[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The aerial panoramic photograph was shot in Leh from Khardung La (Altitude 18,380 feet ASL, highest motorable pass).

It is very unfortunate that this beautiful rainshadow location has been recently hit by strong cloudburst and complete washing out of major part of city with many casualties.

Hi Subhash,
good shot! I really like how the route seems too small into such strong landscape... Is a very high path!!!. That valley with the mountain range at the back looks really impressive.

hello Subhash

this one it is a great aerial panoramic shot,
the frontal POV and panorama framing
works well on this photo, i love the contrast
between background's cold and foreground's
warm colour tones, TFS


Hallo Subhash
What a pity that this beautiful view was hit by a cloudburst ruining some of its beauty. I just love the wide open space you captured here. One can see from here to very far and beyond. The clarity of the footpaths on the hills is just great and display so well. I tried to capture something similar in the game reserve of all the animal foot paths but it was not as successful as yours. It is a great view. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
