The Descent. As easy as it looks, it's far from your comfort zone and descent is the toughest part. You're low on energy, definitely not motivated enough to reach the base camp which is an indicator that trek is over and you have to start your journey towards civilisation. On top of it, if you were unable to summit, it's even harder to return & go back to your normal life. . . .

Juley...⠀ Juley,⠀ Maa can I take your picture?⠀ Why do you want picture of this old village woman ?⠀ Now how do you answer that? ⠀ I have tried to answer this question I am asked often with various clever answers, but let me tell you I have failed every single time.And mostly I end up fumbling something that just does not makes sense.⠀ But as luck will have it, my requests have been accepted more times than I have been denied permission. I feel guilty at times to intrude in there life, stop them and ask for clicking. But I have found that in the first 10 second of contact you know if the person will say yes or not for being photographed. ⠀ In all honesty I love clicking old women as they remind me of my granny. Whom I lovingly clicked when I bought my first camera ( from my own money) when I was in college.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #Ladakh⠀ #people⠀#portraits⠀#portraitMode⠀#Portrait_page⠀#Portrait_mood⠀ #indianshutterbugs⠀#everydayindia⠀#artofvisuals⠀#moodygrams⠀ #thegranddragonladakh⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #desiHumans⠀#desi_diaries⠀#cntgiveitashot⠀ #streetphotography⠀ #streetsofindia⠀ #_soi⠀ #desiHumans⠀ #desiFaces ⠀ ⠀ #indiaphotography⠀ #Mypixeldiary #IamNikon⠀⠀ #travelphotography⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ #capturetomorrow⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ #TheGrandDragonLadakh⠀⠀ PS: I visited Ladakh once again, this time thanks to the good folks at @granddragonladakh⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Check, like follow @desiTraveler & post using #desiTraveler, to be featured on the " UsLee", & original desi Traveler 😛BTW hamaree koi branch nahi hai.

Had walked for over 5 hours in rains, in drenched shoes all over the Vatican and Colosseum, in extremely wet shoes and never drying trench coat, and with frizzy hair which ensured not a single picture turned out good...but still look at that radiant 😃...ready to see all the sites Palatine Hill and Rome had to offer....even though I thought I couldn’t walk a minute more!

Channeling the inner South Indian and getting ready for some lungi dance! 😜😄 The idea of India that has always fascinated me is the variety in culture, dress, food, region, religion and language. सिर्फ हम ही हम हैं तो क्या हम हैं, सिर्फ तुम ही तुम हो तो क्या तुम हो। Soaking in the diversity of India!

Many of us don't realise how vast the landscape in Ladakh is. 6-8 hours of roadtrips are common from one place to another. I have always wanted to click an image that portrayed the vastness of Ladakhi Landscape. Finally after waiting for many years I got lucky with this image. The image is actually shot in landscape format , but I am posting it here as square. .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #Ladakh⠀ #roadtrip⠀ #flags⠀ #prayerflags⠀ #Lehdiaries⠀⠀#NGTIndia⠀⠀#depthoffield⠀#desi_diaries⠀#Gompas ⠀⠀ ⠀ #cntgiveitashot⠀⠀#pictureoftheday⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #Hipaae⠀#Ladakhtrip⠀⠀#cntgiveitashot⠀⠀ #NGTIndia⠀⠀ #bbctravel⠀⠀ #onassignment⠀#incredibleindia⠀⠀#dslr_official⠀⠀#Mypixeldiary #IamNikon⠀⠀ #travelphotography⠀#capturetomorrow⠀#TheGrandDragonLadakh⠀⠀ PS: I visited Ladakh once again, this time thanks to the good folks at @granddragonladakh⠀⠀ ⠀ Check, like follow @desiTraveler & post using #desiTraveler, to be featured on the " UsLee", & original desi Traveler 😛 BTW hamaree koi branch nahi hai.

So as promised here is another picture of Thiksey Monastery. Actually if you swipe you will realise these are actually two pictures of the same monastery taken at exactly same spot but using different points in the scene for focus. You can simply shift the foucs point and make a differnt aspect of the scene as the focal point of the image. Like in the first one we have the stone with inscription as the focal point withe monastery as blur and in the second scene the monastery is in foucs while the stone is blurred. This concept is also called playing with Depth of field.  A very useful concept to know when you want to do landscape photography, also u can use this concept to have a tack sharp image by using a tripod and taking multipe images and then stacking them together. But that is another discussion. So a question > What should I post next from Ladakh ? People ? Landscapes or something else? Do tell me and I will share accordingly. #Lehdiaries⠀ #NGTIndia⠀ #depthoffield #aperture #desi_diaries⠀ #Gompas ⠀ #cntgiveitashot⠀ #ladakh #pictureoftheday⠀ #ecofriendlyLadakh⠀ #Hipaae #Ladakhtrip⠀ #lehladakh⠀ #cntgiveitashot⠀⠀ #NGTIndia⠀⠀ #bbctravel⠀⠀ #onassignment #incredibleindia⠀ #visitKashmir ⠀⠀ #dslr_official⠀ #Mypixeldiary #IamNikon⠀⠀ #travelphotography #capturetomorrow #TheGrandDragonLadakh⠀⠀ PS: I visited Ladakh once again, this time thanks to the good folks at @granddragonladakh⠀ Check, like follow @desiTraveler & post using #desiTraveler, to be featured on the " UsLee", & original desi Traveler :P BTW hamaree koi branch nahi hai.

