Morning in the Mountains : Uttarakhand (Pithoragarh, Kumaon)

Its no surprise that I love mountains, there is a yearning for those high altitude location when I am away from them, struggling with the day-to-day challenges for survival in urban jungles – living the boring city life. Every time of day has its own charm in the mountains, the scenery changes with the changing time, as the breathtaking mornings become pleasant noon and noon turns into serendipitous evenings and evenings turn into mysterious nights. My favorite time of the day at mountains is the mornings.

 

With every passing moment, the sun moves briskly upward in the sky, spreading its wings of lights across the landscape, the high peaks first and then moving towards the valleys. Eliminating the darkness from the every nook and corner. Its an experience in itself to be able to watch it all unfold in front of our eyes, and it happens so soon, it happens really fast.

 

These are some of the picture of Nanda Devi range of Himalyan mountains taken with the help of Nikon D3100 and Nokia Lumia 8 phone camera. These were taken in the last week of December 2012 in and around Pithoragarh district of Kumoan, Uttarakhand, India.
