I was catching my breath after climbing a steep and scary ridge at this point with my camera turned off. As soon as our guide came up the ridge and stood there looking back at the rest of the crew was when I hastily turned on the camera and shot a few images. Later, I noticed how I subconsciously took this picture as soon as there was a human element in the frame. Perhaps it was the "Zombie Artist" inside my mind? looking out for moments like these? If such is the case then I'm glad there is one. ;-) . ©@nitishhthakur . . . . . . . . . #Swaragrohini #garhwal #himalayas #uttarakhand #uttaranchal #euttaranchal #hippieinhills #tripotocommunity #indiapictures #travelrealindia #indiaview #cntgiveitashot #Iamatraveler #bbctravel #quechua #liveoutdoors #roamtheplanet #thegreatoutdoors #roam247 #bestofroam #adobe_Getaway #Yourshotphotographer #adoberisingstars #Amazonshutterbug #natureiswaiting

Shepherds leading their herd towards #Rupin Pass. A few months ago, one of the images I shot of these guys was shortlisted to Natgeo travel photographer of the year awards. . It didn't win the final rounds but these pictures remain among some of my finest ones. . I love how everything falls into the place here. The hikers in the background following their Guide and the shepherds in the foreground followed by their sheep. Zoom in to see the hikers! Let me know your thoughts about the picture. ©@nitishhthakur Shot on @canonindia_official 6D. . . . . . #himalayas #himachal #insta_himachal #himachalpictures #indiapictures #himachalpradesh #incredibleindia #hippieinhills #cntgiveitashot #tripotocommunity #history #indiaclicks #indiaview #mountains #himalayas #voyaged #natgeoindia #Yourshotphotographer #amazonshutterbug
Spot the human? . . The early morning light illuminates rugged textures of massive Swaragrohini peak while my friend blends with the silhouette below the shadows of Bali Pass. . . . . . @©nitishhthakur #himalayas #Garhwal #Uttarakhand #hippieinhills #euttaranchal #NGTIndia #cntgiveitashot #voyaged #mountains #tripotocommunity #thehimalayanlife #theconversationcreator #worldphotographyday #natgeoindia #adoberisingstars #amazonshutterbug
If you checked my last post, I talked about the historical rock arts found in caves above Chicham village and all across Spiti. The petroglyphs include ibex, two dancing(or praying men?), A lot of swastika signs, a man on horse hunting an ibex, crops, sun and a crescent moon. I have no idea about the last one? Perhaps you can figure it out. . I found a few documented papers on these caves on Google but none dates them on how old they actually are. . Many locals told us that these caves were used by the early settlers of Kibber and Chicham village as a hideaway from the attackers . Another thing, I found in the cave was random scribbling and carving inside the cave near these glyphs. If you do visit such caves sometime in future, keep the artist inside you on hold and respect these historical places! ©@nitishhthakur #Spiti #chichamcaves #himachalpictures #himachalpradesh #incredibleindia #hippieinhills #cntgiveitashot #tripotocommunity #indiapictures #history #indiaclicks #indiaview #mountains #himalayas #voyaged
Amphitheatre of natural history in Spiti valley. ©@nitishhthakur . These braided rivers bring millennia old sediments from the glaciers of Kunzum and Parang la. . The rising fluvial landformations near the banks are result of thousand years of relentless erosion cast by the rising winds. . I took this image from a cave called 'Simo Khadang'(Srin Mo khag dang) situated on a mountain top hidden in plain sight but visible from Kibber village. The cave contains rock arts of anthromorphs hunting ibexs, dancing human figures, shining sun and a crescent moon, khyung (a mythical bird), a figure of barley plant(?) and a LOT of swastika signs which tells us that this cave site might hold religious significance to the natives of that time. . It was a feeling of belongingness when I stood there watching those rock arts and this river. Someone thousands of years ago, stood at this same spot looking over the rivers and the mountains, after drawing these illustration of the environment around him that time. #whpperspective @instagram @roam . . . . . #theconversationcreator #worldphotographyday #spiti #himachal #himalayas #hippieinhills #incredibleindia #naturalhistory #indiapictures #indiaview #indiaclicks #landscapes #india_undiscovered #woi #tripotocommunity #cntgiveitashot #travelrealindia #travelphotos #roamtheplanet #liveoutdoors #ngtindia #lonelyplanetindia #mypixeldiary #himachalpictures #instahimachal #yourshotphotographer #roam247 #amazonshutterbug
The Thing. ©@nitishhthakur . Lately, I have been reading a lot of books about the idea of self and what or where the actual self, the I, happens to be inside your mind. From coming across the mental states which allow a conventionally blind person to successfully navigate(Blindsight), to the (anosognosic or hemineglect)people who think a certain of their body part doesn't belong to 'Them'. From people like James Thurber, who used to daydream hallucinations with open eyes(Charles bonnet syndrome) as his brain adjusted the new reality after damage to his visual pathways. It seems there is only so much control, you have over what you call the 'I'. . There are inbuilt 'Zombies' and 'phantoms' inside your mind doing their own workings, confabulation the reality based on the sensory inputs, hence your perception and decisions about life and what you see. The idea of YOU is just a neural activity inside your nerve cells and synapses obeying and feeding on the instructions of the zombies inside your brain.

Padma Dechen, a kind hearted and hard working women from Chicham village in Spiti. She told me these ornaments were a gift from her mother in her wedding 15 years ago; and it will be passed on to her elder daughter in her wedding. She works all day round mending her family farms, attending community meetings and doing daily chores. Her husband Takpa Tenzin is an equally kind person with vast knowledge about the wildlife and history of Spiti. We had the privilege to stay with this family twice in last two years. Looking forward to more meetings with them. . If you happen to visit Spiti and further to Chicham village, take a screenshot of this image and do show it to her. . ©@nitishhthakur . #portraitphotography #spiti #himalayanportraits #portraits_ig #portraits_mf #portraitsofficial #hippieinhills #instahimachal #himachal #insta_himachal #indiapictures #indianphotography #storiesofindia #indiaclicks #mypixeldiary #ngtindia #lonelyplanetindia #everydayindia #travelrealindia #cntgiveitashot #_coi #indiaview #incredibleindia #woi #india_undiscovered #voyaged #Lr_forgood #tripotocommunity #natgeoindia #Yourshotphotographer

First ride of life. I had never really been anywhere remote before this trip but in Jan, 2015, I made a promise to myself to ride all the way to Ladakh on bike and on16th June 2015, I stood right here riding a rented bike with people riding along with me whom I had never met before in life. I managed to visit Turtuk and other places in Ladakh. This trip planted a seed in me to travel to these otherworldly places as often as I can. I never knew the world was so beautiful. ©@nitishhthakur . @canonindia_official #theconversationcreator #worldphotographyday #hippieinhills #gataloops #ladakh #himalayas #ngtindia #instatravel #WHPjourney #cntgiveitashot #Indiapictures #lr_forgood
