[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I took this picture in the evening on a warm day in July 2004 on my way back from a day's climb to a high pasture above my village located in the sub-Himalayan region of district Chamba in Himachal Pradesh. I had gone up to study the habitat of nomad Gujjars -- keepers of milch cattle from Punjab who migrate to the mountains during summers every year.
It is late in the evening and the sunlight is fast fading on the 14000 ft high Chaini Jote range to the east.
Contrast level enhanced a bit to darken the hill in the foreground and to highlight the twilight effect on the horizon.

Hi Ram
Very interesting to take a view facing east at sunset, to catch those last rays of light on the mountain tops.
Scoring out of 10 I'd give it the following ratings-
Composition: 8
Colours: 9
DOF: 9

Very well done and thanks for sharing.

Wondeful mountains and light - how I would have loved to be there with you. With such a wide range of light and dark in the picture you did well not to end up with anythign over or underexposed.

Hi Ram,
Nice pic of this mountains, I love the sun coloured parts and clouds upon the valley. Well captured!
