Somewhere over the rainbow . . .

This picture was taken at one of the most beautiful places I have seen on earth, "Kel", in the Pakistani controlled part of Kashmir. Unfotunately this is a hot zone and not everyone has the chance to or is allowed to see this amazingly beautiful place. Among snow capped mountains, green hills covered with wild flowers and the rainbow you can see a bomb shelter right next to the house, every dwelling had one with it because you never knew when the bombs would come flying in.


  1. Tragic...what we do to a place as beautiful as this......and the rainbow is like a bonus ...:)

    Love that song from the Wizard of Oz!!! I leave this space humming :)

  2. it's too bad that scenic places such as this are dangerous to get to.

    *i think i see the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.

  3. It was ine of the mmost amazing places in summers, i spent a lot of time there, in winters too the white snow all over was beautiful, this picture is of the summer house on top of the hill, between the house and the next mountain was a river and there was a tall water fall on the other mountain, can't forget.
