Mountain mornings are a boundless joy. Waking up a 5am and getting out of the tent, I was overjoyed to see Nun and Kun peaks standing high above the world in picture-perfect weather. Sun was about to shine on the peaks in a few minutes and bathe the white peaks with a glow of light-pink-orange happiness. On the other hand, night-time dip in the temperatures had frozen a shallow stream next to our tents into a silvery white strip, while another continued to flow uninterrupted. The morning's breeze was mild, enabling us to brave the cold pre-dawn effortlessly. When the sun came up on the mountain, it was blissful to watch the transformation of peaks into glorious flag-bearers of this beautiful world.
Photographed in Suru-Zanskar Valley last week, where I was leading a photography tour ( see www.darter.in ) for Darter Photography
In the photographs is Mt.Kun, a 7,000m high peak in Suru Valley, along with Mt.Nun whose snow-covered peak is visible in the background.
