the limit that can only be possible in India. I liked the framing and presentation of this photo. The sharpness and depth are also flawless. Thanks for sharing. Best wishes,

Full colored picture, with many yellows, blues, reds and greens.
Seems to be a quiet place.

Missed this one. I like the repetition of the boats anbd the superb sharpness. Good colour saturation & punchy light contrasts with just a little oe in the highlights. Nice reflections in the bg green hillside in the water. The people add scale & animate the scene. Tfs!

Colorful boats and red roof-tops houses in fine view over the lake. Fascinating that this is in an altitude of better than 2000m, have green mid-summer nountains around, and fabulous green water color.
Great location for photography, I reckon, well taken shot.
