UUU Challenge

When monsoons arrive, vendors arrive and set up shop on the pavements. The eyes are drawn to these colorful umbrellas as they cover up the sidewalks.


Weekly Photo Challenge: Layer

For this challenge I travel back to the Himalayas. The mountains seem to be spread out layer after layer in shades and hues going from dark to light or vice-versa. The pictures here are of the Himalayas taken from different regions.
