Flags over Peaceful Water

Flags over Peaceful Water
November 19, 2010

Hopping over a bit, today we revisit Bhutan, and the set of prayer flags that drape over the pond at the Royal Botanical Garden (which is more like a National Park).  Prayer flags are always supposed to be situated close to the water, and this long string is positioned right over the water, creating a beautiful mirror image in the placid lake.  I struggled whether to do this image in black and white or color... I like the color of the prayer flags, but the light isn't too spectacular.  So I'm posting it in monochrome for the moment, perhaps I'll go back and also post the color version so you all can let me know which you prefer.  But, in the meantime, enjoy.
