Postcards from Shimla - I

A week long sojourn in Shimla with my li'l brother...........an orgy of sight-seeing......it's been a splendid vacation and the best part is it's not over yet....... These glorious sunsets were captured on a rare, singular day that we had sunlight........... My heart's in mountains..........I wish to have a home one day nestled among hills, hid behind conifers, pine scent in the air, Himalayas in the backdrop.................. :)

I loved the first and last pics, you could crop that wire on the top-left-hand corner in the second pic & it wld look much better.

Surise & Sunsets are always unique, everytime u click u get a new contrast with different set of colors.
