New on 500px : Wind, Sun and Stone by PedroQuintela1 by PedroQuintela1

Monsanto was built under and over the granite. Due to the interest motivated by one of my last images, I decided to revisit the antique village and try to capture a little more of its spirit. After a couple of hours I found this place that, at least to me, symbolizes the roughness of living among the boulders since many, many centuries.
With this God´s view I had no other chance but make a panorama shot, blending three images, because only one couldn’t show all the beauty. This was trickier than I first thought, because of the 17 mm distortion and the lack of space. Also used a 0,9 ND grad and placed the tripod to wait for the (windy) sunset, in particulary the moment of the sun flair, to add a little more magic.
I hope you all like it and if you want I´ll upload some more. Have a great day and thanks so much for the support and comments.

New on 500px : Long and Enchanted Lake by Angshu by Angshu

Just about 160 km from Leh is a beautiful lake named the Pangong Tso or Lake in Ladakh. Situated at a height of about 13,900 ft, the name Pangong is a derivative of the Tibetan word Banggong Co meaning “long, narrow, enchanted lake”. One third of the lake is in India while the remaining two thirds lies in Tibet, which is controlled by China. Majority of the streams which fill the lake are located on the Tibetan side. Pangong Tso is about five hours drive from Leh in Ladakh region of Jammu & Kashmir. The route passes through beautiful Ladakh countryside, over Chang La, the third highest motorable mountain pass (5289 m) in the world.
