The Winterline

As the cold weather sets in, an interesting meteorological anomaly occurs in Mussoorie. The Winterline. The winterline is basically a false horizon, rising above the actual horizon after the monsoon clouds dissipate. I’ve been told it’s caused by pollution, but I choose to ignore this unromantic suggestion. It’s hard to describe, but basically a line forms in the sky each evening and the sun sets on that line, rather than on the actual horizon below the line. It’s really gorgeous. I don’t have a picture yet, but if you follow this link there’s a picture and a brief description in the middle of the page.

Also, I’ve posted birthday pictures in their own album and added a few pictures of the snowy mountains to the “scenery” album. Enjoy!
