Hello Abmdsudi,
This is a stunning view. The two women, luckily dressed in red, are very well placed in the corner, walking into the picture. For those of us who live in modern cities, where everything regarded as essential ifor existence is available within a few metres, it is hard to grasp the realities of life in other parts of the world. Walking this 7-10 km shortcut several times a week has on the other hand possibly made people of this area stronger and healthier than "degenerated" Western city people.
I like the tight cropping that excludes the sky. Maybe it could have been even tighter, to exclude also the light upper right corner.
Kind regards,

Namaste Angshu
Nice to have you back and in good health!
Thks to your notes:
This shot was taken about 3 hours after leaving Kashgar,
but an hour earlier the road was covered with heavy snow bewteen Ghuz and Karasul but efficiently cleared by the Chinese workers even the famous Lake Karakul was almost totally frozen and the landscape was in black and white only.
The road condition all the way first class. Since this highway is highly sensitive we had to pass three Commie check points for normal formality. I have taken also a picture of a Commie millitary intallation tucked amongst the ranges also from a moving taxi on my return back to Kashgar, hope to post at later date.
Have a great weekend
Cheers and be happy!
