Monastery on Hilltop

    Newer Older

    It is six years since I made my last trip to Leh. Ladakh in Jammu & Kashmir State is one of the most beautiful places on earth. The beauty of Ladakh haunts you and I have been wanting to make another trip this year. Not very sure if I can. All the more reason I go back nostalgically to the huge collection of images from my last trip. Here is one enchanting image of Spituk Gompa. I could not visit this famous Tibetan Budhist Monastery, but took some really memorable shots of it from a distance. View it large on black. Hit L on your keypad!

      If you ever have the opportunity to visit the Atlas in Morocco I think you would love that too, for similar reasons - the landscapes have a similar haunting quality. Wondeful photo.

      It is simple to see why you would want to visit again. There is a majesty and beauty about this place. The mountains and sky set an amazing backdrop for the Tibetan Budhist Monastery. The darkness on the Monastery seems symbolic.
