12th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Awed in Pangong

At the Pangong Tso (lake) which separates India and China in Ladakh, we went gaga, seeing the Himalayan Range and the colour-changing lake. It was cold wind which greeted us as we got out of the car. It grew colder as we got down to the bank. I was focusing on the mountains when my wife accidentally appeared in the viewfinder. When she picked up a pebble and threw it into the water, I could comprehend her sense of freedom up close. I looked up to the firmament. This is heaven!
