Photographer's Note

A colourful Buddha on the way to Shanti Stupa.

There are two ways to reach the Shanti Stupa on the outskirts of Leh; a stiff climb up some steep steps or the easier but longer route along the road that curves round behind the stupa.
The steps make for good acclimatisation exercise, but this time we decided to walk up the road, passing this colourful concrete Buddha on the way. The sun was setting, and the warm low-angled light really picked out the details and emphasised the bright colours of the carving.
If you want to know more about the Shanti Stupa project, you can have a look at their website.
