I really like the effect of the plateau seeming to stretch away into the clouds and the azure blue sky!
Perfect harmony in this picture, is like the whole nature embraced the caravan to help it find its path
The feeling is quite ethereal.. the puffy clouds in the deep blue sky and the yaks below!
Beautiful sky and clouds and the plateau below! Lovely
The terrain in this Trans Himalayan region is quite amazing. I have seen this is Ladakh and now North Sikkim is similar. Fine photograph.
Quite nice, I do love spacey photos of that kind. But looks kinda overdone. Too sharp, distracting. My eyes keep focusing on the top right cloud.
Wonderful location and photograph
