Ladakh landscape in acrylic( 2)

I was just waiting for my canvas to arrive to start the next painting of the ladakh mountains. Thrilled to receive another set of photos  of my trip to ladakh from my friend Coralie.All the photos bring back the beautiful moments when our group  of woman explorers  saw the different scenes that went past on our trips. Our second day in Ladakh we went to Khardung la 18380 ft ,highest motorable road  in the world . We had a nice cinnamon tea  in the cafe there.Cinnamon tea was so enjoyable with the music and everyone in a mood to dance.Before we reached the top there were views of the mountains with the snow capped peaks . The sky with the clouds were so blue and it  looked like in a trance. Against the rocks on one side the ice looked like  trickling down from the top of the mountains.It was an awesome sight.No vegetation to be seen but the colors reflecting from the rocks and  the snow all were beyond imagination. 
My photos look dull compared to what it was. But in my painting I have tried to bring out the colors  I saw there . I am pleased with the foreground I made  where I mixed lot of colors .The sky  I could not do justice to the view I think.Overall I am happy and hope to have some comments from all my audience. 
 Painting size 12x10 inches
