Photographer's Note

I have just come back from Nepal and am repacking my bags to fly off to Poland for Christmas in two days so this is a quick post to wish all my TE friends a lovely Christmas break.

The image shows Basanta Pavillion in the Garden of Dreams - a small park in central Kathmandu which feels miles away from... central Kathmandu. The pavillion houses a restaurant and there was a large Christmas tree right by the entrance.

As I was preparing to take this photo a man appeared with a long stick. I was a bit surprised and almost expected him to start fishing in the pond. It turned out he was there to ignite the lamps.

No time to think about changing settings - I had no choice but to opt for this long exposure shot.

I'll upload more images from Iraqi Kurdistan upon my return - some time in 2015.
