Just another gravel in the road

During a photography expedition to Ladakh, India, I visited the Diskit monastery. While photographing the daily life of the monks at the monastery, situated on the mountain hill in a beautiful valley, I happened to notice a young monk standing alone on the gravel field beneath us. I knew that I had to capture that moment.

Location: Nubra Valley, Ladakh, India
