Sumit Arora clicked this photograph at Lansdowne, Uttarakhand.

"A very misty morning made the shot difficult and I had to somehow turn it to my advantage. The result I feel does some justice to that beautiful morning and the views in the lower Himalayas. The mist, it seems, flows like a 100 rivers through the valleys below," writes Sumit.
