15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Starry night at Pangong Lake, Ladakh

Stars over the beautiful Pangong lake in Ladakh, India. I was out, shooting the sky, around the Pangong Lake at 3 in the morning. It was so cold that the lake had frozen slightly at parts. The strong winds shook the tripod, every time I tried to take a long exposure shot. Fortunately, the strong winds halted for a few minutes. I quickly set up the camera on tripod and took a few shots. The result was beautiful.
