Char Chinar:
Char Chinar is an island in the famous Dal Lake. It is called as Char-Chinar (Four Chinars) because of the presence of four beautiful Chinar trees in this region. Chinar trees characteristically grow in Eastern Himalayas. They have been an important part of Kashmiri tradition, in that, a Chinar tree is found in almost every village in Kashmir. These trees have survived for ages, because Chinar is basically a long-living tree. It spreads wide across a region of cool climate with sufficient water. The tree has several properties – leaves and bark are used as medicine, the wood, known as lace wood has been used for delicate furniture and the twigs and roots are used for making dyes.

    Just wonderful..
    I wonder though….
    Neville has mentioned that you have used a “selected coloring” here…but I am thinking, that you have not..
    Nature is color selective mostly, specially when there is mist and Nature is offering a “gathering” of shades and tones.
    I love this spot of your Life, for it is magic and expremely spacious and meditative.
    It is a really great photography.

  • Thanx Rosa!!!! It’s not selective color. It’s As It Is. During this extreme cold weather there was no leaf on any tree, So, the trees look black.
