Photographer's Note

The village of Komik lies below the Komik Gompa or Monastery, and is visible first from the immediate approach from Langza.

Komik village (4,250 m) is said to be the highest village in the world, possibly untrue (or is it the highest village in world linked by a motorable road?...that’s more likely).

The views of the Komik village from the monastery at almost 4,600 metres above sea level with the snow capped mountain ranges in the background, the play of light & shadows on the mountain slopes, the furiously fluttering prayer flags were awe inspiring to say the least!

The zoomed view compressed the perspective view of the village with part of the mountain slopes in the BG.

Post Gregg's comment : I am posting this version of the same picture, where the brown tones were as they were in the RAW file, before I boosted the contrast in PS.
