Sunset at Tungnath is a fine art photograph by Subhankar Das. This picture takes the viewers to the amazing experience of the interplay of light and colour in the clouds during sunset on the mountains of Tungnath in Uttarakhand, India. The place is famous for the Lord Shiva temple at the altitude of almost 12,000 feet above sea-level. One has to undertake an arduous uphill trek of 4.5 km from Chopta to reach the temple.
Fine art gives one a kind of aesthetic pleasure that the artist himself hunts in his artistic journey. Photography, especially fine art landscape photography, makes one feel the bounty of nature and the picturesque landscapes of nature inculcate a sense of oneness in the soul and mind of the viewers that is somewhat spiritual in nature and thus fill one’s mind with awe and inspiration.
