Photographer's Note

Leh, Leh-Ladakh - altitude 3500 m

Namgyal Tsemo Gompa with five-colored prayer flags fluttering in the west wind, stands atop the crag behind Leh palace. A white building like UFO under the left is the Shanti Stupa.
Blue, white, red, green and yellow represent space, wind, fire, water and earth respectively.

To capture this image, I climbed the craggy mountain in the morning when sunlight hit the gompa (monastery).
