Missing Rain and Astore Valley

barish 450x301 Missing Rain and Astore Valley

Rain in Astore Valley, Gilgit-Baltistan, Pakistan

Early in the morning, dark clouds all over the valley and it started raining. I felt i wasn’t alive. It was like a dream valley. Snowy mountains, Green fields, puffy clouds right above me and tiny rain droplets on car’s windscreen. Who would want to miss that moment? I seriously was not in my senses to take my camera out and start shooting. I rather preferred to enjoy that moment with a hot cup of tea  from road side hotel.

I am missing rain and Astore Valley.

    You know, I remember visiting Astore last year. When I first arrived, sat in the jeep, it rained. I remember thinking “I’ve travelled thousands of miles & it’s like i’m back in Britain, only the people are nicer” :D

    I love your photos Daniel, keep up the good work!