Thiksey Monastery stands tall at the banks of Indus, the river that gives name to our country India. An impressive 12 storied structure, Thiksey is said to be resembling the Patola Palace in Lhasa Tibet. Well I have been outside Thiksey a few times but could never go really inside the monastery, even this time as I had just started climbing it started to rain and we had to abandon our climb and get back. Rather than getting dissaapointed I simply think I will be visiting the Thiksey monastery once again soon, and hopefully will get a chance to see it from inside. BTW today the second picture that will come in the evening will also be of Thiksey but from a different angle and we will aslo have a small photography lesson also in it. . . . . . .⠀ .⠀ ..⠀ .⠀ .⠀ ⠀ #Lehdiaries⠀ #NGTIndia⠀ #desi_diaries⠀ #Gompas#cntgiveitashot⠀ #ladakh #pictureoftheday⠀ #magicalLadakh⠀ #ecofriendlyLadakh⠀ #Hipaae #Ladakhtrip⠀ #lehladakh⠀ #cntgiveitashot⠀⠀ #NGTIndia⠀⠀ #bbctravel⠀⠀ #onassignment #incredibleindia⠀ #visitKashmir ⠀⠀ #dslr_official⠀ #Mypixeldiary #IamNikon⠀⠀ #travelphotography #capturetomorrow #snowcappedmountains #TheGrandDragonLadakh⠀⠀ PS: I visited Ladakh once again, this time thanks to the good folks at @granddragonladakh⠀ Check, like follow @desiTraveler & post using #desiTraveler, to be featured on the " UsLee", & original desi Traveler :P BTW hamaree koi branch nahi hai....

Once upon a time Turtuk was part of the Central Asian Baltistan empire, then in 1971 there was a war between India & Pakistan, while most of us are aware of forming of Bangladesh few know that Turtuk became part of India during same war. Turtuk is so remote that there is not even a dhaba on the way. Any guesses who serves food / drinks to the tired travelers on the way to Turtuk ? ⠀ In Turtuk you can clearly notice central asian features on the residents faces. The kids are shy & reluctant to get clicked, but in this case the mom of these kids was only too happy to let us click them, but only after she has hidden behind the door to avoid our camera :) Do you want more of Turtuk stories ? Well I have got many, watch this space.⠀ ,⠀ ,⠀ ,⠀ ,⠀ ,⠀ ,⠀ #portrait⠀ #portraitphotography⠀ #summerscapesLadakh⠀⠀ #cntgiveitashot⠀⠀ #NGTIndia⠀⠀ #bbctravel⠀⠀ #snowcappedpeaks #onassignment ⠀ ⠀ #incredibleindia⠀ #visitKashmir ⠀⠀ #dslr_official⠀ #Mypixeldiary⠀ #portraitmood #portraitpage ⠀⠀ #Ladakhihospitality⠀⠀ #IamNikon⠀ #magicalLadakh⠀⠀ #ecofriendlyLadakh⠀⠀ #travelphotography #capturetomorrow #snowcappedmountains #mountains ⠀⠀ #TheGrandDragonLadakh⠀⠀ BTW I visited Ladakh once again, this time thanks to the good folks at @granddragonladakh⠀ ⠀⠀ PS: Check, like follow @desiTraveler & post using #desiTraveler, to be featured on the " UsLee", & original desi Traveler :P BTW hamaree koi branch nahi hai....

Old saying > Don't be a Gama, in the land of Lama.⠀ Just as an FYI: Gama jee was a famous pehelwan. But in the rarified air of Ladakh you need to take each step carefully specially during the first 48 hours when your body acclimatise to the low oxygen atmosphere. We just went to Shanti Stupa in evening on our first day in Leh. That is where I met this kind Lama jee and clicked him with the Shanti Stupa.⠀ This is the first image of the day from #Leh the biggest city in #Ladakh. No Leh and Ladakh are not the same. Leh is the city, Ladakh is the region in the state of Jammu and Kashmir. Some of the other prominent places in Ladakh region are Diskit, Hunder, Siachin Glacier, Turtuk... this last one is very interesting as it became part of India only in 1971 before that it was a part of Pakistan. Ok the second image of the day will be from there only jee, stay tuned.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ ⠀ #monk⠀ #Azureskies⠀⠀ #summerscapesLadakh⠀⠀ #cntgiveitashot⠀⠀ #NGTIndia⠀⠀ #bbctravel⠀⠀ #snowcappedpeaks #surreallandscapes #onassig⠀ #shantistupa⠀ #Lama⠀ #buddhism⠀ #summerbeauty⠀⠀ #incredibleindia⠀ #visitKashmir ⠀⠀ #landscapephotography⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ #Ladakhihospitality⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ #magicalLadakh⠀⠀ #dinKayDo⠀⠀ #ecofriendlyLadakh⠀⠀ #travelphotography #capturetomorrow #landscapes #snowcappedmountains #mountains ⠀⠀ #TheGrandDragonLadakh⠀⠀ BTW I visited Ladakh once again, this time thanks to the good folks at @granddragonladakh⠀ ⠀⠀ PS: Check, like follow @desiTraveler & post using #desiTraveler, to be featured on the " UsLee", & original desi Traveler :P BTW hamaree koi branch nahi hai....
