Sunrise is dramatically different at an Himalayan Altitude in the cold high altitude desert of Ladakh and close to Sea Level amongst the Aravalli Mountain Range in the desert state of  Rajasthan.

The Snow Clad Himalyan Peaks gradually turn from shades of Crimson to Gold matching the Ascent of the Sun in the startling Blue skies of Leh, Ladakh.

Blushing Peaks  touched by the Rising Sun

The Rising Sun ( do see a blog titled Golden Disc) behind a cover of Acacia trees that adorn the Aravalli Mountains at Lakshman Sagar, Near Ajmer, Rajasthan.

The Skies and the Lakes turn Crimson in this Oasis in the Pali District of Rajasthan.

Back to sub zero temperatures and an early Morning at Leh, Ladakh. Watch the peaks turn to Gold in a Domino fashion as the Sun Rises waking up the Gigantic Himalayas from Deep Slumber.

Do observe the leafless Pencil Poplars and Willows are still in the grip of Night.

The Himalayas awaken to the Call of the Sun

This is the Spellbinding  Charm of Nature. Same Sun , Same Planet and yet what a difference , though it is but another Morning.
