You may be an amateur, but your work is far superior than a pro. You are brilliant Sid! I am not sure whether I had seen better capture of Himalyan peaks in different moods & shades than yours. Hats off, Sid!

Day 7 : 31st October 2012

Exploring Munsiyari & enjoying the beauty of Himalayas

Get up early in the morning to capture the beauty of sunrise over the Panchchuli Peak but a disappointing for me as the sun came in such a direction that the effect of sunrise does not have any effect on Panchchuli Peak but I got a beautiful sunrise over the

Rajrambha Peak.

You are right, I did not trek upto Khalia Top, but trek for 1 hour up ( as I was alone & my wife & daughter was with the driver near that temple ) from where I got this view.
