Gangtey Monastery Photography Blog

Bhutan Portrait

August 10th, 2015

There is a lovely small Monastery I always visit on my Bhutan Photographic tours each year, on the slopes of the Phobjikha Valley in Western Bhutan.  Normally it’s very quiet and serene with just a few peaceful Monks and a stunning view down the valley.  As I have been going there for quite a few years, we usually get invited in to photograph the morning prayers in the small temple, a special privilege not normally granted (see this post). Not this year.

Shot a few minutes after the previous image in the Gangtey Monastery temple with the young Monks at Prayer being led by a senior Monk.  Shot very discretely with the Fuji XPro-1, again with the permission of all the Monks.
