Lunar Enlightenment

Photo and caption by ADITYA SINGH

The word Lunar comes from the feminine Latin Luna. In ancient Roman religion, Luna is the divine embodiment of the moon. This photograph was taken at Pangong Tso. It happened because of an obsession to capture the nights in Ladakh. The Full-Moon came to a desirable location in the frame late at night as the cold rumbling winds made the task tougher. This was an attempt to show the power and divinity of the surreal rock. It was a moment of contemplations and realizations. The Moon has blessed us with existence as without it we would not have lived. No wonder the ancients considered it a God.

Location: Pangong Tso, Ladakh, Jammu and Kashmir, India
