After ten days of clouds and seemingly constant rain, the sky was finally clear. Clear, I say!I was so happy. High above Leh near Leh Palace, I watched the moon set and smiled as the Milky Way slowly emerged, one of the first times I’ve seen the Milky Way in the Northern Hemisphere. And I had the photographic equipment to capture it in all its Himalayan glory at approximately 3657/12,000 ft. in elevation.
