  1. I love the Ki Monastery pic. Even though the monastery looks awesome, they are dwarfed by the mountains :)

  3. Good ones. Why the word 'PHOTOGRAPHY' on each shot... just takes up more space, i think.

  4. Wonderful images, all of them.

    Pin Valley: The leading point (where the hills converge) may be shifted off the centre.

  12. Your visitors will be instantly all feverish (as in deep sense of craving), or bowled over, or on their toes to savour just a fraction, and express just as much..... at the least! - Lakshmi

  16. Hey Neelima,
    You have beautiful shots.
    A word about the pic captioned " Sculptures in Spiti". Those aren't sculptures. That landscape is what is left behind after years of soil erosion from the mountains.
    :D

    1. ha ha, I know they are created by erosion, sculptures is a fancy way of saying the same! ;)
