Despite having my camera break half an hour after arriving at Annapurna Base Camp, I still have truckloads of photos from the Annapurna Sanctuary Trek still to upload- and maybe a story or two as well.
A. brought this photo to my attention as one of her favourites a couple of weeks back, and as she explained why she liked it, it grew on me as well. The prayer-flags among the Himalayan peaks are always a delightful scene- the colour contrast against the stark blue and white of snow and sky is dramatic. But it also captures a series of elements and dichotomies- between the man-made flags and the natural mountains; spirituality reflected both in the prayers and in the majesty of the high places; the hard rock versus the flowing flags; wind and earth; man’s efforts and God’s creative power; the list goes on.
Really, each photograph is up to the individual to appreciate however, and so I shall leave you to do so. Or otherwise.
Back from Tassie soon. See you shortly.
