Himalayan Souvenir~

clouds disperse at dawn

the sun gleams off its features

gilds the peaks beyond

One experiences a special emotion in these remote mountains. Recently, I went on a trip to Kausani, in Uttrakhand, India with my family and saw some spectacular display of ‘Sunrise’ on the eastern horizon.

A misty dawn painted the glacier-fed mountains with gold and purple pigments..one moment the ridges had hardly any color-then, the sun emerged, bringing a subtle alchemy of light..
