A Ride to Remember

On top of the world - This shot is taken at an altitude of 14000 feet above sea level in the Himalayas. I went there on a motorcycle with my wife and had camped on the roadside for an evening. This was when I noticed another group of riders passing by as this (Ladakh) is a very popular destination of motorcycle riders. I got down low on my knees and took this shot with DSLR. The bikers waived at us as they clearly noticed I was taking their photo
