This time I am before you with a photograph, “On the Way to Munsiyari”. I was on a trip to Munsiyari (Uttarakhand, India) during the winters of 2011. This is a scenic place of North India. We can enjoy the amazing sight of magnificent Panchchuli Peaks from here. This was an evening when I passed through a small village. I watched a lady with a small girl at one side of the road. They were with a few containers, most likely for bringing water. A heavy vehicle, a moment ago, had passed speedily from the place. As a result, the dust rose in atmosphere. The sun light passing through the dust and falling on a particular portion of the land created magic. Furthermore, the greenery around the place and the house in background added charm to the scene. I used a Nikon D-90 camera with 18-105 mm lens to capture this moment. The aperture was 5.6 and the shutter speed was 1/200 sec. ISO was set at 200.
