|Two rivers meet, full of poisonous minerals, scraped by glacial waters. Eventually the water becomes usable as it travels on it's trip from the Himalayas to the sea, far, far away. Little rain falls here.|

The depth of view is excellent in this picture of Ladakh you took in 2004, Gloria.
I have seen this confluence point with my own eyes though the distinct colours of these rivers were not on view then.
Thanks for sharing the picture.
BTW, how are you keeping? Still on the move or back home?

This is the point where two major famous rivers (Indus=Turquoise green & Zanzkar=Muddy) meet roadside if one travels from Leh to Srinagar, on your left. The place has heavenly charisma. The confluence finally terminates in much more wider river subsequently known as Indus only. This picture is that of the Confluence of the Indus and Zanskar Rivers taken in Ladakh, India at Nimu. The Indus runs through entire Ladakh all along by your side serving as a constant companion and you feel a sense of respect for this stream of water that is the lifeline of the people of Ladakh. I could not stop remembering all this since I love Ladakh & its people.
