Photographer's Note

It was a chilly Christmas morning, and the little known hamlet of Chaukori, in Uttarakhand was still sleepy. Fearing that I would miss the sunrise, I was long awake, and ultimately decided to venture out. More than the cold, what made me shiver was the crimson tint of the far off horizon. The chilly wind tried its best to prevent me from being all the more with the raw nature around. The only living species awake was a dog, whose bark seemed like the scream of a demon amaidst paradise. I walked upto a small hillock which would offer me the best possible view of the Kumaon Himalayas.....three...two...one...and it was there. The sun kissed the top of Nanda Devi, and a stream of gold cascaded on both its ridges, reaching upto Pnawali Dwar on its left and Nanda Devi East to its left. A heavenly sight unfolded, and I stood there spellbound, awestruck and speechless.......
The peaks seen here are the pointed peak Panwali Dwar (6663 metres) on the left of the screen , the dome shaped Nanda Devi (7816 metres) in the middle, and Nanda Devi East (7434 metres) on the right.
