SunsetOnWiskeyNala

While returning from Leh, got stuck at Pang due to a landslide. It was evening when the road opened. Couple of water crossings later I was soaking wet and freezing. Decided to stay at a tent just before the NakeLa ascent. This remote settlement of a few tents presented me with an amazing sunset.

Picture above is of a seasonal stream called Wiskey Nala. At the back are the temporary huts of BRO workers – unknown workers who keep remote Indian villages and cities connected to rest of the world.

Photo of a seasonal stream in the Suru valley of Zanskar region. I had stopped here for a brief moment of rest and to fill a water bottle. Took out the camera after noticing the wild flowers blooming next to the stream.
The camera was placed on a parapet next to the road to allow for the long exposure.
