Buddha in Meditation !!

This idol of Buddha was a common sight across various monasteries, but the point of view for this particular Monastery in Diskit was befitting. From a distance it looked like Buddha was deep in meditation amidst the mountains, much like we read about in our mythologies. Unfortunately it was an army area and I had to shoot from a really huge distance. I tried centering around to see if i could a closer angle, but the closer i got, the mountains looked like a barren patch of sand lying close, so this is it
