A yak grazing in Yumthang valley. Located in the north Sikkim at an elevation of 3,575 metres, this valley is covered with rhododendron shrubs and trees of various species.
The valley is well known for its hot springs, which are slightly saline in taste and are believed to have high therapeutic values. The water of the spring emits sulphurated hydrogen gas and its temperature is 106 degree. The water of the spring with such composition is believed to be beneficial for skin diseases.

A spectacular alpine backdrop to the yak, with good sharpness & shadow detail despite the harsh back lighting. I like how the diagonal lines of the hill slopes either side, converge on the yak. Tfs!

Excellent landscape image. The yak in FG and the snow covered mountains in BG are adding great bonus. Perfect DOF & POV. Well done!!

il panorama è bellissimo e ottima l'idea di includere nel FG lo yak per dare profondità prospettica all'immagine.
L'inserimento dello Yak secondo le regole canoniche dell'inquadratura (regola dei 2/3) doveva però essere un po' decentrata.
Ti ho fatto pertanto un WS dove ho anche dato un po' di mordente alla immagine.
Spero che ti piaccia.

beautiful the dark shapes of the animals against the clear landscape around. it is a pity the weather with a so white sky.

this is a lovely landscape, the mountains surrounding the clearing are very impressive. I like the depth, the dark colours, the shadows of the clouds. The sense of isolation and tranquility is amazing. Well done and thank you!
All the best, have a great weekend,

A calm and peaceful scenery with so many interesting layers and on the focus there is a grazing yak. I like the depth sense you achieved here, the eye focuses on the grazing yak and then moves through the layers of surrounding hills and terminates in the majestic snowy mountain.The colors, sharpness and clarity are all great. TFS and best wishes,

a great image! The yak is perfectly placed in the picture. By the dark color, it also provides a nice contrast to the wild mountain landscape.
Very nice, Miguel!
