Buddhist monks walking along Lamuyang Lake

A small group of monks from Ganden Sumtseling Gompa took a walk around Lamuyang Lake in the early evening.  I was strolling along the wooden pathway and stopped to photograph them as they approached.  The monastery sits on a hill above the lake a short distance from here and I was told monks often circle it before dusk.  I did love photographing Sumtseling that evening but this was a good moment where I felt a connection with this place and her people.
