The Wait

(Kyagar Tso, Ladakh, India)
Arpan Uzir (Assam, India)

This image was shot at Kyagar Tso in Ladakh when I saw this monk brace towards the lake to get his cap that was blown away by the strong winds. There was an incoming storm from the other end and the dramatic clouds were building up in the sky. The changing cloud formations, the play of light and shadows on the mountains and the lake with the monk standing there, made the whole scene look so grandeur and majestic. As far as I could see, the monk waited there maybe in awe of the beautiful dramatic scene that was building up ahead of him.
