Hues of the Himalayas

Category: Outdoor Scenes


Photo and caption by Claudine Swiatek

Taken in the Stok Range of the Himalayan mountains in India on an eight day trek, the vast bleakness of the views contains a certain raw and potent beauty that takes your breath away. Every second of the hike at over 5000 metres is worth it to sit and enjoy such majestic views.

Location: Markha Valley, Ladakh Region, India
