Title: Prayer Flags Before The Himalayas

Location: Near Pheriche, Nepal

Description: Early morning light brightens the snow on the peak behind the tattered prayer flags strung high atop of wing-scrubbed pass. The flags will remain, letting the wind pull them apart as the intentions of compassion spreading through the world spill from their fabric.

Shot with a Canon 7D and Canon 28-300mm L lens with settings of ISO 100, 150mm, f/5.6, 1/800th of a second
