My external hard disk crashed some months back, and this image was one of those which could not be recovered ?. Hence there is no EXIF for the image.

Have you woken up pretty early on a chilly day and wondered if you could actually have a cold Ice-cream? Well that is the feeling I had this cold September morning at Tungnath. I woke up for shooting some landscapes and birds, and the first thing I saw (after seeing Chaukhamba) was Neelkanth. I immediately had the urge to have an ice-cream. Well, if you are wondering why, look at the Image closely. Doesn’t it looks like a freshly prepared Ice-cream cone with the clouds, acting as Chocolate toppings???

When I am capturing an image, my only intent is to share how I feel in that instant. I am always thinking of ways to capture that which I feel in the moment, in the best way I personally could. So here, since I was thinking about an Ice-cream, I wondered how I could convey the feeling.

Neelkanth is quite far away from Tungnath, so it would be impossible to entice this emotion using a wide angle lens. So I put on my Canon 400mm, which by the way is a beast of a workhorse and has never failed me. The frame fits perfectly in this focal length and after adding some warmth and contrast to the Image, I today too want to eat an Ice-cream. How about you?
