Nighttime Blessings

A simple nighttime photograph to finish the week. I spent a good amount of time on this Mustang rooftop taking in the peacefulness of the prayer flags fluttering in the breeze, under a canopy of stars. The flags are ubiquitous in this part of Nepal, which is largely Buddhist. The colours of the flags always appear in the same order and represent the five elements. It is thought that blessings are released when the wind agitates the flags. I took the photograph because I liked how the moonlight lit up the colours against the starry skies. I also liked how the simplicity of the scene matched that of the moment I experienced. Mustang, Nepal.
