As I prepare to leave the Himalayas yet again, I take a deep breath and try to absorb and capture the beauty of the mountains all around me….not with my camera, but with my heart and brain. Suddenly an arc of different colours appeared above me, above the morning sun!! I do not care if it is technically due to diffraction of light or refraction of light, it’s a rainbow to me. I grab my camera and take a picture. Just then, there are sounds of fluttering of wings and bird sounds. A green woodpecker, 4 blue magpies and over a dozen parrots appear out of nowhere and fly from one tree to another, leading me up the 150 steps to the top….a delightful goodbye from all things beautiful which make it much harder to leave….
