  1. The picture on top is divine. Are the two chaps there on the rock your friends? Where did you shoot from? Are there more than one peak?

  2. prashanth, your camera has better vision than human eyes! it has captured what an ordinary eye would not!

    and the rocks truly rock!

    happy photography in 2008! may you trek more and give us more photos that speak more than words!
