Monks of the Mountains

This picture was shot at the Hemis Monastery during my trip to Ladakh, India. As I stepped into the courtyard I saw the monk sitting at the entrance of the temple. The white drapes and the monk in the red robe seated in the corner allows one to focus on the subject while having a significant amount of space for an interesting background to balance out the scene. This photograph was my personal favorite of the day because it takes me back in time to this ethereal place.
