A photograph, from somewhere between Manali and Rohtang Pass.
The road from Manali to Rohtang is where I have seen easily one of the most dramatic landscapes in all of Himalayas. Dhauladhar Mountains climb quickly after leaving Manali, making one of the steepest climbs that one can witness.
I could spend months here photographing the landscapes. But the terrain comes with its challenges. The weather is unpredictable, often wet and foggy. Traffic jams bog the journey when the weather gets bad. Good photographs can be made only if one can remain patient, and willing to return day after day.
We were a group of a dozen when I was making this photograph. Others were right behind me, and arrived at this spot less than a minute after this image was made. But alas, the weather here is such that all that they got to see was a blanket of fog, mountains already hidden beneath them in such a short span of time!
