Photograph of the week: The foothills of India’s Himalayas

The stunning scenery at the foothills of India’s Himalayas is a photographer’s dream, though the journey to get there, only possible by road, is long and gruelling. This shot looking over the apple orchards at Seetalvan, Himachal Pradesh, takes full advantage of the magnificent light and somehow made it all worth it.

  1. What are the white nets seen in the pic?
    They seem to be quite big in number…
    By the way, yes, the photographer deserves lots of credit for such an image because it it really difficult to reach there….

  2. I love the lighting of this picture. It perfectly captured the mood that I imagine this place gives to visitors. Places like this really calms me especially in today’s turbulent times. I have been searching for uplifting, calming images and listening to happy music just to get me out of the rut. I am wishing more that we can all travel safely again and looking at pictures like this will become supplements to a travel itinerary rather than an “I wish” item on our list.
