Tso Kar … Ladakh.
Note to self: Look down and walk in marshy grounds. ESPECIALLY when the water is close to freezing!!

    Ha ha ha !!! I know what you mean! I’ve walked in places like this and my shoes took HOURS to dry (not to mention my socks and jeans!)
    Wonderful DOF, fantastic light and beautiful colours. Lovely!!

  • :-) Thanks so much Meike!
    Wouldn’t have minded as much except for a) the water was freezing, b) the wind was blowing down the snow covered peaks to the left of this frame, and c) I scared away a pair of black-necked cranes and their chick (yes, that is something to get annoyed about as they’re fairly difficult to find).

    Terrific capture! Great composition; while the mountains in background invite the viewer to go and explore, the grounds in foreground warn the walker, yes :) Love the varying colours of water/reflections.
    Adding Ladakh to my travel wishlist!
