A Himalayan Sky Watch



One of the things that makes the place where we live special is that it is just below the Himalayas. We cant go very far North without climbing them. This picture was taken near a little stream that flows into the Teesta River. It is as if the monsoon doesn't want to leave us - we had a rainy morning and it was a cloudy, breezy afternoon when this picture was taken.



This picture was taken the same afternoon, and it shows the Eastern skies. It is one of my favourite vistas - of the Teesta River as it leaves the mountains and flows into the plains. Below, a close up of the same view.
