These are the actual, unaltered color version of those two Himalayan photos I posted yesterday. When a blogger friend expressed interest in seeing them in their color forms I felt kinda guilty for sticking to my monochromatic obsession and decided to post their original copies. I believe adding a slight reddish hue would add up to their beauty, but all I wanted was to show you these scenes as my eyes had witnessed them. Yes, my poor compact camera didn't have a HDR (High Dynamic Range) mode, so, some portions of these photographs are darker in an attempt to capture Himalayan shades than what they were in real... but, you know, there's an unexplainable pleasure in posting digitally non-manipulated photos. There has been too many "I"s up till now in this tiny paragraph which needs to be sanctified with a couple of Himalayan quick facts. Would you believe if I say that mighty Himalayan range moves approximately 20 millimeters every year? Scientific studies inferred with this data so better buy it. Have you ever been to Nepal? You better be. Three fourth of Nepal contains parts of Himalaya and boasts of housing nine of the fifteen highest peaks in the world! Travel Nepal and enjoy shades of Himalaya... trust me I haven't taken a cent from Nepal tourism to promote this.
