Portrait of Bhutan

Bhutan carpenter.  Bhutan Photo tour with Adam monk

These are random shots from a roadside stop on the way to Trongsa Dzong in central Bhutan shot on one of my Bhutan Photo tours.  This fellow and the rest of his team were in the process of putting up a viewing platform shelter on the opposite side of the valley from the Trongsa Dzong (temple fortress).  

And like almost all officially placed lookout platforms, it was in the wrong place!  It was situated directly opposite the Dzong and the view was very uninspired, the workers themselves were much more interesting, this fellow in particular.  He has such a lovely open face, and the light was just right.  I got some more interesting pictures of the Dzong later.

Trongsa Province, Central Bhutan.  Shot with a Canon 5D Mk II, 24-105mm f4L lens.
