Tso Moriri

Tso Moriri (Moriri Lake), Ladakh

Tso Moriri ('Tso' means Lake in Ladakhi) is one of the highest lakes [4,595 m (15,075 ft)]. A nice, calm and freaking cold place.

It will be great if someone can crack the mystry behind the blue stripes. It is a sunset and sun was setting behind my back.

This was taken on an Occupy London StockExchange march to the Houses of Parliament in London. You can see the fullsize image on Flickr.

A picture of my niece-in-law I took sort of accidentally while I was playing with a new toy (SB-700 flash). I'm not familiar with toddlers; she wouldn't sit still to even take a picture until I gave her a bottle, and even then I had to sit her on my lap. I say "sort of" accidentally because she bumped her head on the couch a few minutes before and had a huge lump on the right side of her forehead; this was the only picture from the set that hides the bump.
