Meditation At The Taj by Clive S

This man is a Tibetan priest, resident over the Yamuna River from the Taj Mahal.

Such a gentle and enchanting soul – he has a tiny temple that he built himself, by hand.

This was one of those little by-chance encounters, that left me feeling inspired.

ISO 200, 80mm, f/5, 1/640 sec

Pretty much straight out of the camera. The only post was a very slight crop and sharpening.
