Photographer's Note

Hello dear friends,

I traveled Uttarakhand in the month of October, 2014. After arriving Kolkta to Rishikesh I started to Chamba, a beautiful place of Garahal in the state of Uttarakhand. Tehri Dam is near of Chamba and it is the highest dam in India and one of the highest in the world. It is a multi-purpose rock and earth-fill embankment dam on the Bhagirathi River near Tehri in Uttarakhand, India.

The Tehri Dam and the Tehri Pumped Storage Hydroelectric Power Plant are part of the Tehri Hydropower Complex which also includes the 400 MW Koteshwar Dam. Power is distributed to Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Punjab, Delhi, Haryana, Jammu & Kashmir, Chandigarh, Rajasthan and Himachal Pradesh. The complex will afford irrigation to an area of 270,000 hectares irrigation stabilization to an area of 600,000 hectares and a supply of 270 million imperial gallons of drinking water per day to the industrialized areas of Delhi, Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand.

The light was ideal to bring out the colours and detailing of the sky, hill textures. The total environment is really charming specially water body which is surrounded by hill. I captured this at the time of afternoon when the light was appropriate for shooting.

with best wishes to all,
