The Great & The Small

For me,  mountains against the sky speak of Swiss postcards, monasteries on distant crags echo guide books, and nestling villages are all too quaint.  It was the scale of this Himalayan landscape that posed the greatest challenge.  I wrestled with cliches and lenses and the skyline.

But when a lone figure, herdmen, goats, made their way through the landscape leaving tracks and intimate traces, they defined the scale most dramatically.
