My Best 5 Photos from the Tungnath Mahadev Chopta Uttarakhand Trek, and Landscape Photography Tips

Hello! Here are some of my favourite clicks from the Tungnath Mahadev Trek in Chopta, Uttarakhand. Also offering advice on landscape photography of mountains and trek routes.

1. Himalayan Mountain views from Tungnath Trek

These views of the beautiful valleys of the Himalayas seen during the trip to Tungnath can mesmerize anyone. But seeing this view and taking a photo for others to see, both are different things.

When you want to show distant hills to someone, you can zoom in and show only hills. But we also have to show that these views will be visible during the Tungnath Mahadev trek, and will look exactly the same as seen in the photo. That's why intentionally include any close object like a tree, which is covered in this photo. This gives a feeling of how the real viewpoint is, and how far the hills are. So in this way you can show any landscape photo as a more dynamic scene with better realization of depth/distance.

Another important aspect of capturing landscape images are leading lines. This technique is the favorite of most travel photographers because it is always appreciated by the viewer. In this technique, landscape photographers use the natural leading lines like a road or a river to guide the viewer’s eye through the image. In this photo from the Tungnath Mahadev Trek, the trek path is used as a leading line to enhance the beauty of the landscape of the snow mountains. Size of the people in row on the trek also provide better depth to the viewer in understanding the distance. This way by using the leading lines one can click the best landscape photos.
