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.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Beyond

Have been travelling to the Himalayan regions of my country now for the past 5 or 6 vacations and have fallen in love with the mountains. They are awe-inspiring and beautiful at the same time. These pictures are from the eastern part of the Himalayas, from the north-east state of Sikkim.  It is also close to Darjeeling which is famous for its tea gardens and the ‘Darjeeling tea’. A land of rivers and mountains that extend beyond one’s vision. ImageThe Teesta River
