Photograph of a river scene in a valley on the Kashmir Road, near Bhadarwah, Jammu and Kashmir, from the Macnabb Collection, taken by Samuel Bourne in 1863. Bourne undertook three extensive expeditions to Kashmir and the Himalayas between 1863 and 1866. The same year that this image was taken Bourne submitted a number of photographs to the 6th Annual Exhibition of the Bengal Photographic Society. He impressed judges and critics with the clarity and composition of his images, and won a gold medal for one of his views of Wanga Valley, taken during that year's expedition.
