This is quite a daring composition you show us, almost totally hiding the famous monastery in the fog. But I think it works well and the marvellous atmosphere at this place is rather enhanced by the very limited visibility. The brightness of the prayer flags provides an alternative focus as the building is lost in the cloud. The long line of flags also gives a good depth to the picture, which could have been a bit uninteresting with nothing else to indicate distance.

Dobre ujęcie. Sznur z flagami ginie we mgle, ale prowadzi nasz wzrok do wyłaniającej się świątyni.

This is really something special, Kasia - an almost completely empty frame, but the shadows and hints of the famous Tiger's Nest that peek through the fog are enough to ground it, while the line of bright fabric is made even more striking by the surrounding whiteness. The whole composition flows beautifully, almost mystically - really well done.

Wow, this is a daring and intriguing shot. Superb how the line of clothes lead the eye towards the monastry hidden in the mist. I love the whole composition, Bravo
Greetings from Switzerland and have a great time

une mangnifique photo, simple et riche par la composition;
L'effet des tissus de couleur qui se perd dans la brume est superbe.

I have tried so often to use the fog in this manner, but I have never achieved these results. The line is a wonderful lead into the photo. The buildings above have just the right amount of clarity. Beautifully done.

C'est une superbe corde à linge, qui semble flotter dans les airs. Belles couleurs, et composition qui la met bien en valeur. C'est magique.

Very intriguing and fascinating photo, the subtlety is amazing. The colors of the flags really stand out against the fog and the composition as they disappear is quite eye catching. Very impressive image!

Kasiu, te Twoje mgielki i gra swiatla w innych obrazach przyciagaja uwage, to jest to co nie tylko ja lubie. Fajnie wyszukujesz tematy. Tutaj efekt magiczny. Swietny kadr. Brawo!

siwetne zdjecie, efekt znikajacyh we mgle choragiewek jest fenomenalny - te na pierwszym planie dodaly troche kolorytu i kontrastu do ledwie widocznego, tajemniczego klasztoru w tle,
pozdrawiam i czekam na jakies zdjecia z Polski (mam nadzieje ze odwiedzasz ojczyzne)

J'aime beaucoup ce cliché car il a un coté poétiqeue t on se demande où va cette corde ? et du coup notre regard esr guidé vers le temple accroché à la falaise
Bravo c'est une bonne idée.
I love this picture because it has a side poétiqeue t you wonder where is this rope? and suddenly our eyes esr guided to the temple on the cliff
Bravo is a good idea.

Not directly a favorite subject for me,
but despite that I still keep watching
the picture. It's original (you have a
great eye for details) and it's a
picture with a great quality and it's
also timeless..My compliments (and the
picture goes to my favorites).

A very different & interesting take on the famous monastery...Like the view through the low clouds. focus on the prayer flags was a good idea. Very nice!

This my dream destination, but so expensive and hard to get to.
Despite the not so good weather, you ended up with fantastic shot, full of mood and atmosphere. Even if we couldn't see the monastary very clearly, but it is good enough to feel the impressive architecture perching on the cliff, so exposed with sweeping view.
The best part of this iamge is the prayer flags leading in to the monastary through the misty atmosphere.
Great shot and congrats.

Even with difficult weather conditions you have succeeded in making a superb image.
We can very well imagine peace that must prevail here, very serene atmosphere enhanced by the presence of this fog.This somewhat symbolic rope with these touches of color seems to be the driver wire to arrive at this temple, path of wisdom.
Beautifully well done.

Explicit, a little odd and above all refreshing picture of the well photographed Tiger's Nest. Excellent composition where the viewer is led into the picture in an interesting way.

You've skillfully used the mist to give an eerie touch to your image. Its composition is delicate, both regarding the placement and the color management. The final result is quite like an ancient Asian watercolor.
Thanks for sharing,

Hello dear friend
Wow, what a beautiful view. Beautiful view of the architecture. Exposure and composition are very good. With respect

Hello Kasia, a very interesting picture, capturing a monastery that looks so mysterious showing through the mist and the fog. The line of colorful flags gives hope and shows the way. A great picture!

I think this is one of my favourite photos from your gallery and one that I would love to have taken. The line of prayer flags disappearing into the cloud with just a hint of the buildings is magical. Heaps of atmosphere and very well composed.
Kind Regards, Ann

One of the greatest in your gallery. It justifies going to Bhutan (and paying these horrendous fees for visa and so on) :-).

Great!! Just really great.

What a superb atmosphere full of spirit, the foggy day and the temple at the back add a lot to this very simple picture.
