Photographer's Note

A small temple we passed on a trek in the Himalayas. While the snow peaks may be hard to see in this ultra-wideangle shot, the focus is on the temple and the flag in the foreground. The wide-open bugyals or meadows that cover the higher ridges of the himalayas are usually occupied by short, priestless temples such as this one, with a red flag for easy spotting from afar. The villagers bring in their livestock, pray for a moment in these temples, and gather firewood from the nearby oak forests.
