Hi Sarvesh.

I had already read the note on the the post nr 5123061, which is quite alike the one you point me.

I am amazed and also confused as, for what I can seee on the map, the closest point to Annapurna on the Indian border is at least 100 Km away, and I see no traces of haze. In fact one of the most striking features of both photos it is the sharpness. On the 433516, one can almost see the grass in detail. I would never think that such clarity would be possible from more than 100 Km away.

Another big surprise to me is the fact that you got this splendid clear weather in monsoon season, or very close to it. I allways heard that the visibility during Summer was rather bad in that part of the World; a friend of mine was in Nepal in early August one of these years and he practically didn't see any snowed peak(!).

I wished the info I have been receiveing on the weather in late July and August is wrong, at least partially, as I would like very much to take my family to the Himalayas, so they can experience the unique pleasure of being in such dazzling places and Summer holidays is the time when it's easier to do longer trips. And my son keeps asking us when are we going to India, as he is a big fan of Indian food and is fascinated with mountains and palaces. The idea of a combined trip to Uttaranchal or Himachal and Rajasthan is growing more and more irrestible as time passes.

CONGRATULATIONS!

Best regards, Jose.

These are Leica Lenses 35-420mm. Company fitted on all Panasonic FZ series.
I might have used Marumi UV filter but I am not sure.

Thank you for satisfying my curiousity. I guess that you used the 420 mm focal distance. I wouldn't expect such sharpness...
Regards.

As far as I remember, the shot was taken right after early morning rain. Gunji place from where I shot it, Annapurna looks at a trekkable distance and that illusion is due to its massive size.
