Pangong Moods
—————————
Its never easy to visit a place every year and come back with distinctly different images. Have put in conscious effort to create different images of Ladakh. This time we stayed at a beautiful village Mann which is the farthest on Pangong Lake with easy access to the pristine lake. I shot many different shots of this lake this time. Here is first in the series. Hope you all like it.

New on 500px : Adventures Tale by Sebastian_Wahlhuetter by Sebastian_Wahlhuetter

When it comes to adventure, for me the key is to be able to adapted to the unexpected. Adventure often implies being on far and remote destinations however in my opinion it is more like a state of mind. Leave your comfort zone and you will find endless opportunities literally around your corner.

This image is already well known to many people. Here are some background infos if you haven’t read it yet:

“This dog just appeared out of nowhere and followed us for an entire week during our trekking trip in the Himalayan outback. He always used to sleep in front of our tent and guarded us in the nights. When I decided to get up at 4 a.m. to climb the next 5000 m peak for sunrise he accompanied me as well. On the top he was sitting for the entire 30 minutes on this place looking straight into the countryside. I’m normally quite reserved towards dogs, but this one became a real friend to me.
