Pangong Tso - First Glimpse

Newer Older

The first glimpse of the pangong Tso coming in from Leh is through a defile in the mountain range.

The very Indian Lady with many lips to speak, watches silently.

    lol, I'm not sure about magic, but thanks ......

    I want a double exposure lens filter to get some things but don't want to do a dippy with .......I got this medallion and want to get both sides as it's inscribed. I used to do doubles all the time but that was in pro film studio where it was "easy", and the tripod was already set up, and we're talking people portraits, not macros or micros. If I can get this done, lol, now that might be "magic".

    Breathtaking shot Anoop. Hard to imagine a desert looking like paradise, but this comes close.

    oh wow this is how it looks even in nov ?
    i guess all that talk about Leh's best visit time from May to October is based on that road connecting Leh and Kargil which gets snowed under in winter
    the blue is indeed magical and so are the clarity and details that emerge with the exuberant sun shining down on the Tso and the valley
