It was very early
I arrived in Shannan in the early hours of the morning. Dawn would soon break across the horizon. The small town is an almost invisible dot on the Chinese map of Tibet. As always – it’s a habit that I have – I visited one of the monasteries.
I thought I was alone in the building but suddenly a man came in from the darkness and illuminated the room with his candles. I quietly took his photo, trying the capture the spiritual mood of the scenery.
Even now, I still look back on this special morning with fond memories. It was a wonderful way to “wake up” and the beginning of another day full of adventures with my Better Moments workshop group.
PS. I had spend the night in a 4×4 truck in which we had previously climbed the mountain pass Kamba La, a high mountain pass at an elevation of 4.852m (15,915ft) above sea level.
