On the Bridge

On the Bridge

Just minutes after setting out on the hike up from the valley floor to the village of Ogyen Choling, I came to this wobbly suspension bridge spanning a cold, swift moving river. This woman was on the bridge, moving in neither direction, staring out at the water moving towards and then under her. As I took the first step onto the bridge she became altered to my presence and looked in my direction. I was already prepared, hoping to capture an image with her looking out over the river. Instead, I got this shot with her looking right at me, the eyes weathered and skeptical, the skin hardened by years in the harsh Himalayan sun.
