Theatre in the Sky

Vastness Ahead

Smaran Sahu, Mumbai
“The image was shot on the flight back to Srinagar from Leh. The clear skies helped the viewing distance to be at complete infinity. Just after take off, I saw this picturesque view of a small part of the Himalayan ranges with the horizon laden with thick white clouds. I wanted a frame that could depict how a manmade form was able to conquer these magnanimous grandeurs of nature, and chose to keep the wing in sight. ”
