It was a peaceful and quiet morning when I took this picture at Gyantse.
History:-
In the year 1904, this was the same fortress where the brave and unyielding Gyangtse people using primitive weapons and fought against the British invaders who had equipped with advanced guns.
The Gyantse people jumped off the Cliff without surrending.

Very nice and very accurate exposure. I am see many less experienced photogs having over-exposed shot for this due to the whites in the photogs... Great shot worthy of a postcard!

Benign... hope your dream of going there will come soon.
I am using D70 body, with 35-135 nikon lens and a CP filter.
Hand-held shot without tripod. Set manually at F8 & 1/60sec.
The natural morning lighting is one of the most important factor
for achieving such shot.. luckly me :)
