“I felt like the desert was putting up a little performance for me, as it appeared to be dancing in the rays of the sun.”
When I arrived, it was a warm afternoon in the Hunder Sand dunes, at the Nubra Valley in Ladakh. It was also my first trip to the place, and I was thrilled by the stunning landscape before me. I noticed how the rays of the setting sun were scattered on the undulating contours of the dunes, thus adding a surreal dimension to the scene. While being filled with awe, I reminded myself to carefully consider the composition and then, made this photograph.

Look Before You Walk
When photographing wildflowers, be mindful of your steps. There are chances that you might be stepping on rare or endangered species of plants. Also, never pluck or uproot wildflowers, or worse, trample them.
