Sloping Hills of Koti, on our way to Chail, Himachal Pradesh

On our way to Chail, Himachal Pradesh.

This picture is for Thursday Challenge: Peaceful (Landscape). Each time I try to take a good landscape shot I am conscious of this quote:

“Landscape photography is the supreme test of the photographer – and often the supreme disappointment.” by Ansel Adam (American Photographer, 1902-1984)

This picture was taken on our way to Chail, Himachal Pradesh from Kufri at Koti. The valley looked calm and peaceful, the floating clouds added magic. The picture takes me back to that moment.
