Softly softly, like a snow leopard hiding in the Himalayas. The quiet temple of Tamshing rests peacefully all year, until the annual festival. Rustling with colour and kindness, the locals crowd inside to celebrate the monks, the chams, the blessings. It's festive, unpredictable and vibrant.

Behind The Scenes

These photos were taken during the 2013 Bhutan Photo Tour. Every year I make one trip to Bhutan to immerse in the peacefulness of a nation.

You might be surprised also to know that all the photos shown here were taken on a Fujifilm X-M1, a mirrorless camera with interchangable lenses. I wanted to see just how far you can push these little units before craving a full frame DSLR. Turns out you can go a long way with this format.
