Thiksey monastery

There is a serenity and sense of acceptance about Buddhist monasteries that few other man-made institutions are able to evoke.

To me, the flowers framing the scene really set off the essence of Thiksey monastery. Initially, I wanted a photo with a monk in the upper part of the frame - however, I decided that the shot without a human figure better reflects the serenity of the place.

Shot Details
Canon 10D , Tokina 19-35/3.5-4.5
