Kashmir and Ladakh in Northern India are far off the radar of most tourists. Some of the most beautiful areas are accessible only by harrowing mountain passes of 12-18,000 feet, and amenities are not readily available for modern travelers. The landscape of Ladakh has been described as  "Death Valley meets Grand Canyon" and Kashmir as "India's version of Switzerland". Monasteries abound and indeed, one feels she has taken a step back in time. Some villages are nearly medieval in development.

About
I have been immersed in photography since the age of twelve when my grandpa built a darkroom for me in our family basement. Digital photography enabled me to expand my portfolio from black and white to color, though I find myself returning to the simple beauty of black and white as the photography world becomes more supersaturated. Once only interested in landscapes, I've become more attracted to the human element as I travel to "chase the light".
