Third Day of MTB Himachal 2010 - Riders reaching river-side(Satluj) after a long stretch

On third day of MTB Himachal 2010, weather was good with clear/bright sky, good sunlight and we started our journey from Tanni Jubber to Kullu Sarahan.... Journey started from Tanni Jubber lake and we took a very narrow road to hit the highway which connects Shimla with Rampur... The whole stretch was beautiful and was surrounded with very high hills covered with snow... Whole  stretech was very risky because of some sharp turns and deep valleys... Here are few photographs after we hit the main highway...

MTB Riders on highest speed in the downhill stretch parallel to snow covered mountain ranges (On Third day) : Posted by VJ SHARMA on www.travellingcamera.com : Hope you have been enjoying this PHOTO JOURNEY through various routes of MTB Himachal 2010... Its 10th post on this great Himalayan event for passionate bike Riders... on third day, I noticed the highest speed of all the riders in a downhill stretch in parallel to snow capped mountain ranges... Check out some of the photographs of this downhill stretch across snow covered hills...First I wanted to give you a feel of the road where we were waiting to catch fast riders of MTB Himachal 2010... Road was situated on a very high hill in parallel to these mountains covered with snow... wonderful place with nice weather and beautiful surroundings...Here comes a group of riders and Cameras are not set to estimate their speed and adjust accordingly... It took time to adjust our cameras to shoot exactly what we wanted to shoot... At least I tried various things with first few riders and was able to identify right place with right settings....They were moving like anything.... Amazing actions, styles n movements...Even folks on the road were moving downwards toward the deep valley to save themselves fom these fast moving riders :) btw he is another Photographer struggling to set himself for shooting this rider...Rider number 41 ... Most of the riders knew each other by their rider numbers and it was difficult to remember the names of everyone but was very easy to know each other by rider nunber because they were sepnding most of the time on the roads crossing each other...Another rider on full speed in the middle of beautiful himalayan mountains in the state of Himachal Pradesh.... Thanks to MTB Himachal 2010...Mr. Ranjan Mandyal playing in air during MTB Himachal 2010... I got a chance to meet some great folks who have passion about bke riding and do lot of other good things in their lives... Ranjan was one of the guy I met and got a chance to understand him better... Hope to meet all of them again :)Here is another MTb rider in style... moving towards the final goal which is near Satluj river near main highway..Amcha rider from Maharshtra Police... a nice photographer as well... He was planning to host an exhibition in Kolkata and also invited us... Hope to see him next year again...Somehow I wanted to share all these photographs in black and white but it would have been unfair to the colorful beauty of surrounding himlayan mountains....Loved this journey and the colors of himalayas...
