During my visit to Darjeeling, a hill station in the state of West Bengal, India, I was quick enough to turn around and click this frame before the moment was lost. This was clicked at the Ghoom Railway Station. One of the oldest and highest railway stations in Asia.

Photograph Location: Ghoom Railway Station, Darjeeling, West Bengal, India
Photographer: Dipanjan Mitra (Calcutta, India) Registered
Being a software professional since 1999, Dipanjan Mitra always had an intense desire to travel across the Indian terrains. It was long inhibited till 2006 when his journey began with a small digital camera in the state of Karnataka. The world of photography really got him going when he moved on to a relatively higher end digital camera in the form of Canon S5 IS which he had used for around 2 years, trying to learn the magic of shutter and aperture until the real journey began with a Rebel T1i in May 2010. Fascinated by the magic of being behind the lens keeps amazing him every day. He wishes this journey never ends.
