Rinpung Dzong, Bhutan (2018)

This was a brief stop at the end of one of our days in Bhutan, right before heading back to the hotel for the evening. Bhutan is so incredibly photogenic everywhere, just simply an amazing place to visit. I hope it always stays the way it is, though inevitably things will (and are) changing despite attempts to preserve itself.

Given its not as popular as some of the other locations, there was almost nobody there. And there were a few young monks walking around, presenting nice (albeit too classic/overdone) photo ops.

The views over the valley from the top were really nice as well.

On the way back, we noticed some locals playing archery. We got off and observed for a bit, it was really interesting to watch. And impressive! Their target was REALLY far away, which was hard to capture because I left my gear in the car and only had a 85mm with me.

Target in the distance, time to retrieve the arrows

Gear List:
Leica M10 w/ 35 Summilux, Fuji GFX 50s w/ GF 23mm, Sony a7r iii w/ 85mm GM
