Hello Nirmal! Very original take. Cheers!

Namaste Nirmal,
this is a wonderful, well composed, simple and clear presentation of a lush Himalayan mountain meadow high up in the hovering clouds of the monsoon season. You are sharing a great atmospheric beauty, silence, and density. Thank you!
With best regards,

Hi Nirmal
A interesting capture of this tall looking wildflower. The white blossoms don't stand out as nice as they could with the grey background. But still a nice to share.
We have a similar looking flower here called Cow Parsnip, even the seeds heads look the same. It grows 4 or 5 feet tall. Bears love it.
