Photographer's Note

The Ganges plunges from the glacial ice at Gangotri. The spectacular setting of this most holy site is dominated by 2 major mountains in the Garwhal Himalaya - Shivling and the Bhagirathi Peaks.
The photo was taken on a morning which was very clear anyway - a polarising filter was used to maintain the definition of the 2000 metre high vertical wall of the peaks.
It is very difficult to maintain some sense of perspective on the Himalaya peaks simply because they are so big. The cloud helps in that respect.
