“Morning Light, Potala Palace, Lhasa, Tibet”

I am just enamoured with this fantastic photograph. See this award-winning shot, by Chris Atkinson, and more at the 2005 Banff Mountain Photography Competition. Thanks, Trina!
“Just prior to my first trip to Tibet, I reread Heinrich Harrer’s book Seven Years in Tibet. With images fresh in my mind, I set out early one morning to find the medical clinic he helped establish. I found only ruins but was rewarded with a beautiful sight of the morning light striking the Potala Palace. The smell of burning juniper and incense and the chanting of the devoted filled the air and made for a most memorable morning.”
