15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Glittering Beauty

'Ladakh', the name is very close to most of the nature and landscape photographers' heart. I have heard before going there that Ladakh has all: miles of glaciers, lush greenery, barren mountains, people, wildlife can not stop listing. But i did not except what mother nature had created for me there; a barren ice glacier circles round miles of a green field. How is this possible? I don't have the answer. For me it was one of the best moments of my life to witness such a beautiful landscape. If you cross the green field and reach the glacier there is no life. And on the contrary if u cross the glacier to reach the greenery you will understand what is life. What a contrast the mother nature has showcased for us!
