Himalayan High Road

I am still trying different things with the new Nik software suite and this shot I took in India last year seemed to suit the silver efex pro treatment I thought.  A group of us from Oz spent three weeks riding Royal Enfield Bullet motor bikes from Delhi up to Ley in the himalayas of India (around 2000 km there and back ). The landscapes up that way are mind blowing and the mountain roads are a bit scary  as this shot shows.

    Looks kinda neat this one . I’m not big on B&W but this isn’t to bad . I always want to see the colour version of a B&W to see what it looks like.

    I’m gunna have to get into the Silver Efex.

      Thanks Dave, I love this photo myself, it is just brings the whole trip back to me when I look at it. I am thinking about putting it in the York photo comp this year to try my luck.

        If the image resolution is good I enter it a major comp somewhere.

    Hey Peter,
    Im currently working out different effects of Nik S/Ware. I think B & W here is great. What a place to be traveling.
    Cheers Adrian

    Hey Pete. Great shots but I think will have to go with Mark on this one. Health and safety definitely overlooked this road! Do you get a parachute just in case?
