Miles to go before I sleep...

     We are fortunate to have all kinds of terrain in India. The western region has a large desert called the Thar desert. As military aviators we used to fly very low at times. In such terrain there is no fear of any high-rises or invisible cables as there is only sand and sand for miles. This was a scene I had come across a long time back and was etched in my mind. Finally decided to put it to paper with the help of some reference pictures. 
     Hope you like it. Have a nice weekend.

    1. Thanks a lot Carol. The header happens to be the biggest glacier in the world, 'The Siachen glacier'. Siachen means Wild Rose but unfortunately this happens to be the highest battlefield in the world... between India and Pakistan.
