Nice plant indeed. I can feel the cold atmosphere in the area. Two Donald ducks of different colours stand tall amongst the green flora of Himalayan summer which is otherwise covered with snow I suppose.
I had photographed similar plant from the area.
Yes it was chilling and windy.
On this point while standing you can see three different ranges. On the front is extension of greater himalaya range. On right is the peer panjaal range and on left the trans himlaya….
It was a great experience. I almost walked 15 kms that day with umbrella and camera in rain. Umbrella was just to save my camera.
