Pebbles underneath

Took the shot when I was on the way to my engagement, approximately 245kms far from Kathmandu. The sun has just risen and we were out for freshening up (after a whole night long drive), while I took the cam and wandered around to the stream.
Opened up the photo bucket, found a snap, did a little PS and this came out.
The water was so clean - transparent - that it barely feels like the pebbles are under water.

Dissolution @ Origin of Bagmati

We had one good hike around the Shivapuri hill and finally got to the top. It was an amazing walk - all the way through the lush green vegetation - and mingling with the light and shade as we move uphill and down.
[Details :]

I took this shot at Bagdwar. Bagdwar is known to be the origin of Bagmati - the holy river flowing through the sacred shrine PashupatiNath. Apart from cleansing the bad deeds, Bagmati is also a major contributor in the valley's sewage system - converting herself from a clean river (as seen in the photo) to a sewage (Sad to say - but true).

btw, thanks Dhk for the close-up filter.
