Organic mountains

By logomomo
This shot was taken on a 70-200mm F4L on Fuji Velvia.

At an altitude of over 3500m, the Nubra valley runs through some stunning Himalayan mountain lanscapes with peaks as high as 6000m common and some topping out at well over 7000m.

Here, the extremes of temperature fracture the rock and create vast scree slopes - the slopes dominate the tiny cattle feeding at their base. A strange lanscape, barren and dry but luscious and green near the water.

Stunning shot, the mountain slopes look quite surreal, and then contrast with the plain at the bottom. I love this shot, thank you for sharing it with us.

What a great shot. It doesnt look that interesting from the thumbnail - I hope it still gets lots of views, as in large its obvious you have put thought into it. Very clever composition. Angi

Very kind of you all - I have it enlarged to A1 and framed on my living room wall and for this shot, the bigger the print, the bigger the impact!

Great abstracted shot, severely underrated
I'd vote a couple of times to make it up if I could Wink
