The Blanketed Valley

The Blanketed Valley

The village of Ogyen Choling sits atop a large hill, overlooking the valley approach below. Now accessible via road, I walked up from the valley floor during the trip when I captured this image. Maybe that is why the image resonates with me: I crossed the river below and walked up to this vantage point. I rose early in the morning and set up at a great location to capture this image. The clouds moved through the valley with speed, making each image different from the last, and the changing temperature created a layer of fog that moved rapidly up the valley floor. Working quickly I captured several frames and later merged them into the panoramic image here. It works in color, but in black and white it brings out the details, the chill, and the blanket of dense fog.
