I was browsing through the archives of my images when I saw some old pictures taken at the ski slopes of Garhwal many years ago. Looking through the pictures of the vast, bright expanse of snow that had once hurt my eyes, I felt a wish to highlight the purity and brightness of these slopes. Here is a second look on the images from the ski slopes of Auli.
