Regular readers have seen many images from Chandratal on this blog in the past. Here is another one from a recent trip.
Chandratal Lake is a place I have been going to for a few years now. It’s a beautiful lake located in Lahaul & Spiti Region in the Himalayas. I made my fifth visit a few weeks ago.
The first few images at this place came easy. When the sun is shining and the air is still, the lake reflects everything within the view. It assumes the blue of the sky, and the reflection is so perfect that you can’t see the lake’s waters in a photograph.
Challenges, however, begin when you are done with easy-to-make images. It helps when the weather gods show different moods.
This time when I was there, it was windy and the lake surface was restless. There was a thin layer of cloud through which the sun was barely visible. Here is one of the resulting image.
I was exploring more on the photography opportunities in the area, and it appears that the place holds a promise. Perhaps the next time around, I will look at spending more time at the lake and the places around it.
