Vibrant Flags

Vibrant Flags

Located on one of the several mountain passes we transversed in Bhutan, I climbed from the parking area up a hillside covered in thousands of prayer flags. Some were old, tattered, faded and weather beaten; others were brand new, having been raised just a days before our arrival. Covered with Buddhist scripture, these flags stand for as long as they survive in the Himalayan wind and weather, only to be replaced after they have disintegrated based on the timeline of nature. While the hillside of prayer flags was a great sight, I tried to focus on a smaller scene here, foregoing the vastness for the details; focusing on the vibrant colors in front of the deep blue sky.
