Himalayan foothills

Just got back from the foothills of the Himalayas walking from village to village. It was a fascinating and humbling experience staying in simple village houses often without electricity or hot water. The walking was challenging  but the  stunning scenery and plants  and  the vibrant and friendly  villagers  tending their land made it a memorable experience.   I have just looked through all my photos and have plenty of predictable ones of the rhododendron flowers with snow capped mountains behind but I rather like  my close up shot of some of the tiny ferns and their skeletons that clung to the mossy branches of the rhododendron trees. I also loved the patterns of colourful saris  used to make fences around the  many small vegetable plots within the terraced  hillside. Now it’s back to  work- I have a really busy  month ahead!
