New on 500px : Blue Terraces by Angshu by Angshu

Pamukkale is one of Turkey’s top attractions and a precious in the world with its cotton-look terraces. The underground water once gave life to the ancient city of Hierapolis now helps Pamukkale be one of the most important thermal centers of Turkey.

Shaped by the hand of nature and extant since the ancient times, Pamukkale is one of the world’s most outstanding legacies.

Located in the province of Denizli this natural wonder is comprised of terraces and travertine formed by hot springs and streams depositing carbonate minerals. Pamukkale has gained eminence for its waters believed to have curative powers and been used as a thermal bath since centuries. Noted for its extraordinary characteristics, the ancient site has been inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1988.

This picture was taken in the North end of Pamukkale entering from Hierapolis side. Nobody is allowed to get down to the travertine pools, but these people had a permit to film for a local TV station

New on 500px : Barley Fields in front of Chemrey by Angshu by Angshu

Clinging like a swallow’s nest to the sides of a shay conical hill, the magnificent Gompa of Chemrey sees very few visitors because of its location – tucked up the side valley that runs from below Hemis, to the Chang-la pass into Pangong. If one isn’t having one’s own vehicle, then be prepared to do some walking to get there. It takes around fifty minutes to follow the dirt track down to the river and up to the monastery after the Leh -Thak Thok bus drops one off beside the main road.

This is the view of the Chemrey Conpa as seen from the freshly sowed barley fields.

Chemrey Monastery is a 1664 Buddhist monastery, approximately 40 kilometres (25 mi) east of Leh, Ladakh, northern India. This monastery of the Drugpa (Red Hat) sect or monastic order in located in eastern Ladakh. It dates back to the 17th century. Today, the Ladakh Chemrey Gompa houses around 20 monks of the diminishing Drugpa community, along with their young novices.

Samsara is a 2001 independent Indian/Italian/French/German film which tells the story of a Buddhist monk’s quest to find Enlightenment was shot near Chemrey.

I woke up at 2AM to shoot the milky way and i saw a lot of frog around a small river. When the sunrise was there, the fog was completely crazy with these yellow colors.
The only regret is not to have bracket during this session to have more dynamic range.

New on 500px : A different sunrise. by Retheesh_Nair by Retheesh_Nair

Visiting my hometown after 3 years, I drove to one of the nearby beaches expecting to see fishermen returning with boatloads of fresh fish. That was not to be.

Fishing has been taken over by big groups with huge motorized boats, and these guys dont stand a chance to earn their livelihood.Many are trying to find alternate means of livelihood, and a few brave ones like you see here, are making a living by selling the nearby backwater sand ; being aware its illegal to do so.
There were concerns in their eyes as I clicked this, and requests not to harm them. Not revealing the location for their safety.
