[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
An early morning shot on what remained of the mist that was still lingering over the old town of Pushkar and some of white-washed temples around the lake, shaded by glimpse of Aravali range.

A sacred spot for Hindus that is believed to have been created by Lord Brahma himself when he dropped a lotus flower in this place. Devotees throng everyday in large numbers here to take a dip in the sacred lake.

It was a peaceful calm morning to remember but capturing it is another thing!

Hello Abmdsudi,
The early morning light and the haze the fog adds together create a beautiful and very peaceful mood around this town. The silhouettes of the mountains in the distance are the perfect background for the pastel colours of the buildings.

Bonjour, cher Abmdsudi,
J'aime la brume qui enveloppe la ville sur fond montagneux. Très belle mise en image.

Good Morning Abmdsudi,

This is like us waking up in Pushkar.
There is a lovely feeling, like opening your eyelids and everything is still a little misty!
There is no-one about, just the calm of the new day, slowly rising from the river.

I think we've all experienced times like this and can relate to the inner calm, when you have the place to yourself.

Hope you have more times, like this,
Bev :-)

Witaj Abmdsudi!
Very nice view, curious fragment of town.
Good fame and composition.
Nice colours, fog add flavor to this composition.
Well done.
Warm regards.

Hello Abmdsudi,

Pushkar is famous for religious people, I traveled this place in the year 2010, a nice morning and due to fog it is really misty, well presentation and good framing, background is Aravalli mountain range but it is quite far, nice presentation.

my warm regards,

I visited it is a hot day, something dry. a pity the annoying I had with the local people here. most of attractions are closed for photos and people are hunting us for money.nice this mood with the mist.



Bonjour Abmdsudi,

Un brouillard naturel ou bien un brouillard de pollution. Mais pas de doute l'atmosphère est mystérieuse. Beau point de vue sur la rive opposée.

An interesting sight in the morning, a good text ...
Good work, beautifully demonstrated the old town, good contrast, nice colors, nice moment captured. The beautiful architecture and the beginning of a new day.
All the best.

Hello Abmdsudi
Great picture with the city covered by a grey misty early morning light. It tempers all the colours and changes them in pastel tints. I think the picture is also great in black and white with these marvellous grey-tones.
Well done, Groet Rob

Hello Abmdsudi,
Nice picture from this sacred place, with the special atmosphere in the early morning.
Mysterious view.
When I was in Pushkar a few years ago, there was no water in the lake, all was dry, only a few pools were filled with water for the pudja.
Lovely composition.

Kind regrads Malgo

With regards from Luxembourg
