Phuntsholing to Thimphu


As it is said that an hour before sunrise and sunset are golden hours for photography I got up early in the morning ready to go out.   Again the Nature was against me.  It was cloudy and raining.  I had to sit in the room and watch people going out with umbrellas.

I could go out just for few minutes walking under cover of building balconies to the nearby place of prayer wheel.  I took few photos of the prayer wheel, spanned it wishing for clear weather during the course of our journey.

Prayers are written on the wheel.  Holding and spinning the wheel is praying.  This is the way any one, illiterate and ignorant also pray God

We had breakfast and started by 9am towards Thimphu.   We were told that it would be a scenic journey and we can capture nice landscapes.

Of course the journey was scenic with clouds hanging down from mountains on to trees, and visibility was just a couple of metres because of fog.

There would be occasional drizzle and sunrays would flicker for a short period as the clouds pass by.

We stopped at Chukha project for a break and proceeded towards Thimphu having lunch on the way.
