Photographer's Note

The Tibetan Long Horn, or 'Dung Chen' - an integral ceremonial instrument in Tibetan Buddhist ritual. These monks were practicing in Labrang lamasery in Xiahe, Gansu, an enclave of the Yellow Hat Sect, or Gelug branch of Tibetan Buddhism... a burned exposure from the blisteringly bright mountain sunlight.

ISO, 640ASA; focal, 70.00mm.
