Sunset at Binsar, Uttarakhand


This one from one of our earliest vacations in the Kumaon region. It was a cold summer (yes, cold summer) evening in Binsar. We walked about 2 km's from the KMVN guest house where we were staying, lost our way a couple of times and still made it in time to watch the sun playing pee-ka-boo with the clouds before calling it a day.
The haze formed a thin veil over the sun, smoothening out the rays of the setting sun and covering the sky in concentric circles, each a different shade of orange.

Binsar is a forest area about 25 km from Almora town in the Kumaon region of Uttarakhand.

This one for Skywatch Friday this week! Have a good weekend :)

Sometimes getting lost during a hike is the best way to explore. As long as you find your way back afterwards. Beautiful colors in that sunset.

A lovely photo of the sky. It is always amazing to me how quickly the sky can change when we keep our eyes focussed on it.

Thanks Emilio. Agree, getting lost sometimes gives you the best experiences.

Thanks Joyful. Yeah, its almost like the sky is emphasizing that it is as alive as any of us!
