THE MOUNTAINS TOUCHING THE SKY:
The picture is beautifully shot and the main frame in the picture is the sky. One side of the sky is dark the other side is blue and the centre of the sky is yellow. The yellow part of the sky shows that the earth is just awake and shines like a glitter of gold. In this part of the sky the sun was hide by the clouds so it looks like the sun is asking the cloud if it could come out for a while. The dark part of the sky is also covered by the clouds carrying the water droplets and asking if it could flow out as rain. The blue side of the sky is like the dawn of the earth,that is there is no sun and it is about to dark, the beginning of the night.The lake reflects the yellow part of the sky. It has been a mirror to the sky. Looking its own face as we do when we see lake pond or any still water.The mountains are covered with snow here and there, and it looks like a water fall from the mountain. The mountains are shot in such a way that it touches the sky. If we go to the tip of the mountain we could also touch the sky. The left end of the lake is full of trees which also gives a good scene to our eyes with reddish and greenish flavour adding to the picture.
